Obama is going to bomb Syria in order to improve his approval ratings

American voters tend to approve of Presidents much more during times of war. With such a shitty start to his second term and his approval falling, I am convinced that Obama is going ahead with military action in order to gain approval among Americans.

Not sure if serious. 90% do not want this war.

A few missile strikes isn't going to rally support, you need troops on the ground for that premise to work.

And just about everyone is tired of endless war in the Middle East.

This is foolishness.

I hope he does bomb them.

His approval rating will drop like a frickng rock and 2016 will be a democratic bloodbath.

With only 8% of Americans wanting military intervention, I don't see how this would help him in any way.

Agreed.

I highly doubt that. Not based on a strike on Syria anyway.

I'd say going into Afghanistan was widely hailed at the time. I still view it as a needed mission. It got kicked to the curb by the lust to dethrone Saddam though, and now its like they are intertwined as being unnecessary somehow.

Afghanistan/Bin Laden was the right mission. Now he's dead, so lets boogie.

I am cynical enough to think that presidents do this sort of thing (thinking of Clinton) for ratings or at least a distraction, but it doesn't fit in this case.

1. He would have already done it.
2. Quite a few are against it.
3. There is a specific episode (the attack) that he can point to.

Obama will likely authorize a limited cruise missile strike to save face but that will be it. I seriously doubt it will improve his sagging approval rating considering most of the populace don't approve of the U.S. getting involved.

L oh fricking L

I can see it now.

"Tonight on hardball, we discuss America's involvement in the Syrian civil war. In 2013, President Obama went to Syria at the behest of an insistent Republican congress...."

What worries me with this is Putin's response - he's been hard pressed saying that they will respond if Obama does anything, I'm just worried that shite will escalate in response to lobbing a few missiles at a camel for no particular reason.

Why respond, he just wants the US tied down in endless wars. Russia has no interest in getting involved, just us getting involved.

And, so after we bomb Syria to degrade Assad's military, the Rebels will go on the advance and end up creating a bloodbath in Damascus with house-to-house fighting and another 100,000 dead.

All because of ONE supposed chemical attack that killed hundreds?

That and for their legacy. Always want to be on the right side of history.
