Let's just mind our own business. Let them kill each other if they want. It's nothing to us. Obama is cutting military benefits, so leave them alone.

President Obama was smart to ask Congress for approval even though he doesn't need it. This way when no action is taken on Syria, it is not his fault. Blame the Obama haters in the Republican Tea Party House for the defeat and help the 2014 election for the Democrats. Loving the Old Guard Republican versus Tea Party in fighting. Politics at their best.

Everyone:

We need to quit preaching to the choir and call, or write, or e-mail our congressman and senators THIS WEEKEND and let them know how we feel in strong, but polite terms.

The threats, intimidation, bribes, arm twisting, and coercion have just begun in order to gain reluctant votes in congress.

We have been to this rodeo before and have seen good reps cave in to the pressure.

We need to give them some backbone to just say NO!

According to a new NBC poll, only 1 in 4(25%) of americans suppor intervening inside Syria. However, from the same poll, 9 out of 10 (just over 90%) of those surveyed think that all 535 members of the congress, both house and senate should be sent to Syria immediately!

BWAHAHAHA! Thats what im talking about! God....I love this country!

You are all witness to a huge shift happening in your lifetime. Its a blessing! Its goimg to be ugly at times, real ugly, but the time for big govt and big banks is over. The power they have stolen from the people is going to be returned to the people....one way or another.

Familyguy...dennis kusinkch was one politician I actually agreed with most of the time. I liked him though because he seemed to really put the law and the people first.

However, he was complety against obamacare until.......air force one plane ride....and he magically changed his vote. Lol. Quit following him after that.

I will be calling Ryan to say "Vote No". Probably will not help but...I gotta try. Hopefully, many others will make a call.

Ryan doesn't care what his constituents want. He knows he's a sure bet to stay in the House until he decides to seek higher office. So, he will do whatever Obama and Pelosi tell him to do.

The free syrian army...the "rebels"...have posted 8 photos. One of the photos is the black alquieda in iraq flag who are part of the "rebels" currently operating inside Syria. Another one is a picture of masked members of the ree syrian army, "the rebels" marchimg thru DC while the capitol burns in the background.

Understand, this is a group the muslim in chief is siding with and about to go to war to help. I have no words really.....

Does it make more sense that Assad used CWs or does it maybe make more sense that terror groups did? Either way, does it make sense we even get involved in that fiasco?

This gets more ridiculous and more ridiculous. Watching our current president is worse than watching amatuer night at a comedy club. Its old now.

unitedfortruth, Calling the president a Muslim does nothing for the cause. And why say it when you know it is 100% not true?

Also, lets say for argument that Congress says no and Obama comes out and says OK, I will go along with the will of the American people. Somehow I bet you will be one of the first one out there calling him a weak president and bla, bla, bla.

Our nobel prize winner in chief is our WORST PRESIDENT EVER. So far over his head. His lap dog, harry reid and his senate party of "no" will flip flop and do as they are told. I hope the the house can do the opposite and not cave in. Next stop: defund the disaster that is looming called obammycare.

Daniel, the president, who is backing muslim extremists and jihadists, who bows to muslim kings, who has a muslim name, who has semt more money to extrmist muslim nations than any other president, who grew up with muslim roots, who speaks of the koran and its verses and annuciates the words and phrases exactly like a muslim, who comsiders the muslim brotherhood an ally, amd who is about to take our country to war to defend the muslim brotherhood, al quieda, and alqukeda in iraq......well, our possibly not muslim president just said a small military force will be neede inside Syria to protect all the chemical weapons....from REUTERS.

Funny he lied abour that too. Although when the pentagon...the PENTAGON...reported last year it would take 75,000 troops to secure all those weapons in Syria.

The,dude has lied about everything. Im sure he was beimg honest about being a christian though. My bad.

Also, I am hopimg he backs down. Been saying it for weeks. However, the whacko, maybe not muslim nutjob just went to a world stage and tried to plead his case and noone wanted to hear it. He completely ignored most of congress and almost every citizen of his own country and tried to find support from someone else. There is noone else when it comes to out military!!! He listens to us!!!

So, if he backs down, im worried about what the egoinfested maybe not muslim freak decides to do in exchamge

I mean, who does this guy think,he is? God, Jesus maybe, the moral authority....this is America jack! 75-90 percent of Americans dont want to intervene. As a president, elected by those same people, yyou dont turn your back on what they are telling you, go to a world stage, and try to find some other lowlife leader who wants more war and use him to make a decision to send our sons and daughters to war! We are very capable of deciding what sacrifices we and our families are willing to make for this great land....and syria by a massive margin aint one!

He should have never tried pleading his case at the G-20! He looked foolish and out of his league. Am embarrassment an all accounts.

Then, he goes in frong of the press and is asked repeatedly why he was pushimg for war when the American people dont want it and he avoided amswerimg it every single time!

Why? because if he answers that question truthfully he and most of congress get impeached the very next day, thats,why.

Republican democrat...all of em.

The position this man has us in is not a joke. Its extremely serious. Germany is telling us to back off. Russia is vowwing military and fimancial consequences if we bomb. Iran is vowwing retaliation. China is vowwing finamcial retaliation if we bomb.

This isnt some po-dunk dirt country we are about to bomb or some barely able to eat african village. Obama has major world powers WARNING us to back the____ down!

World wars have started this way my man.

China has sent warships to the coast of Syria now. The Chinese are makimg new warnimgs for Obama to back down immediately.

Things just increased a notch. Imstead of pearl harbor....anybody remember the cuban missle crisis. Sadly, obammy is no JFK.

On the morning of Aug. 5th, the rebels obammy has sided with went into 12 villages and attacked. They mutilated, killed, and beheaded the villagers including women, children, and elderly. Over 400 total. One little girl they dismembered while she was still alive...ALIVE!....using a frame saw.

I guess obammy has the United States of America on their team.
