  •  I support intervention, but we must have a debate (4+ / 0-)

    There is no reason at all why we can't.

    •  I am willing to support (5+ / 0-)

      The winning course argued for by our Congress after they ALL know what they need to know to make their informed vote.

      This baloney where only certain members know certain things and others know nothing is manipulation.

      If the UK can argue this out certainly we can.

      I am less certain that military intervention will be of a great benefit.  Hope I'm wrong if that is what happens anyhow.

      And I need votes and statements of our leaders on the record.

        Iraq, anyone?
        And that was a real Congress, unlike the farce that passes for today's Congress.

        I still want to go to the Congress before any action is taken, but I won't mistake any vote they take as "informed" or as even in "good faith".  But it should be done, nonetheless.

          It's not up to you or me or anyone else to give a damn about whether or not those people are competent. They are the Congress we have and it is their job to make a vote on something like this.

          It's not up to you or me to "trust that they can do their job". Let me repeat: THAT IS THEIR JOB.

           

          This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".

    •  If you support bombing, don't be euphemistic. (4+ / 0-)

      You want to turn human beings into jelly with high explosives.  You want to pepper their flesh with shrapnel.

      You want to cause overpressure that will rupture their lungs and leave them to drown in their own blood.

      "Intervention".

      So antiseptic as way to say "I want to see a few hundred bodies hid the ground so we can feel like we 'did something' ".

      1) Bomb Syria 2)???????????? 3) Lives saved!!!!!!
