    Violence erupts around Syria, protesters shot
    DAMASCUS, Syria Violence erupted around Syria on Friday as troops opened fire on protesters in several cities and pro- and anti-government crowds clashed on the tense streets of the capital in the most widespread unrest in years, witnesses said.
    Soldiers shot at demonstrators in the restive southern city of Daraa after crowds set fire to a bronze statue of the country's late president, Hafez Assad, a resident told The Associated Press. Heavy gunfire could be heard in the city center and witnesses reported several casualties, the resident said on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.

    So when does the Coalition/NFZ start for Syria?

Hmmm? Hmmmmmmmm? So logically, if we don't attack North Korea we had no business attacking Iraq."

    Anybody hear/read of the leftists trotting out their North Korea "logic" vis-a-vis Obama and Libya?
    Libya was not on Bush's Axis of Evil list.

    Better the devil you know. And Ka daffy is a known. IF, he is tossed, it will be a big unkown as to who will take over, and that scares me. We have too many enemies in the mideast already and cannot afford to piss off more of them.

    The US was wise to sit back publicly and work the back channels to NOT be the first in. WE screwed up with Iraq II and , IMO,are still paying the price. Hussein was also a devil we knew and could have disposed of him in many ways that did not involve a big ego, billions of dollars and most importanly the lives of our young men and women. The only winners in that mess are a few companies making billions of dollars off the blood and sacrifice of many brave men and women. Iraq is a mess and it's people will be suffering for years to come, in many ways, more that they ever did.

    When you all cat fight with each other, remember all of the young men and women lost because of us not learning lessons from the past, and an ego that the US can do whatever it wants and not suffer for it. Time to take a back seat or supporting role as the worlds policeman and let others take the lead.

This goof of a president could take a dump on your face and yall would probably send him a thank you card.
    If you've followed the various threads on the Libya situation, you would see my position is much closer to RoadKills than anyone else. You and the others continually frame the discussion and assign other peoples' thoughts and opinions to them. You are completely off base if you think I blindly support Obama!

    I bet when you guys played checkers as kids, you thought you got to put the other person's checkers where YOU wanted them to be, didn't you?
