It cost 1.5 million dollars for each tomahawk missile fired,apparently we can afford it while our vets who served this country with courage and honor have to wait for their urgent needs to be met,people to be hired to help process the thousands of claims due to budget constraints.

The American people have to hold fund raisers to help our vets with housing and medical care. Yet these fools want to drain our wealth even more to help those who hate us and pray for our death and destruction every day

They are about to find out that we the American people will not tolerate our wealth being wasted and the best of our young people being killed and or maimed for life to aid our enemies

And another thing That prune face s.o.b.Kerry says "We know who the good guys are in Syria" Yet he can't tell us who they are or name names.

He can't bring a single one of them forward or explain to the American people just what their posistion is and what their intentions are after Assad is gone

Well there's an excellent reason for that...... Because his so called freedom fighters are no better,no more humane or any different than Assad Kerry is full of B.S.and will say anything.....ask the swift boat men who served with him.

I wouldn't trust either side in this mess with a bag of dog s.h.i.t. even if they were all wearing muzzles.

If we bomb or strike Syria the civilian population will pay a terrible price Bombing will green light Assad and the so called freedom fighters to murder countless civilian then both sides will say "Look,look at what those terrible Americans did!

I don't consider Al qaeda,Hezbollah or militant islam to be anything but what they've shown the world they are and it's certainly not freedom fighters !

When Biden was a senator he said that if Bush was to invade Iraq WITHOUT Congressional approval that he "Biden" would lead the charge to impeach Bush, I wonder if he still maintains those thoughts if Obama invades Syria with approval???

unitedforlies George W. Bush allowed Bin Laden's entire family to leave the country after the attacks in NY and you're saying that the current president is consorting with and aiding Muslim extremists? That's rich. If this was Bush or any other Republican warmongering president you and the rest of your sort would be all for invading Syra.You're only against it because of the current president.

And all this time I was under the impression we would be on the side of the villagers.

Nope, now we arm, fimamce, and side with the rebels.

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.

Very interesting to see that most of Congress & the American public is agreeing with & falling in line behind our good friends & allies, the Russians & Chinese. Just saying . . . .

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
