    And I say so what? We've spent BILLIONS in that part of the World that is a Hellhole and after we finally depart for good it will be as if we were never there, save for the eqpmt. left behind. Their religion embraces, as well as encourages, this type of savagery. Let them kill each other.

    The dogs bark but the caravan moves on.

    The ugly side of war. Assad has taken the gloves off.

    Egypt is a perfect example of "damned if you do & damned if you don't". If we topple Assad then they get Al Qaeda or the Muslim Brotherhood. See Egypt. :wavey:

    We have surely been running arms to Syrian insurgents for some time and many speculate that was the real reason over the State Dept's lies over Benghazi as it was the shipping point via Turkey to Syria. Arms that will inevitably be used against us and/or Israel. America needs to wake up and accept that fact that you cannot reason with savages. Keep your enemies weak and they are never so weak as when they are fighting internecine wars. They will never like us nor accept us no matter what we do as we are Infidels according to their belief. Let 'em rot.

    Tiro. You have some points that have some level of validity, but it is simply wrong to use chemical weapons against children no matter what religion the children's parents are.

    We don't need American troops on the ground there, it's not our war and their are no "good guys" for us to support. Either way it's a bad outcome.

    We just need to use a drone to kill Assad and his cabinet and then back off. Tell the world we did it, because quite frankly, anyone that does some messed up **** like that deserves killing and we'll drop a missle on anyone else that thinks about it and then call it a day.

    I agree, it's wrong regardless of politics. We should have a standing policy, use chemical weapons and the U.S. military kills you and your entire administration, no refunds or exchanges allowed and no questions asked.

    Instead we have a President that makes empty threats. :upeyes:

    We need to go in and straighten them out.

    After all, our policies have been great success in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Lybia, and Egypt. :upeyes:

    Regards,

    I agree. We have a long history of failing at nation building and it's a losing proposition. We don't need to fight their war, rebuild their cities and tell them how to live.

    I don't see any other country coming to this country helping us solve our problems, and we sure do have a lot of problems. Why should Americans get killed in a country with people who hate us. I don't give a **** if both sides in Syria wipe each other off the face of the earth. Take care of the citizens (legal ones anyway) in this country first!

    McCain is banging his drums kinda loudly now.
    We have 4 warships/carriers now in position over there.
    The writing is on the wall ....
    I think we will hit some airfields and installations and offices...then Obummer will come on TV and said he did it for the children in Syria.

    We agree. Now, lets try to come to agreement how encompassing the M.I.C. definition is....
     
  16. The government is included. Sanctimonious politicians like to bring home the bacon.

    Mo Brooks and Richard Shelby are great examples. They decry Democrat spending on social programs, but think nothing of spending on unnecessary defense programs.

    Welfare is welfare.

    Be careful. If you start saying things like "unnecessary defense programs", you may quickly come to the idea that welfare is welfare is govt spending on "unnecessary programs". If you drop one word....
