As much as something needs doing in Syria, the problem is our support is two years too late. Had we gotten involved before the AQ and Muslim Brotherhood backed factions took the lead in the armed conflict against Assad, we could have supported the rebels and possibly developed a new ally in the Middle East. However, at the time we were still mired in both Iraq and Afghanistan, and could not come up with a legitimate response to calls for help.
Now we have to look and see what is going on. Some in congress are calling for arming the rebels. The problem is which group of rebels do we support? The original “moderate” ones have either left the country or been supplanted (and possibly killed) by the AQ and MB backed groups. So no matter what happens with the outcome, we will not have a friendly power in Syria.
100% correct, Gmh. There are no good guys in that fight. Let them kill each other however they wish to kill each other for as long as they want to kill each other. Unfortunately it may be true that the more of them that are dead, the better. And we have NO business getting involved in any way.
For once, I agree!!
Hi high! FYI…. we have agreed on a few things lately. If we knew one another personally, we might find that happens more frequently than you may expect.
Have a nice day, high!
@MustGO….I bet you call yourself a Christian. Such anger, hate and cynicism…You really sound Tormented, My heart goes out to you, I can’t imagine being around you in person. Someone must have really hurt you in life because there’s no way a person could be so cruel concerning another human being unless they themselves were abused!! I’ll be praying that God would grant you true peace and joy. Remember the Joy of the Lord is your Strength!!
yee… we agree religiously, but not politcally. The stone cold truth is that evil exists in this world. There’s lots of it going on in many more places than just Syria. And there isn’t any way for America to be the defender of every single innocent person out there. If you read my post again, I prefaced the part you find objectionable with “unfortunately” because I mean that. The reality is that there are just too damned many bad guys in Syria on both sides that it makes it impossible to sort out the scant few good ones. And when evil ones are killing evil ones, let them have at it forever until they’re all gone, and pray that as many innocent and good ones as possible escape the carnage. But it’s not worth one American life or one red cent.
Have a nice day, and peace in Christ!
@MustGo… I took a chance responding to your comment. Judging from past comments I understand fully why people don’t respond to your posts. When you start showing a modicum of respect for the office of the President, just maybe and I mean maybe your views would be taken more seriously! Then again you probably enjoy just seeing and reading your comments on such a serious forum. It doesn’t matter because I’ll do my very best never to respond to your comments again!!!!
Yee… not sure what bug climbed up your butt about what I said in my posts on this matter, but whatever it is, you should see a doctor about it. Nothing I wrote in the posts you replied to mentioned Obozo a single time. Or what a failure he is. He is irrelevant to the point at hand. Seemingly, you do not like the cold hard truth about Syria. That’s your issue, not mine.
Nice chatting, yee. Have a nice day!

Sounds like someone needs a hug! The hate is so thick in here you could cut it with a knife. Don’t let ’em get to you. Romans: “Vengeance is mine; Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”…..So instead of sending in cruise missiles let’s send food & medicine to the refugees.
Food and medicine…… why didn’t Obozo think of that? Oh, that’s right. That wasn’t part of his petulant “red line” threat.
I think you should sniff a little Sarin and let us know what it feels like. You can also tell us what a child suffered before they died.
Ohhhh dirtnappy…. get off your self-righteous horse and deal with reality. Children are abused in multitudes of ways all over this earth. That’s horrible, of course. But it does not mean that we Americans must be the world’s policeman every time some atrocity occurs. How come you weren’t in tizzy over the fact that 100,000 + died at the hands of bombs and AK-47s? How come all of a sudden that 1400 die at the hands of a chemical weapon, that WE DO NOT KNOW WHO SET IT OFF FOR SURE, now all of a sudden you are indignant? You don’t give a damn about dead children, you insufferable, self-righteous bore. You only care now that Obozo has put himself into a box with campaign rhetoric about a “red line” and now looks like a complete incompetent boob over the whole thing because he cannot get involved to back up his foolish, petulant statements. That’s all you give a damn about… your messiah revealing what a fraud he is.
Go back to your mommy’s basement. Your friends are waiting for you to rejoin your Call of Duty game.
Have a nice evening, dirtnappy!

