Obummer is out of his mind, and if Congress aproves this, they have sold out to the people who voted for them. If Obummer choses to leave Congress out of the lopp and attack Syria without their approval, he needs to be charged with treason.

Obama has lost the respect of sane world leaders and is not fit for the role of US president, The once assumed great black hope for the US is nothing but a great black hole in the cosmos devoid of everything.

I'm starting to wonder if Obama really is dragging this all out so he doesn't actually hurt Assad in any way. All this talk about limited strikes, intimating exactly what they are to be against etc. seem designed to let Assad move his forces to safety and give the US the propaganda victory of bombing empty buildings while not actually antagonizing the Syrians enough to retaliate. I dare say that Obama knows exactly that the 'rebels' did it, but is stuck in this dance cause now the US cannot back down.
Might be wishful thinking of course, and Obama really is mad enough to provoke the Syrians into a wider war with all.

"limited" military action against syria for what? to continue your filthy hegemony in middle east? or to weaken syria so that Is Israel can invade syria and kill palestinaens?

Indirectly it was Obama himself who ordered the use of chemical weapons in Syria because all logic and the available evidence points to the fact that it was the US supported rebels who used chemical weapons in Syria and not the Syrian Govt. . In this regard it is Obama himself and the US who needs a short swift military shock and not the Syrian Govt.
Obama is barking out of control on a dangerous rhetoric limb and needs to climb down

The use of military force must be granted by Congress. If King Barack proceeds without approval he should be impeached and immediately removed from office. Can you imagine a non-black and republican president doing this and getting a free pass?
