Tone amongst House Dems "more positive than expected" as Pelosi makes Syria case


LINK
quote:

Washington (CNN) - Making a case for military action in Syria, Secretary of State John Kerry and other top administration officials told House Democrats in a phone call Monday to expect more international support in the coming days and argued the collateral damage of any strike would be low, according to two sources on the call.

While both sources said the tone among House Democrats was more positive than expected–given their anti-war fervor over the years–one source said there was still a "healthy dose of skepticism and concern."


no big deal, i guess. i thought this bit was amusing:
quote:

For her part, Rice argued the crisis in Syria is at the core of U.S. national security interests, because of the use of chemical weapons and possible proliferation.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi at one point asked Kerry if she could interrupt and made the point in support of using force, saying that punishing Bashar Al-Assad for using chemical weapons should be a pillar of national security, according to sources on the call.

The hypocrisy on the democrats part is amusing.

If this attack on Syria goes forward, we're in deep shite.

Obama could offer up a shite sandwich to the House Dems.

And they would tuck their napkins into their collars and open wide.

You're assuming that 47% of America even knows there's a country called Syria.

What happens when Iran and Assad strike Israel through Hezbollah? What happens when they try to destabilize Jordan?

Nothing in the region works in a vacuum. There will be a counter to our strikes. The only thing certain about striking Syria is that we don't know how they will react along with their allies. This is a regional war and there is going to be some kind of severe blowback at the US and/or our allies.

Nah. They simply have to claim that the Syrians and the GOP are in cahoots to deny people their Obamaphones.

Didn't seem to be a bad guy when she was probably getting all kinds of kickbacks on her visit a few yrs ago.
