The reason we are going to war is because Assad used chemical weapons to kill his own people. Assad in two years has killed 120,000 of his own people with bombs and bullets but now that he has used chemical weapons we are willing to attack Syria. Let me get this straight, if Assad would have continue to slaughter his own people without chemical weapon we would allow this. stay out, i wouldn't be surprised if the chemical weapons were used by the rebels that were supplied by a middle eastern country, stay out!!!!!!
Stay out as some have said. In this region of the world anything the US does is turned against us. The Egyptians are blaming us for their problems now. #$%$ when these people's mouths are moving they are lying. None of them are worth one drop of American blood.
Don't feel too bad about your confusion. All of the U.S. is confused about such matters. (Consider craigs' post below. He ostensibly criticizes Assad for WMD use, and then promotes the use of WMD. Schizophrenia anyone?)
One thing the U.S. is not confused about is the fact armed conflict is a profit center. (If you consider the U.S.'s actions through the C-M-I lens, it all makes sense, though checking your sense of humanity, ethics, morals, etc. at the door may be required.)
As if Bush and Iraq was not bad enough, now we have Obama and Syria,, be that as it may, Assad has used weapons of mass destruction,, that just cannot be allowed, but, why do we have to be the hero,,
NO boots,, if we have to attack, then be swift and true, bomb the living hell out of him so he dies,, kill him a lot,,
