    A former NSA director using the phrase “sounds like an Iranian proxy” should be taken with a few million grains of salt.

    The Washington Post, which is of course a borderline official government publication, today published an article calling the intel on Syria “not a slam dunk” (nice nod to Tenet there!), that they aren’t sure Assad actually ordered the attack, and that they aren’t sure it was the Syrian military at all. I think that is a big story coming from the Post.

    Every one of the US’ allies has balked at or walked back their support for Obama’s “Bomb first, ask questions later” approach. International law does not support unilateral action– in Obama’s own explicit words.

    We should not allow a repeat of Iraq. Does Obama keep his Peace Prize locked up where he can’t see it, or does the man lack even an ounce of shame?

      We should instead allow a repeat of the takeover of Czechosolovkia by the Volksdeutche. Using poison gas to boot. And with jackbooted thugs as a side benefit.

      Assad and the Syrian army are the only ones with the necessary delivery capabilities to achieve an attack of the scope witnessed. The UN will have a report on Saturday, which will be heavily censored because of Russian interference and the crazy situation on the ground in Syria. Waiting for the UN is like waiting for the icecaps to melt. I might happen, but most of us will be dead first.

      Repeat of Iraq? Do you want to explain that?

    Dont worry, It will not happen as it is an impeachable offense for Obama to do this! Just ask Joe Biden.

    A Syrian cyber army? The most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. 85% of the probing traffic to my networks comes from China, the rest mostly from the US or European countries. A computer attacking my network from Syria or Iran happens less than 1% of the time. This article is propaganda and rubbish.

    I wonder why the media has not asked Hillary about this situation? I am thinking that she thinks this is all because of a bad movie about Islam.

      More likely caused by a failure to prophylactically take control of all governments in the Middle East by force or stealth.

      Most likely because she is no longer Secretary of Defense.

    The only way I see us taking action is if these chemical weapons somehow destroy us as humans around the world. I don’t know anything about the use of chemical weapons, but if the chemical somehow can make it back to the United States and have adverse affects on us, then we need to do something. If when they use chemical weapons, the chemical does it’s thing and it’s life is short lived, then unfortunately we cannot police the world, nor do they want us to.

      Then you must have been against the war in Iraq. That was supposedly done for the same exact reason.
