    All war is evil  and a product of nefarious M.I.C. intentions.  Therefore everything is a conspiracy -- and even if we have to dig up an outdated news report to bolster our case, we will do so and hope no one catches it.

    I'm with you on the skepticism aspect.  We need local sources' confirmation--not just 'unnamed defense/intelligence' sources.

      As someone else said, given the history of bogus claims for war by the US, there is no way many folks will beleive the US if we act premptively and stop Assad.  Before the US can act, Assad has to actually do it...if Obama is concerned with people actually believing it was justified.

      Like I said, I am very skeptical.  But assuming for the moment it's real, and that Obama could actually prevent it...I would hope that he would and accept the disbelief and scorn that will come his way and stop it.  And to be clear, that disbelief and scorn would be coming from me as well.

      This is why a nation should never lie its way into war. Cause once they do, they can never be trusted, even when the threat is real.
