    context. I look forward to your next diaries on the conflict. This should be required reading material for anyone commenting on the Syria situation, it definitely changed the way I see things. Besides painting a much clearer picture of what is actually happening than the media has, this also changes my view on the legality of Obama engaging without Congressional approval. While the Iraq war itself was illegal, we are still involved there and it is in our best interest to try to stop any destabilization in Iraq caused by the Syria conflicts. I'm not so sure bombing Assad's forces is the right strategy but I'm sure I know way less about the logistics than Secretary Hagel and the President. This does not turn me into a cheerleader for airstrikes but it does change my attitude on the legality with respect to the U.S. Constitution.

    Let's not let 2014 be anything like 2010. Republicans only win when we stay home!
