@ Crystal Starheart: "Obamas' threats are not just against Syria, but against all who would oppose his regime, just like Bush. Congressmembers can also be targeted by this criminal corporate/government regime."

It is better to oppose a rogue regime and die with honor than to be a cowardly turncoat.

What a waste you are in the White House BO! Never thought you'd behave like this & sell out your own people by applying the double standards you said you abhorred during your campaign for president. The deepest shame is yours for selling out people who trusted and believed in you. Look at your own girls & then see the faces of the children of Syria... If you strike Syria, you will reap the bitterest of rewards! No real Man from Africa would do such a thing in this day and age! The world is aghast at your cold & calculating actions, all based on presumptions.. this when dialogue's door to peace ALWAYS remains open!

America funds the chaos so they can take control over resources and the movement of them with military force. I'm very sure she supplied the chemicals. Lady liberty must be so ashamed another country run by thugs.

Why, so he can blame Congress in the future, for WW3?

We didn't not end any war in Iraq. Bombs are going off daily and people are still dying. The same situation exists in Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc. etc. We should stay out of Syria and stop being the world's police man.

Attack to Syria - the help to Al-Qaeda. The USA help Al-Qaeda which blew up buildings in New York. Or Al-Qaeda didn't blow up the houses in New York?

  


Mister Putin won't betray Syria, whatever offer to him would be made by the West and the USA.

Obama does not have any evidence or credibility that Mr Assad used chemical weapons on the contrary the USA backed cannibal terrorist rebels were caught with them recently in Turkey on their way to the Syrian boarder. The UN inspectors are the only ones who can determine whether chemical weapons were used and possibly who used them thus any claims by Obama are simply hot air and no substance whatsoever. Give peace a chance and Patience is a virtue.

There are more than enough psychopaths in the US Congress that will give Obama the approval that is required. These congressional psychopaths have close ties to both the arms industry and big oil.

Obama is going to rain fire and terror from the sky, while the world is still waiting for proof that the Assad government was responsible for the chemical attacks.

  

Obamas' threats are not just against Syria, but against all who would oppose his regime, just like Bush. Congressmembers can also be targeted by this criminal corporate/government regime.

Anyone else have a creepy feeling that if Obama can't get Approval that a False Flag Terrorist attack would Justify it?

  

Yes, the USA is not beyond trying a false flag accusing Syrians. Hopefully, this time enough people will question the event relentlessly, like the Boston Massacre was questioned and uncovered. Their lies are now exposed tothe world.
