    As the War Drums beat louder & louder, it appears War with Syria is inevitable. How do you feel about our involvement in it. Will you support it?

    We are broke. Where would we get the money to fight yet another unwinnable war? Besides, why would we go to war in the first place? What imminent threat does Syria or forces within pose to the US?

    When has a country not being a threat to the U.S. stopped us from going to war with them in the past?

    Obama's got so many wars going on now, what's one more gonna hurt.
    I would also suggest re-instating the draft. Maybe after a few tours of duty these Liberals will finally begin appreciating the United States a little more.

    Sure, just as long as our dear leader calls it something other than "war". That way, he needs no Congressional approval and we'd only be dropping "happy bombs".

    :eek:

    Uh, no, I would not support yet another war.

    It never has. We became the world's police at some point after WWII. And we do it for free on the backs of the American taxpyaers. However, now that everyone in our government admits we are broke, THAT should stop us.

    I too, would like to see the draft reinstated. I bet Mitt Romney (with his 5 non-serving sons) would tone down the saber rattling rhetoric then!

    Those factors don't seem to matter much in deciding whether or not to go to War. Those questions weren't even asked before going to War with Libya. So why would those questions be asked now?

    Because they SHOULD be? Borrowing money from Communist China as Bush did in order to invade and occupy Iraq and Afghanistan, should no longer be an option.

    I feel for the civilians getting hurt or killed, but it's hard to accept putting our people in harm's way unless our security is at stake. Hate to see what's going on, and if the Russians really are supplying the Syrian gov't with helos and such, then we oughta pursue some sort of sanction against them on political and economic levels. Right now, we don't seem to have the balls to stand up to Putin or anyone else for that matter.
