    The comparison to bush in this situation is silly.

    Obama is not making up reasons to start a war, he is talking about one surgical strike.

    His VP does not hold $millions worth of stock options in a government contracting company.

    We already know chemical weapons actually exist

    Bush (Cheney really) was eager for war, Obama is not!

    Sending Assad the way of Gaddafi is worth it. I had no problems with Libya. I have no problems with Syria. I had no problems with how Bin Laden was put down. 12 years later and still in Afghanistan? That's not the same animal at all. I wouldn't mind the same treatment given to Bashir. I'm far to realistic to expect the same outcome for Kim Jong Un.
    Anyone who can't see the difference should really start posting on a board about quilt making instead of politics.

    @FFS- If there's not, there should be an Obamamania detox program you could check yourself into. Maybe your friends, at some point, will do an intervention?

    @FFS- It appears 0bama is giddy to get this one started. Seeing as the UN and more recently the UK rejected the notion to send troops there. Now 0bysmal wants to go it alone? I always knew 0bysmal was a war monger just like Bush. And yes, it IS a fair comparison if 0bysmal continues to push this.

    For the same reason the left were friends with Hitler when he and Stalin signed a non-aggression treaty and suddenly changed when Hitler invaded the USSR. Obama is a Communist and the left will always be on his side no matter what. If Obama was a secret Tea-partier, the left would be with him.

    You pretty much nailed it, but in the 1930s, most American Communists left the party rather than support Hitler. I don't see any Democrats abandoning Obama.

    @Ryuo You mean those crazy leftits like Henry Ford who was given the highest honor a non-German could receive prior to the war for his help to the cause. Yeah, Ford had crazy ideas about unions and stuff. He wanted the people in them to have their heads bashed with a baseball bat.
    Or the whole communist/nazi lovefest that NEVER existed ever.
    Yeah, you can go into the Nazi's are liberals rant all you want. Nazism is as far away from liberalism or communism for that matter as you can get. Nazism is a very very far right ideology.
    You should have stuck to Stalin or Lenin comparisons instead of going full blown Hitler. You'd have some footing at least on that.

    @frigginhell Actually, I was comparing Democrats to Communists, and implying that Communists were better. Well, in some ways.

    Obama is not very similar to Hitler, Lenin, or Stalin, but he is extremely similar to Mussolini up to this point in their careers. Fortunately, we have term limits... so far.

    @frigginhell That may be a good comp too, since Bush Sr may have inadvertently encouraged Saddam to invade Kuwait.

    @Food4thoughts Well, 0bysmal is "staying the course" regarding Afghanistan and GITMO, so apparently it is the best policy.

    There is one legal way to attack Syria and that is by a joint resolution of congress unless Syria poses an imminent threat of attack on us. Obama acting on his own is an IMPEACHABLE offense.

    Ohhh, give it up about the Obama this, Obama that... you guys sound like kindergarten dropouts. Do some deeper thinking for once!

    @Dakotahgeo Remember, you are talking about conservatives here.

    This is a group of people who blame Obama for the federal government's failures after Hurricane Katrina. A group that thinks that GW Bush got Osama bin Laden. These guys think that Sarah Palin is qualified to be President.

    If you keep pointing out their cognitive deficiencies they will report you to President Romney.

    @Dakotahgeo Actually when talking about the way the Left thinks we have to revert backwards...every time I try to figure out what some like Biden, Pelosi, or Sharpton might be thinking I do.
  • #57

    @Dakotahgeo - Deeper thinking "Obama Lied Men Died!"

    At least try to veil your partisanship behind honest motives. Attacking Syria = Attacking Libya = Attacking Iraq

    If you didn't like Bush becuase of "his" wars then you need to speak up against Obama's.

    In Cindy Sheehan defense, she has been consistent and has continued to protest the wars. She supported Obama, until it was obvious in his first year he was a liar. The only difference now is her faux supporters stopped supporting her and the media stopped giving her coverage.

    wow I had to read halfway through that garbage to get to the point " the left is silent because there's a Democrat president"

    I can admire someone who stands behind their convictions even if I don't agree but the silence of the anti war and pacifists groups stinks of the hypocrisy that defines the left.

    They are hypocrites, they were anti-Bush - it's that simple. There's monetary agenda behind Syria too, otherwise we would have been attacking... I mean providing "humanitarian aid" to many other countries already.

    I don't know who this 'the left' is, but everyone I've talked to personally is opposed to going into Syria. All of them. Right, left, center... I'm not sure why there needs to be protests from 'the left' when nobody is fully behind the action. No good can come from it.

    @N0rthman My point is that why does this fall on 'the left' when NOBODY supports it? Well besides the congressmen that are from states that make war toys. Instead of taking potshots for political points why not use it as an opportunity to bring the country together? Nope, gotta keep feeding the fire.

    @N0rthman Funny, how you conservatives don't believe anything in the media, except if it attacks policies you don't like. This article is nonesense. What makes you think its true?

    @Denizen_Kate: I have since 2003, up until Obama was elected I've been labeled "unAmerican" and a "liberal", and since 2009 I've been labeled a "racist" and "teabagger".

    Maybe because the death toll of over 100,000 innocent CIVILIANS. I'm not about getting into another conflict either...but it's a hard pill to swallow sitting idly by when there is something we could do to stop it. From a moral standpoint we're fucked in any decision we make. Yet again Obama is stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    It's not our business. Syria poses no imminent threat to the U.S. Is it tragic what's going on over there? Yes, but we are not the worlds police force. No good will come from us attacking Syria.

    @JumpRoundhouse
    I mean I get that...and I agree not the world police and I get that attacking Syria could end up not working out in the long run. It still doesn't eliminate the moral crossroads of us as a country (because no one else will) to doing nothing as EXTREME atrocities happen to ALOT of women and children. Do you think we should of intervened when Hitler was gassing a bunch of Jews?

    For the record, with a heavy heart, I am also opposed to military action.

    The last paragraph in particular is comical. Does anyone remember OWS? These are the young aspiring leftists. They do what they are paid to do. Plus, theyre lazy. Its all fake. They back this prez. They want this conflict.

    Yep, and if it were Romney or McCain in office, these same hypocrites would be out on the streets now screaming bloody murder. Just goes to show the hypocrisy of the left.

    Liberals don't want this war. Obama will be making a terrible mistake if he gets involved in another middle eastern conflict.
  • #71

    I agree with you. I wish there were more leftists like you that would sound off against it. I strongly believe we will be making a big mistake if we go into Syria, whether for a full out campaign or a "surgical strike." Syria should not be our problem.
  • #18

    I don't know of any liberal who is FOR attacking Syria at this point. It has not been proven that the Syrian government is the one who used the weapons.

    I am against us leading it, if we find the government is responsible, but due diligence is absolutely required, then the UN should lead this one.

    I have a few liberal buddies that are for war (former anti-war/bush), they are as enthusiastic about attacking Syria as punishing the rich.
  • #61
    !
    What are their reasons for supporting a war?
    I know of no liberal bent on punishing the rich, just those supporting a more fair contribution to our democracy, the rich have way too much influence without the burden of being taxed.
  • #68

    Agreed. I was also against the war in Iraq too. We had no business going in after Saddam as that tyrant could've been dealt with differently. I believe the same can happen to Al-Asad. Let Syria deal with Syria, it's none of our business.
