Following last week's chemical attack, the West has engineered a media campaign to facilitate a military incursion; but there are doubts on the veracity of US and European claims about the incident.

Can you imagine how quickly we would be involved big time if John McCain were president? I applaud Obama for not jumping the gun - this kind of thing is too easily manipulated.

I don't need to imagine how fast the right-wing would jump the gun; the administration is reinforcing the Sixth Fleet with ships armed with cruise missiles; preparing a shock force of 20,000 troops should boots on the ground be required; and pushing a media campaign to indoctrinate the American people and drum up support for yet another war. We are speeding towards war to the physical limits that we are able. I can't imagine that one right-wing candidate could go much faster than the present right-wing, pro-war administration.

Carter didn't invade Iran, Clinton kept us out of Yugoslavia, all it takes is self control.
We need not fall into the self fulfilling prophecy of the movie, "the mouse that roared", they attacked the us, for us to rebuild their country. ..sound familiar? ?

Whatever is happening and I would not doubt a chemical attack, it seems to be a fete accompli. Drones will probably be sent in and killing without discrimination of friend or foe, civilian or combatant. We have move the fleet and reading numerous articles this morning leads me to believe that we are already deeply entrenched in this disaster. Many very ugly possibilities are on the horizon with this current interference, and none of them are good for the United States.

Hawks should be feeling all warm and fuzzy. The rest of us, not so much. Thanks Brian for this article and discussion.

If this country exported #peace half as much as it exports war, then we might not have leaders that tell us lies that we know are lies yet we pretend they are truth and our leaders pretend that we support them...and we might not be facing yet another war of conquest, this time in #Syria. #nodrones #dronestrikes

Thanks Kit! "You cannot currently send a star to Kit because you have done so within the last day."

I don't think that this is lies about the chemical attacks on civilians, though I do not see that means the United States need go to war. It's a sad thing when the rebels are just as despicable as the corrupt government of a country, but how does the United States intervention change that? It does not. Would it not be far better to help with aid to Turkey and Jordan for the now hundreds of thousands of refugees? This is already a humanitarian crisis that will just get much worse as time passes.
