    There need to be consequences as to who did this criminal act.

    I am tired of the lies. Kerry says they know, but the evidence is a secret and they can't tell. We are not 3rd graders. Don't lie to us.

    As chrissy has already said, the report confirms the use of sarin, but not the source. That's why an attack by our side would be one of the biggest mistakes ever. As saywhat has said on many an occasion, the Israeli influence on our government is what is pushing this agenda. If they are so hot for an attack, let them use their own men and equipment.
    With the aid of the Arab states, who by the way are crying for something be done but refuse to commit their forces, they could probably have this wrapped up in about ten years or so.
    US, stay the hell out of it.

    Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture.

    The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?" " This goes for every single government/ent ity in this entire world without exception. There may be exceptional individuals, but they become part of a system that is an almost sentient ent ity.

    And it holds onto power like a living creature holds onto life. This is my opinion and i believe orwell new this also. "You are thinking," he said, "that my face is old and tired. You are thinking that I talk of power, and yet I am not even able to prevent the decay of my own body.

    Can you not understand, Winston, that the individual is only a cell? The weariness of the cell is the vigor of the organism. Do you die when you cut your finger-nails?"

    Good morning folks.
    and yes@bobcat what we need to do is 'stay the hell out'. S.Arabia along with Israel is largely responsible for this mess and its time that we learn to ward of pressure from such 'allies'.

    apart from these truble makers ther is pressure from Defense contractors like Raytheon,Boeing, Grumman etc who stand to make millions from any strike on Syria in terms of replacement of armament expanded.
    I need hardly mention Genie Energy Intl and likes of Haliburton , Carlyle Group
    Sheldons and Koch Bros that we have.

    Pr.Obama has an uphill task in sustaining resistance to the neocon pressure in keeping us out of Syria.

    I see you have not headed Orwell's wrnings @ saywhat, Obama IS and has been driven to get his hands on Syria. I'm surprised you don't see this.

    Obama is resisting the neocon call. He is not nearly as naïve as some simpletons seem to think.

      So right Samantha
      The man is trying to keep our warriors out of another war. The only people clamoring for involvement are those who have no stake in this, such as they or any of their loved ones, and those that stand to profit from it.

    President Obama has been the main voice of reason in this debacle. While everyone else has been screaming for us to get more involved, aka McLain and Graham et al, our president has been the one trying to handle this diplomatically and that has led him to be labeled as weak. On the contrary, violence initiated from another quarter will do nothing more than inflame the already inflamed feelings toward us.
    I repeat, Stay the hell out of it.

      I am very tired of people who would champion our kids and treasure to fight this war. I agree with Rawr and others; we need to stay out of Syria.
      Trying to 'guilt trip' us isn't going to work. For those who have no stake in it, shut the hell up.
      Our military is stretched too thin as it is.
