So we're going to war with Syria because they used chemical weapons? Even though no one seems to know if Assaad or the rebels used them? Not clear but going to war? Does this remind anyone of Iraq and the phony excuse of WMDs that was used to lie us into attacking them? I thought the US sent Obama a clear message in the last election that we were sick of war and wanted to work on our own ailing nation--not screwing around in the Middle East where we are already despised. Why is Obama ignoring us? (Hint: he already got our votes.) Here's what John Vietnam-vet-turned-peacenik-turned-I-need-more-money-than-even-my-wealthy-wife-has-so-I'll-do-anything Kerry has to say on Syria: AP: "The indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. By any standard, it is inexcusable and - despite the excuses and equivocations that some have manufactured - it is undeniable," said Kerry, the highest-ranking U.S. official to confirm the attack in the Damascus suburbs that activists say killed hundreds of people. "This international norm cannot be violated without consequences." If indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, women and children using chemical weapons is such an obscenity when Syria does it, maybe the US should attack itself. We did all that in Iraq and it didn't just kill the hundreds. It killed hundreds of thousands. For no reason other than greed. Stop US terrorism now! MORE: AP
