    Well I agree with you whole heartedly, would appear that even the brass at Politix are ready to follow Obummer off a bluff like lemmings, though.

    Actually all of America depends on it!

    What their not telling you is that the U.S. is shipping nuclear weapons overseas .... started today!

    This has nothing to do with Syria and everything to do with Russia!

    @JustTheFacts Interesting statement. Do you have references to that or is that just what you think?

    How so. The biggest reason I see given time and again on here is we don't want to help al queada. So the argument is that if Assad falls then al queada will rise. Where is the guarentee that Assad will remain in power if the US stays out of this? So if he does fall does that not mean that al queada just got control of syria and it's chemical weapon? Who here thinks it's not in our best interests to do something to stop this from happening? If we know where al queada in syria is who is to say a couple of those tomahawks won't just suddenly stray off course and hit them instead of a syrian army target?
    As for these soldiers, they need to learn to do their job and shut their mouths. If they don't want to kill poor people for rich people they made a piss poor career decision.

    @frigginhell I do not understand how you can think our attacking Assad and diminishing his military doesn't help Al Qaeda. We will be giving arms to Assad's opponents. They will end up in Al Qaeda or Hezbollah hands.

    to funny. we can't trust the media. here is my link to a media outlet to prove it. don't be bothered by the lack of evidence and just take my media source as a legitimate reason we can't trust any media sources.

    It's just jaw jacking... Why would we believe anything Syria said? More than likely, this is a Photoshop job done by some main stream media person to jerk a reaction from the public.

    @Calfkiller So many things wrong in your one short post.

    - "Libtards" is a word a child uses. Be an adult.

    - Mr. Obama is the president of the United States. He is not "our dear leader" or "the messiah" or any of the other off-base things conservatives call him in ill-conceived sarcasm.(Because the liberals they seek to parody never call him anything remotely close to that nor do they think of him that way. Parody and sarcasm need a basis in reality to be effective.)

    - Mr. Obama has sought to work on a bi-partisan basis since the day he stepped into office. But since the GOP's number one goal was to wreck this country so they could blame it on a Democrat president, they never cooperated or practiced any kind of statesmanship.

    Nor are they doing so now. They just know elections are on the horizon and they don't dare look like pacifists while voters will remember it.

    - I haven't read liberals lobbying for war. I have read many Americans, liberal and conservative, point out it is inappropriate for military members to make political statements while in uniform. More than one of their fellow soldiers has pointed out that what they signed up to do was serve.

    Were they really American soldiers? Who knows? That's actually an interesting question and I hope we find out.

    @Zazziness Was it really Assad who gassed those people, or was it really al-quida doing it to their own (GASP) women and children, in order to draw us into doing the job they have been unable to accomplish thus far. THAT'S actually an interesting question, and I hope we find out.

    @CATTLEPROD
    I have no doubt in my mind that al queda gassed civilians in order to draw in western powers to topple Assad and put them in charge. It's a win win for them. They get Assad out and they get more infidels to kill.

    It's not like al queda hasn't done worse to civilians. What's a thousand or so dead civilians to a terrorist? It's simply a chess move.

    A soldier goes to war to protect our freedom but cannot use that freedom?
    I know...they get paid...Isn't that the excuse some give?
    Well, show them some respect. A President that is spying on your family, friends, and you, wants you to fight for another country? Anyone should question that.

    I can't help it. I agree with these guys. WTF are we doing aiding a rebel who ate the raw heart and liver another human being? WTF are we doing aiding a rebel who accepts help from Al Qaeda? WTF are we doing aiding al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood gain political strength in the region?

    WTF ARE WE DOING?!?!

    I don't know if this is an effort by the SEA to alter public opinion, real protests by servicemembers, or the Tea Party shilling for a repressive dictator. But it is amusing to see the Occupy "I am the 99%" style of combining handwritten signs and images co-opted by a Tea Party group.

    If they have done this all the more concern of what can be done if we attack.Perhaps that is why the government put out the warning they did a few days ago.

    Good because more people need to speak out against the oncoming War. And who better than US soldiers? I remember my freshmen year of college protesting the Iraq war in the streets. Maybe if more soldiers were against the war we still wouldn't be pulling out troops 10 years later.

    @PauldenZangpo Excuse me, 9 years later. 2012. Did the 1 year make a difference considering we shouldn't have been there at all?

    Civilians have no understanding of the good order and discipline required of the Armed Forces. If you have any doubt, browse the posts here supporting active duty members making political statements in uniform-in violation of a standing DOD directive. Join, serve, find out for yourself.

    You actually have a good point and the troops could actually go on "strike" (refuse to fight in the Syrian conflict) in his case.
    They would in fact be upholding their oath to the US Constitution y defending it against ALL enemies foreign and domestic because...
    The rebels that are fighting against Assad are tied to and/or part of Al-Qaeda, Al-Qaeda is a known enemy of the US, Obama wants to aid that known enemy, this would make Obama a traitor, traitor are an enemy to the US Constitution, therefor they would be upholding their oath by 'not' aiding a foreign enemy and 'not' aiding a domestic enemy a.k.a. traitor.

    @HeresSomeTruth Have you served in the military? They can't simply go on strike as you would like to believe. That is simply a foolish statement on your part.

    @MarkJM
    My sister I'd an NCO in the US Navy. And yes they can go on "strike" in a sense, they can just refuse to follow the order. Yes they will face a court martial but none the less they can refuse the order.

    @HeresSomeTruth They will also lose that Honorable discharge (with it their VA Benefits). Okay you do have some understanding here.

    @HeresSomeTruth
    Actually according to UMC they are not suppose to follow illegal orders, and aiding an enemy is an illegal order. You do know that Al Qaeda is an enemy of the US?
    So you believe in aiding Americans enemies huh?

    It's almost as sad as the fact that the people who are all wet in the pants over Obama leading us into battle are the same ones that had mental breakdowns every time Bush mentioned the Iraq or Afghanistan wars.

    So now they might begin to realize why there's a regulation forbidding the sort of stupidity they displayed.
    It aids the enemy.

    I'd call them traitors, but they aren't smart enough to be traitors, they're just stupid immature morons who forgot their oath the same day they swore to it.

    I,(NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

    Unfortunately it seems most of our politicians forgot their oath the day they swore to it as well. Something about that "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic" just doesn't bode well with them. Few men with a sense of duty and honor anymore, sadly.

    Yet more reasons that having an account on Facebook is a bad idea. Especially if you use it to spout off politically.
    At least here we are nameless and faceless.... Right Politix?.... Heh heh... right!?

    "I didn't join the Navy to fight for El-Quida in a Syrian civil war". Maybe not, but when you joined the US Military you had to know there were gonna be some decisions made you may not agree with. You signed a contract with the US Military, do as they say.

    @DrNickels sounds like the new military. Question evening before acting. That attitude causes people to die in combat. I'm sick of the people in Congress deciding how people are trained. All these kids signing a contract they can now just quit on, don't touch me and God for bid, don't hurt my feelings. Stress cards they pass out now in boot camp? Our military has become weak because of this.
