2. Attacking Assad directly would be unwise.

If military intervention does take place, it will probably be like Libya: Providing air support, intelligence, and organization.

5. If we have no money social programs here at home....

Then how in the hell do we have money to spend on the killing of people halfway across the World?

It is a fucking insult that anyone expects me to believe that we will attack ANY nation out of humanitarian concern. We all know that "War" means big profits for a few, and that money will be borrowed in our name. The war profiteers are banging the war drum - any war drum , they do not care where- to drain even more money from the American tax payer.

And then they will tell us we cannot afford Social Security.


Lets apply the chained cpi to warfare: if you cannot afford it , you find a cheaper alternative.
