Well I'm glad that it seems we can all finally agree now that the rebels are responsible for the chemical attacks.

this region has been fighting for a thousand years, and will fight for a thousand more. if they want to kill each other, then let them.  what the president is talking about, will not do any good. if you want to drop some bombs, drop a nuke, then start over.

Syrian rebels are still citizens of Syria. Countless innocent Syrians have died in bombings. He's killed over a million people. There's tons of evidence Assad has killed his own people. You are literally so dumb. I wasnt arguing that Assad did or didn't use chemical weapons. My argument was against him not being a dictator killing his own people. Which he has been. Try reading and comprehension instead of being a loser and believing a group of rich old men in a club rule the world.

How does believing that rich old men ruling the world(which is true)make him a loser?

Let's get real GOP/TP/Democratic supporters.

Romney was chomping at the bit less than a year ago to attack Iran on even less credible intelligence data than we currently have for Syria.

Without a doubt, Romney would have already been bombing with the GOP Congress cheering him on every step of the way.

This debacle only proves President Obama is a slave to his corporate masters on Wall Street (most of whom should have been in jail years ago), just like the GOP has been for generations now.

The American voter deserves better than two political parties that support the national interests of Saudi Arabia and Israel before those of the American people.

How about using our national resources to rebuild our failing infrastructure, improving public schools and putting Americans back to work at a living wage instead of constantly war mongering?

It is way past time for Americans to start voting for their own best interests and not against them.

Whole heartly agree with you. Sadly both parties use small issues to divide which stops actual positive change

Americans are no longer interested in policing the world, Mr. Obama

However Congress votes on Syrian intervention, the White House will have problems escaping the fallout

 

 

The White House finds itself in a political no-man's-land. Winning a vote in Congress will mean squandering political capital and twisting Democratic arms – all in pursuit of a military strategy that will, by the White House's own admission, do little to stop the bloodletting in Syria. Lose the vote and risk becoming a weakened lame duck three years before Obama's second term is up. Of course, Obama could ignore Congress, but then he risks entering into impeachment territory.

 

Yet, for all the short-term political fallout, the apparent train wreck on Syria might be the best thing to happen in American politics in a long time.

 

Since 11 September 2001, armchair generals (inside and outside government) have planned one military engagement after another and confidently predicted success – and then dodged accountability after repeated failures. The result has been quagmire after quagmire, trillions of dollars in costs and tens of thousands of dead and maimed Americans.

 

Those chickens have come home to roost. No matter how defensible the plan for military action in Syria might be; no matter how strong the impulse to punish the use of long-banned weapons; no matter how many assertions of limited engagement are made, Americans and their representatives in Congress appear finally resistant to buying the war-makers' tonic (some might say 10 years too late).

 

The desire of America's foreign policy elite to continue to demand that the US remain the indispensable nation and the world's policeman has come face to face with a public tired of war and tired of foreign policy failure. And the American people look poised to win this round.

 A possible way out of this political nightmare for the Obama administration?

 

 

"Syria welcomes the Russian proposal out of concern for the lives of the Syrian people, the security of our country and because it believes in the wisdom of the Russian leadership that seeks to avert American aggression against our people," al-Moallem said during a visit to Moscow, where he held talks with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov.

 

However, al-Moallem, would not give any further details in his brief statement and didn't take any questions from reporters.

 

Moallem's statement came a few hours after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Assad could resolve the crisis surrounding the alleged use of chemical weapons by his forces by surrendering control of "every single bit" of his arsenal to the international community by the end of the week.

 

Also Monday, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged Syria to immediately agree to transfer chemical weapons and chemical precursors to a safe place within the country for international destruction.

 

Ban said he will also propose to the Security Council that it unite and demand an immediate chemical weapons transfer should U.N. inspectors conclude that such weapons were used in an attack Aug. 21 in a suburb of Damascus.

 

Al-Moallem and Lavrov didn't make any immediate reference to Kerry's statement when they spoke to the media after their talks, but a few hours later Lavrov went before cameras to say that Moscow would urge Syria to quickly place its chemical weapons under international control and then dismantle it.
