I think that disarmament should be a top priority but not the way the US is using it as a tool for their "Bloody Interests" FSA and the other terrorists have proven that they cannot be trusted to create a society that will work, they are weak, the extremest groups will control them.

Most Americans now recognize a scam when they see one, that will damage our economy, and be used as a pretext to further take away our rights and freedoms, and invade our privacy. And this war has scam written all over it in capital letters.

Obama will never be impeached because we would then be left with Biden, who is a complete buffoon. I do not believe that in America an elected official will ever do what he swore to do while campaigning. Thank God opposition is building. I do believe that Syrian president ordered the chemical attacks, however it's not for the US to attack them over it. Russia and China will always veto whenever they can, so what is the point of the UN anyway. I just hope that we can extricate ourself from the middle east entirely. I believe that would make EVERYON

I still think that the US won't undertake any serious actions with regards to Syria. It'll be extremely consequential for them. Especially, when all their allies have backed off. The congress facing midterms and should appeal to their constituencies which overwhelmingly against intervention. May be all this is just a show for the public to rehabilitate Obama's image since he is on his own?

How about a campaign to recall the so called "noble peace prize" given to Obama. Either give every terrorist dictator such as Saddam, George Bush, Chaney, Milosevic and their likes a prize and call it what it should be " a Green Light for Genocide prize".

DoD contractors are slobbering at the bit for us to use their billion dollars weapons of mass destruction so they'll get the go ahead to make more. Just like Iraq, this is nothing more than farse to keep the military industrial complex afloat. Peace is not good for business.

Is The United States Going To Go To War With Syria Over A Natural Gas Pipeline?
Could it be because Qatar is the largest exporter of liquid natural gas in the world and Assad won’t let them build a natural gas pipeline through Syria? Qatar wants to install a puppet regime in Syria that will allow them to build a pipeline which will enable them to sell lots of natural gas to EU. Why is Saudi Arabia spending huge amounts of money to help the rebels?
Well, it turns out that Saudi Arabia intends to install their own puppet government in Syria which will allow the Saudis to control the flow of energy through the region.