A Republican, in a wheelchair, entered a
restaurant one afternoon and asked the waitress for a cup of coffee. The
Republican looked across the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus sitting over
The waitress nodded “yes,” so the Republican requested
that she give Jesus a cup of coffee, on him.
The next patron to come in
was a Libertarian, with a hunched back. He shuffled over to a booth, painfully
sat down, and asked the waitress for a cup of hot tea. He also glanced across
the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus, over there?”
nodded, so the Libertarian asked her to give Jesus a cup of hot tea, “My treat.”
The third patron to come into the restaurant was a Democrat on crutches.
He hobbled over to a booth, sat down, and hollered, “Hey there honey! How’s
about getting me a cold mug of Miller Light” He too looked across the restaurant
and asked, “Isn’t that God’s boy over there?”
The waitress nodded, so
the Democrat directed her to give Jesus a cold beer.
“On my bill,” he said
As Jesus got up to leave, he passed by the Republican, touched
him, and said, “For your kindness, you are healed.” The Republican felt the
strength come back into his legs, got up, and began to praise the Lord.

The Democrat jumped up and yelled, “Don’t touch
me!……. I’m on disability.”

“The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.” ― Mark Twain
And now…. The REAL Cartoon Of The Day!
Once again, the contrast of Putin vs. Obozo on the Syrian issue demonstrates to the world that Obozo is an impotent, weak-kneed fool. The community organizer and thug-in-chief is a geopolitical novice that the whole world is laughing at now.
“The Middle East is obviously an issue that has plagued the region for centuries.” –Tampa, Fla., Jan. 28, 2010 — Baroke WhoIsInsane Obozo showing the world yet again what an idiot he is.
There you go! You have sane moments and then you revert to hogwash! Diplomacy is not foot kissing! Grow up!
That’s why you can never trust Bozo the Infantile. He loves to label people idiots and morons but only offers copied cartoons and quotes. He likes to complain that this website is a sewer but spends way too much time on it even for a sewer rat like him.
You hit the nail right on the head billp. He and his ass kissing followers are all sewer rats.
high… Putin has been playing Obozo for the fool on this Syria matter for quite some time. Now Obozo is subservient to him for potentially bailing his a$$ out of that stupid “red line” threat that Obozo should never have made. Now he looks weak and impotent to the rest of the world. That’s not something I want in America’s president, even if I hate him as president. We can fight amongst ourselves like family, but to the rest of the world, we should be one and strong. Obozo is destroying a long built American tradition of leadership globally. That pisses me off significantly.
Have a nice day, high!
You’ve got to be shitting me. You’ve got the stones to say “to the rest of the world we should be one and strong” You f…king hypocrite, You and your sick minded ilk have done nothing but try to destroy a Presidency since Obama took office. You not only attack the man and everything he says or does, but you go after his family as well. You are a coward, hiding behind the anonymity of the internet. And what effect do you suppose all of your cheap shots at the President are doing to help present the one and strong image. You and your followers are nothing but losers.
Robbie…. there’s a difference between foreign policy and domestic policy. Unfortunately for America, he’s a complete failure at both. Unless of course you’re in the Muzzy Bro’hood, in which case you like him. It’s just that with foreign policy, he destroys our standing in the world because he is a petulant amature that doesn’t know when to keep his fetid pie hole shut. What could you expect from a guy who’s main accomplishment in life was as leader of the Choom Gang and then community agitator and ACORN thug while in Chicago? He’s in over his head, and this Syria situation only makes that more obvious.
“It was also interesting to see that political interaction in Europe is not that different from the United States Senate. There’s a lot of — I don’t know what the term is in Austrian — wheeling and dealing — and, you know, people are pursuing their interests, and everybody has their own particular issues and their own particular politics.” Baroke WhoIsInsane Obozo
speaking to an Austrian audience in 2009 and having no clue that they do not speak “Austrian” or that it’s not even a language. Proof that he’s a complete idiot.
We will outlast you. We, being the sane majority of Americans,will be here long after you sicko right wingers have faded into history. You and the Republican party extremists will be nothing more than a footnote. Don’t believe for a minute that the Republican party will survive this period of non-governance. It won’t. It’s not a question of if you all will fail, but rather, when.Speaking of keeping one’s fetid pie hole shut, You could begin that anytime, and make many people happy.
The battle is just beginning, Robbie. Only about 20% of Americans are lefist freaks like you and your messiah, Obozo. The rest of us who have remained silent for too long are waking up. We shall see, won’t we?
Have a nice day!

