  •  Do you have some evidence for this? What would (0+ / 0-)

    you do in response to gas attacks on civilians?

    •  Are the American civilians? (12+ / 0-)

      If not, it's not my problem.  Let the UN do something.

    •  hooper, do you have any evidence (5+ / 0-)

      relating to who did the gas attacks. It is probably likely that it was done by someone who hoped to profit from this terrorism.

      It seems to me that the rebels or their supporters would be the biggest beneficiary of such attacks. But, it would be nice if we remembered all lies and spin that led to prior wars before we approved the killings of thousands of children by yet even more violent acts.

      What I would suggest is having a vote in Syria. But it seems that no rebel dares to oppose Assad at the polls.

      War is costly. Peace is priceless!

    •  You don't throw random bombs at random targets (7+ / 0-)

      based on random bits of "intelligence" coming from liars with agendas of their on on both sides of the ocean, that's for sure.

      Anyway, the American Department of Defense should be used to, ummmmm, defend the United States of America. Retaliations, feel-good quasi-humanitarian efforts, and blatant saber-rattling and warmongering where our country is not under attack are completely, totally unacceptable. It is not our country's place to make Obama feel like a tough guy or make the CEO of Raytheon even richer.

    •  Are the people who buried the dead... (2+ / 0-)

      ... wearing hazmat suits?

      If the chemicals are so deadly, that means the bodies of the dead are contaminated and should never be approached by anyone who is not decked out in a full hazmat suit, head to toe, including the huge helmet that keeps the cleaners and grave diggers from breathing the air where the dead were allegedly poisoned.

      No hazmat suits = most likely no poison gas (so death came from some other means).

      WHO sold the chemical weapons to these people and WHY???

      Cui bono???

      [Oh, and my response would be to let the UN handle it.  It's none of our fucking business.  We have people here in our own country who need help, infrastructures to maintain or build that have gone untended for over a decade, people to employ to keep us from completely turning into a third world country which we are rapidly becoming because we're spending money on illegal and unconstitutional wars, not on our people or our country.]
