    Newsflash- our sons and daughters are dying now and they aren't allowed to defend themselves even when fired upon.

    Obama's plan is to keep sending our troops over there to be sitting ducks until the deadline comes when we will retreat.

    September was the bloodiest month yet for our brave men and women. Didn't see much about it on the news since the media quit doing a daily body count when Obama took office.

    Draft dodger Mitt loves war.

    Just like all chicken hawk Republicans.

    How many of Romney's sons will go?

    How would arming the Syrian rebels do that? FYI that is pretty much what Obama did with Libya the problem being once the dictator was gone he walked away from Libya and we all know what the result of that was.

    Now, wait just a darn minute!

    When Obama consented to allow US forces to back Europe's intervention on the side of the Libyan rebels, and limited them to recon and support roles, that was warmongering to the right.

    What is it when Mitt wants to arm the Syrian rebels? And, one must wonder just what he'd do if that didn't swing the balance of power in their civil war. Or, if it pissed off the Russian's and Chinese and they began shipping arms to Assad directly (which they would).

    Walked away? Prove it. We've been deeply involved in post-war Libya all along and still are.

    Right because leading from behind in Libya worked so well:rolleyes:


    Anyway, arming them is starting a war? Hello, wtf you think is going down over there now?



    And, for the record, it's too late, we have no and won't have influence in Syria, this shoud have happened lat year when it really got going......whomever takes over after Assad will never trust us because we sat it out, supplies wise etc.

    Yeah lets train and arm some more Muslims like we did the taliban and Sadam and Iran, etc.

    Well it will keep the military budget up and the MIC in money.
    think of all those jobs we can save by killing people.
