Each and every person that says we need to attack Syria, need to be round up, trained quickly in a day, or two. Then taken to Syria, to get rid of the Chemical Weapons.


Sound like a good plan?

I was saying the same thing about Iraq and Afganistan. Finally people are coming around to my way of thinking.

I'll pay extra taxes this year to ensure ALL 537 idiots in D.C. are on the front lines in Syria....

Not even a 1/3rd of those 537 idiots are not foolish enough to go into Syria, now. Why force them against their will.


These other people have graciously volunteered, to save humanity.

Well I suppose we could just pretend there isn't a problem with chemical weapons. Kind of like ignoring Al Quaeda until they brought the fight to our doorstep. I'm not saying an invasion of Syria is the answer, but the United States can't go into isolation and pretend that all will be well. Sooner or later problems always find their way to us, might as well be proactive and engage the issues and not wait for another 9/11 to wake up and take action.

Then I guess you'd support being 'proactive' in North Korea too, eh? After all, they've starved hundreds of thousands of their own people to death and they have nukes.

Personally, I'm a devout non-interventionist, I believe we only need make sure we have what's needed to defend ourselves and make it known to the world that if any country attempts to make their problems our problems they will be dealt with severely.

I agree. I also think people need to learn the difference between non-interventionist and isolationist. I can already predict the replies calling you an isolationist.

All the clues were there to stop 9/11/01. The politically Correct world refused to look right at it.
Our false sense of security, is the very government you want to give more and more power to, all in the name of protecting you.


If they would do the job we ask of them and pay them well to do, they would have seen these guys are not even suppose to be in the USA, on expired VISAs. they didn't feel like enforcing our strict(laugh) immigration laws made in 1986. They have lost how many people here on expired visas? What about all the people they don't even know are here, by walking or driving across a desert, or wading across a river???

Your government has failed you and you want to give them more power and more money, to get the same results?

I was one of the ignorant dumbasses who supported invading Iraq, and I agree with you on this (even as oversimplified as you made it sound)

If every American knew what it was to be a civilan in harms way of these conflicts, we would be a bit more insightful with our foreign policy.

Hell, I'd be happy if people would learn the difference between defense and offense.
