Red Line has been crossed on a couple occasions and now the administration seems to be laying the groundwork for........?

What is the proper response in your opinion?

apologizing for our arrogance and butting in on their affairs.   War is not the answer we just just send ourextreme  liberals over there to explain  why what they are doing is bad because you know war is not the answer.... to saving innocent people from horrible  chemical warfare deaths

Stay the fug out unless the United States is intent on getting into yet another regional conflict that will cost trillions of dollars we don't have, cost thousands of lives of American soldiers for no apparent reason, accomplish very little in the long run and further denigrate the reputation of the country while creating yet another economy-killer.

The whole thing smells fishy to me.

To the rest of the worlds populations, it will seem that we are choosing sides in a muslim conflict. Public perception will cost us deeply in this scenario. its because of the types of engagements that we be branded the great satan. there is nothing to gain in this. Mainly, because we've stayed nuetral for far too long. And not just us. the rest of the world has allowed this to escalate to these depths. Clearly a no win for all those effected. And those who will be effected. My hands are up in the air on this one. But my gut says no.

I'm not sure why, with all the bitching from every corner of the planet about the US "interfering" in the middle east, we would get involved in this at all.

 

I get the humanitarian issues, but how the fug is bombing them going to aid in that???

What does a president do when he gets up in front of the world and basically draws a line in the sand, and then it is crossed at least a couple of times? Should never have made the original speech?

I agree with a lot of what's being said.

 

Also, how many civilians died because we attacked Iraq? Playing the moral card is laughable.

He never should have said it. Or he could let the UN security council vote and when they vote no he can just play along.

Why would Assad use chem weapons when he's winning?  Why invite UN inspectors and then shoot at them?
