The military revolt against the Obama administration’s plan to launch a potentially disastrous attack on Syria is gathering pace, with both top brass and regular servicemembers expressing their vehement opposition to the United States becoming entangled in the conflict.

Now this is a norm among politicians especially the left leaners. Ignore the Military experts and just do what we say to do.

At least Bush had the justification of the 9-11 attack on Americans on US soil.

There is nothing remotely close to a justification for this one.

Why can't Obama use diplomacy?

HAHAHAHA. Never, ever use Obama and diplomacy in the same sentence.

I always found you to be very serious. I didn't think you had a sense of humor until now!!!!

Yeah that was my joke for the day.

At least Carter was willing to try diplomacy. So have all the others but not Obama.

Diplomacy in theory is a good idea. I've yet to see a diplomatic resolution that didn't involve promising millions of taxpayer dollars to rogue regimes to keep them "happy." If taxpayer dollars are to be spent, i'd rather them be spent on decimating rogue nations' weapon depots, airfields, military installations, and government buildings. THAT....in my view...has much more effectiveness than kowtowing and throwing dollars at a country who has no respect for us.

Default The Military is AGAINST a Syrian strike - maybe Obama, Kerry and Congress should go fight with Al Qaeda THEMSELVES

Just like Bush, Cheney, and Rove did.

Kerry looked awful yesterday - looks like he does not believe his words as she says them.

I think Obama has proven that he doesn't know what diplomacy is (along with knowing protocol). One can't practice what one doesn't know.

Was that a Freudian slip??

Yeah, Susan Rice didn't look to good when she was making the rounds talking about a video.
