if shit does hit the fan and they do send a "support group" into syria, after the Chinese and Russians start winning the war there is no question in my mind that obie would send out a half dozen and annihilate everyone who opposes us.

So what if Russia and China are giving Syria a missle shield! To the best of my knowledge we have fighters and bombers that can not be seen.

So we send in missiles and blow up some strategic targets.
I guess Russia and China will have to send a volley of missiles to strategic targets in the US.

Yup. I'm pretty sure that even Immortals aren't missile proof.

Doomsday clock is due for an update....

Just pointing out that a missile shield to protect Syria is nothing more than a dare. We're fucked if we launch even if we win.

We should keep clear of those too.
Unless it is a direct strike on American people we should stay away. Or blow them up and blame Syria.

If it comes to nukes it WILL be nuclear holocaust. The US' nuclear arsenal is nothing to joke about and I know with certainty that Russia and China also have impressive arsenals.

I'll make it easy for you. Go to this website, type your zip code, and "send an email" to your representative. It only has to be a concise 1 sentence email to have your voice heard.

A few hours later and I already got a response from my congressman acknowledging my opposition.

If we do drone strikes or missle attacks on Syria, we will just have to give them a couple hundred billion dollars to rebuild what we destroyed.
So save hundreds of billions of dollars and worry about your own damn countrys problems.

I e-mailed my congressman and this is basically what I relayed to him that we need to concentrate on our own countries issues and worry about fixing those instead of spending billions policing another country that doesn't like us nor want us around anyway.

My thoughts are that we being a super power there is a responsibility to police the bad guys and keep them in line. I don't think it should be that way but it is. The United States should be paid for policing the globe and keeping the bad guys under control.

I honestly don't think we'll ever have another world war in the same manner that we think of WWI and WW2. I just hope someone does something to punish those bastards as soon as possible.
The UN is a bunch of do nothing wennies.
As far as punishing the ones responsibily, hell ya. We just need to be sure to hit the right ones. The rebels have claimed they were the ones responsibly and it was by accident that it happened.
This administration says it was the other guy. If they hit Syria then that means we are helping the terrorists.
I'd say we need to send a message that the use of chemical weapons are not going to be tolerated by anybody.

I pretty much agree with this.

I'm not a big fan of getting involved in Syria's civil war, but I think it would be good to find out who has the chemical weapons and make sure they aren't used again.
