Mr. President, you need to bannish all those women who always avocate going to war...Susan Rice for example. She and Sec. Clinton both made public staments about war actions against Lybia. Now tell me, what does that country looks like now? The people in your Administration are there to serve themselves and not you President Obama. Please, Please develope some backbone before it's too late and your Presidency becomes the laughing stock for all time.

President Obama, I have been one of your strongest supporters, defending you on every occasion. I can no longer support you with your action against Syria. I agree with SS-Oberstgruppenfuhe r on one point and one only. You have stacked your Admin. with "dimwits and Mediocre Advisers" who knows nothing of fgn policy. They make policy decisions without consulting with you as did Sec. Kerry with his press conference where all but said we would bomb Syria.

Furthermore, there will be an attack on Syria; that will be after G-20 (be sure). This hand-solo attack will hurt US intl relations and Wiki's and Snowden will be rightous. Distrust over the US is not a good balance on thw world's equilibrium.

No need to call "names". History will judge as Bush is being judged. Fact is, you can not go around bombing everyone whom is not your buddy. But don't look at the short range. The US is preparing itself as a controller for the mid and possibly long term future. World is under heavy turmoil since 2001 and the world is not able to output enough comfort to ease desires and needs. It looks so certain how near a WWIII is and the US has to prepare but it just might be loosing credibility. Best not to loose it with Syria. Future is worst.

The Nobel Peace Prize has become a joke. US President Obama, as the nation's first black president, is threatening to attack Syria and rain even more terror down on the common and everyday people. He reminds me of former President Andrew Jackson, who talked smoothly, as he continually punished the North American Indians.

Ronald Reagan was the "Great Communicator" - Bozo Obama is the "Great Deceiver" - He is skilled at lying and his stupid followers do not realize they have been duped. The worst president in the history of America, and he has done more damage to this country than any enemy, foreign or domestic.

Obama has boxed himself, and the entire foreign policy of the United States, into a corner by his stupidity. He, perhaps unknowingly, fell into the trap set by the arch-criminal Jew, Netanyahu, when he espoused his buffoonish rhetoric about some imaginary "red line"! Once Obama uttered those ridiculous words, the die was cast, the trap was sprung. This was pure amateurism on Obama's part, and the consequences of such foolishness will be anything but trivial. Obama has surrounded himself with too many dimwits and mediocre advisors. The fiasco that we see now is the direct result of that decision.

Hey Obomber, don't you know that in the real world there is no such thing as limited military action because for every action there is a reaction so it expands and expands and expands until the whole middle east is ablaze then the whole world is ablaze.

Obama talks of limited operations in Syria. Now why does not Obama have a limited operatio himself. Perhaps a we can start with a Brain transplant and go on from there. Otherwise the world will be in serious trouble.
