Kerry testifying - 09/04/13 05:13 PM
The irony of Kerry, Vietnam War antagonist, testifying to begin a new front in the war on Islam (that is how it will be perceived, I think) is rich. But at lunch the TV in the cafe was playing the hearing, and there was Kerry, with a sea of blood-red-dyed hands in the background, all up in the air behind him.

It shouldn't be perceived as a continuing war on Islam, since both sides of Syria's civil war are Islam. Using chemical weapons on your own people (or on an "enemy") is not acceptable. This a lose-lose situation no matter what is, or is not, done.

Yeah Kerry is kind of out of place...
as Ran Paul said, he should ask, "Are you willing to be the 1st to die for a lost cause?" Course we won't have boots on the ground there, but some Civs could be killed.
The only thing I think worth hitting if you do anything at all, is their oil depots & refineries (pocketbook) and hold the rest as a deterrent. Otherwise, walk away !! Just going to make a bad situation- worse !