Obozo showing the world yet again what an idiot he is.
You are surely funny, bozo. Not only is your percentage estimate way, way off, but when the hell were you and your crowd ever”silent for too long”. and you’re right, we will see in 2014, and then we’ll watch the sequel in 2016, starring Hillary Clinton.
yep, all that will be left are you democRATS …and the cockroaches.. shalom aleichem ……..calm down! your eyes are bleeding…..
Robert you have hit the nail on the head. Bozo the Infantile doesn’t use his name when he writes his immature and illogical comments. His spelling needs work too, the word he means is amateur not “amature” but President Obama is the idiot according to Bozo.
You know what? First, I resent you or anyone calling the President of the USA Obozo!! Have some respect for the office! I don’t consider anyone weak if they avoid an unneccessary war! I agree about the “red line” but Pride goeth before a fall and I would hope that everyone involved has enough courage to back down when a war is at stake! I’m not interested in being a global leader, just a peaceful leader! You want to flex your muscles, go ahead, but times are changing!
Hi high! I think you’re misreading what I am typing. I’m not happy that Obzoo has put himself into a box of his own making with the idle “red line” threat. I’m not happy that America looks weak and Russia looks strong because of Obozo’s petulant remarks that were not well thought out before he made them. I am not happy that the POTUS, on live TV and in a speech broadcast to the world said that his credibility is NOT on the line for establishing a “red line” threat when the entire world… THE ENTIRE WORLD… heard him say it in the first place. I am not happy that he blames everyone else but himself for saying the “red line” is chemical weapons. I am not happy that the POTUS looks like a fool internationally. What red-blooded American could be? He’s an embarrasment. It disgusts me.
I am, on the other hand happy that we are NOT (hopefully) going to war in Syria in any way. We do not belong there. You and I agree 100% on this one, high.
Have a nice evening, high!
Let’s see, am I concerned about the slaughter of thousands of innocent people with chemical WMD or my president bowing once in front of the leader of another country? Hmm..obfuscate, redirect, deflect…your kung fu is weak ; )
El… To steal a phrase from Killary Cankles Clinton….. “What difference does it make”…. HOW they are slaughtered? Chemicals or bombs or bullets? Dead is dead. And this is a civil war where we have no business being. The point of the cartoon is how Obozo is being subservient to Putin, who by the way is making Obozo look like the monkey to the organ grinder in this case. Putin is playing Obozo like a pawn in a chess game.
Have a nice day!
Stay classy “ObozoMustGo”… your moniker and use of language say all we need to know about you… Still God bless and keep you my friend ; )
I’m not sure why I like you Eleanor, but I do… 🙂
Glad to see you are back, OMG. I don’t feel like debating tonight; in fact, I feel that America is stuck with a dilemma, and I am grateful we do not have a hothead in the Oval Office who would have done the bombing a week ago and gotten us into a war on the ground by now. I hope this latest offering by Russia works out, and I do not believe it shows us as weak; to the contrary, Russia did not even SUGGEST that they would help us until the President you despise began the process of LEGALLY setting up to launch an attack. The THREAT of an attack will, hopefully, be all that is needed to get the gas weapons “locked up” and have Assad go back to fighting the rebels without gas. This is the way Kennedy did things in 1962, being willing to go to the brink, but with faith that the other guy will back down.
Let us both pray that all sides within America and all sides in the world, even while disagreeing on important matters, will work together with responsibility for the common good. Again, I am glad you made it through whatever challenge has been keeping you away from this blog recently.
@Allan.. You seem to be an extremely intelligent person. You do yourself a disservice by responding to MustGo, as a matter of fact everyone who responds to MustGo only lowers the level serious dialog and debate that MustGo cannot comprehend. The best thing that the readers can do to raise the level of intelligent dialog is to Ignore MustGo completely! Get ready, here comes the Insults and name-calling!!!!
