    As Bad Rachel notes, "5,000 Syrians have been massacred by Bashar Assad since March, including 300 children. How are those sanctions workin’ out, Mr. Obama?"

    Are you a concerned environmentalist? I mean do you follow most of the environmental concerns and agree with the restoration of the environment?

    I disagree. I don't think we should let Syria dictate our foreign policy.

    You can think that if you want though. We're a free country.

    The problem with having President 'Lead from Behind' is that now if we suggest that such options are on the table no one would believe us.

    Do we really need all options on the table all the time in all situations? Won't that also make people not believe us?

    The international world is laughing at us right now. Iran is the loudest .. In their eyes we are getting weaker and weaker and what happens when our enemies think we are weak ?? What if they feel we are so weak they try to do another 9.11 type attack

    Let's review.

    The Bush plan: Invade Iraq. Force regime change. Rid the world of what he told us was an imminent threat to our security and destroy the massive stockpiles of Weapons of Mass Destruction he told us were there. The whole thing cost 800 billion dollars and 4200 American lives as well as nearly 40,000 maimed and wounded Americans. Countless cases of PTSD and a whole nation of pissed off Iraqis.

    The Obama plan: use drone attacks and NATO air strikes to aid and abet the Libyan resistance to Qaddafi. Rid the world of a regime that has a track record of supporting terrorism, cruelty to their own countrymen and corrupt, ineffective government. What was the final grand total spent in Libya? No American lives lost, no wounded, no long term disabled servicemen.

    Yeah! That Bush plan seems to have real advantages, if you happen to run Halliburton!

    So, if the topic is Syria, which plan would you want the United States to employ?

    Oh. By the way, the Bush plan has some faults. It takes 8 years, costs beyond American lives and treasure are relations with steadfast allies and the political future of anyone who implements it and a depletion of our military readiness world wide.

    The flaws with the Obama plan are only seen by his political opposition, primarily because it's cheaper and more effective than the Bush plan.
