We've lost any element of surprise with Obama telegraphing his intentions.


All it was ever going to be was a few cruise missiles, you don't lose that advantage because you lose the "element of surprise".



Disagree especially if one of the targets was Assad in his office. But first let me be be clear, I in no way support attacking Syria at this point. I consider it a civil war and none of our business.

Syria has their rocket launchers, etc.on the move


Brilliant lets blow a million dollar cruise missile on trying to hit a mobile scud launcher worth 50K,


Absolutely, it obviously doesn't make economic sense but few wars do unless your are a government contractor.

and impact on stationary targets will likely be minimal.


Why? You are talking out of your ass,


Perhaps but if they have moved most of their hardware and supplies from the likely targets, I still say the damage would be far less than if we had struck while the iron was hot. But again I don't think it was justified.

So you believe in assassinations and you also believe Assad will never go to his office again and hasn't been there for the past several days?

Hannity is a f***king troll and has no respectable say in the discussion.

That's true but interestingly, Hannity opposes a war with Syria as of two days ago. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Did Hannity flip-flop on this issue?

Look I'm playing devils advocate here. I made it clear that I don't believe an attack against Syria is justified. But IF, we were going to attack, then sure why not target Assad since he is obviously being held responsible for using chemical weapons against his own people? And yes, if I thought the U.S. might send a cruise missile through my office window, you better bet your sweet arse I wouldn't be holding regular office hours. Would you?

He'll never admit it.

Obama strayed off the prompter and started talking like he's Richard Roundtree

But now the world knows, he's just Steve Urekle.

Unless he says "Effective immediately, I resign" he will NEVER say exactly what I want to hear.

He probably wants congressional approval so it won't go through since England bailed and there's UN talk that we don't totally know who used the chemical weapons. He can still say he's tough but blame a lack if action on Republicans.


Exactly. These people are low handed. They lie to the public through their media and no one will care.They are just terribly inept and purposeful.

He can't make the decision and is walking the fence...and he wants no accountability for consequences! The guy doesn't know what to do and is in way over his head!

There is a political negative for Obama....the Muslim Brotherhood and AQ will be PISSED at being thrown under the bus...and in a WMD attack at that.

If there is any dirty laundry floating around per Obama/AQ/MB deals...

Who's action? Are we sure that Assad used the weapons? Do we know it wasn't a really fricked up PR stunt by AQ/MB?

I think Obama actually did the right thing today for a change.

So you want us to bomb Syria because Syria may have allegedly bombed Syria?
