    As usual, Kraut nails it. Another year of Dithering by our Ditherer in Chief.

    "Want to send a message? Call Western Union. A Tomahawk missile is for killing. A serious instrument of war demands a serious purpose."

    "A message-sending three-day U.S. air attack will accomplish nothing.

    Having leaked to the world, and thus to Syrian President Bashar Assad, a detailed briefing of the coming U.S. air attack on Syria -- (1) the source (offshore warships and perhaps a bomber or two), (2) the weapon (cruise missiles), (3) the duration (two or three days), (4) the purpose (punishment, not "regime change") -- perhaps we should be publishing the exact time the bombs will fall, lest we disrupt dinner in Damascus."

    Yeah, we should all tune in to Rachel Madow and Chris Mathews and read blogs on moveon.org like Row.

    Cut me a break Row. Kraut is one of the smartest and most accomplished men in the country and he's done it from a wheelchair.

    Isn't it amazing how our normal allies are running away from this fool? Obama?

    Anyone want to guess how the vote turns out in either the House or Senate if Obama does in fact go to Congress? The man has not built any relationships nor made any attempts other than a lame dinner. He's aloof. His only friends seem to be those who he's given jobs, those who want jobs and his two dogs. And Valerie Jarrett.

    So you're supportive of any bombing in Syria?

    He is right. We are attacking so that Obama saves face. We are becoming a world embarrassment.

    Thank god we already got his Nobel peace prize.

    Cons a few days ago: Obama is a wuss for not attacking!

    Cons now: How dare he attack!

    Nope, I said it before and I'll say it again. We need no part of this conflict, let the Arabs sort this out.

    More likely said when they crossed "the line" the first time weeks ago!

    Now everyone sees any attack is about the amateur trying to show the world he means what he says, and when he draws a line you better not cross it(only after he has been called out for weeks regarding his tough talk).

    It's a desperate attempt to save face, but it's to late and his plan is weak and will not change anything, especially not the world's opinion of him being a big wuss.

    I was, and I said we should never engage in nation building either. That war was a joke and I knew it from the start.

    You should have told slick Willy before he bombed Iraq first... before GWB.
