#4 You Shall. Not. Pass!
Unless, you know, its an election year, or my poll numbers are down, or unemployment is up. Oh yeah, if biden headlines the news. Waffles, waffles are good.
*I'm all for the chicken orgy in syria, but when topper harley draws a line then backs down it is face losing and will bear appropriate fruit. Like eight months ago.

#5 "If he drops sarin on his own people, what's that got to do with us?"
The total lack of historical perspective by a bunch of Chicago insiders who can't conceive of anything that is not more than an election away.

#6 BTW, it's NBC - Nuclear, Biological, Chemical as in Weapons of Mass Destruction.

#7 I can only speculate, but I have nothing concrete on the administration's motives regarding WMD in Syria. Linking their decision not to act on an alleged absence of WMD in Iraq is both cunning and devious, particularly to those who assisted with the location and destruction of Saddam's WMD.
If I find the foto of Champ and Vlad winking and nodding over a beer.... I'll be sure to post it.

#8 If that idiot advisor to Obambi would read the fine print in the treaties most of the civilized world signed about banning chemical and biological weapons, use of chemical weapons by any country is a cause for concern.
how come the liberals are so cold blooded and unconcerned about chemical weapons and so concerned about a shooting at a MacDonalds'
Makes you wonder if it is moral nihilism or just plan stupidity.

#11 Well, your first problem is worrying about the UN. Screw the UN, what are they going to do, write us a nastygram?
Your second problem is thinking we have a side to favor in Syria. We don't. Both sides are our enemies. Let them kill each other.

Silly Bill. What's to wonder?

#13 Yeah, I guess moral nihilism and stupidity are not mutually exclusive and I agree we probably don't have a dog in that fight, other than to hope the frolic depletes their resources in manpower and explosives for a long time.
Pass the pop corn.

#14 Extra butter with that, Bill?
Luckily I got a new boxcar-load in this weekend, in anticipation of the festivities. ;-p
