Thread Name: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Subject: RE: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
The American people have spoken. Poll after poll shows that they don't want war. If you lob a missile into Syrian territory, this is a declaration of war. Kerry is deluded.

The word is out on the Cuban missile crisis. It is not being hailed as the macho thing it appeared to be. Turkey had American-made missiles pointed at the USSR and this was
the reason for missiles in Cuba by the Russians.

If Obama takes the US into war, there will be a tumultuous reaction and his legacy will be like that of GW Bush. It may already be that due to drone strikes and rendition programs, not to mention the use of torture, undue surveillance and attacking whistleblowers.

Don't count on Hillary having an easy time as a result.

Personally, I no longer call myself a Democrat but an Independent like Bernie Sanders.
