Thread Name: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Subject: RE: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
At least you all across the pond are willing to debate this in Parliament and it was encouraging to see Prime Minister David Cameron get some push-back for his stance supporting a strike against Syria. President Obama seems reluctant to present his case to Congress, possibly because he knows he would get push-back from both parties (even though Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi seems to support a strike against Syria). Obama seems hell-bent for leather to fire off a couple of missiles at Syria, regardless of whether the Allies participate, regardless of what the UN weapons inspectors ultimately conclude, regardless of the consequences for Israel and the security of the United States and the world.

PBS News Hour host Judy Woodruff asks the $64 question: "Mr. President, with all due respect, what would this accomplish?" http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/white_house/july-dec13/obama_08-28.html
