I get what he means (least i think he does)
If its the rebels causing th violence and death, the people would just back Assad and allow him to stamp them out. But they arent, they are fleeing the entire country.

I dont think the US has 10,000 troops ready to take on Syria. Taking on Syria will be 100x harder than taking on Iraq, and we did that with 150,000 + troops.

Also, the US would never in its wildest dreams send men into a chemical war. (anyone who believed this would happen in Iraq is deluded)

If majority of the fighters in the Syria rebels are in fact, Saudi, Sudan, Somolia, Iraqi etc.. then how can It be called a civilwar?

Assad has clearly had outside assistance in keeping his position, especially without any assasination attempts.

I believe that this is a face off between the USA and Russia, its just that they dont want to play their hand yet.

I'm straying away from the point of the article buuut.....aircraft carriers can't hold 8,000 men. I used to work on the Lincoln flight deck for 4 years. A full crew is around 5,000 people and pushing it at 6,000.

The is article is blowing smoke

the way the info trickles down now, we don't know who is doing what now in the middle east.
we're living in an age where cynicism is your best friend and paranoia could just save your life.
you have to ask your self, if things were so bad in Syria why wouldn't wiki leaks expose it or anonymous find the real info and expose it.

Kinda getting tired of all these mid-east wars. Don't we have enough trouble at home to work out?

And whatever happened to Presidents needing to go thru Congress before undertaking military operations in another country? Aren't we supposed to formally declare war after a democratic vote before we invade countries? I know, I know... Obama hasn't actually gone to war yet, but when he does (and sadly, I'm sure he will) I'm willing to bet he doesn't ask Congress first.

Not just hating on Obama; other presidents deserve to be the target of this rant as well.

Any use of chemical weapons will be from AL CIA-duh forces, meant to demonize the Syrian regime, please do not drink the Kool-Aid....


LOL, I guess Syria could NEVER commit or due any wrong... It's ALWAYS the CIA..... wow


I'm not a fan of either... Syria has a history of civilian oppression. The CIA has a long history of assassinations, creating rebel uprisings in foreign nations and planting false flags. That's basically what they do lol.

So who knows. I see a lot of players and no one that's really good or can be trusted.
It's not good vs evil, as the tv usually tells us. It's more like evil vs evil vs gray area vs confusion.

well since nixons war powers act it hasent been technically required if the engagement lasts less then 60 days then the president needs to get approva.

l been that way since tricky dick even though i think truman set the precedent in korea with not getting permission at first but he did it through the un if memory serves me

So are you suggesting that Syria shouldn't be stopped?


What are Syria doing? Last I heard, terrorists were invading and government forces were fighting with them. Apparently the terrorists have also acquired chemical agents and are killing cute bunnys.

This one is also somewhere in the Atlantic by now, on the way to Norfolk. She'll be home for two months, undergoing deck resurfacing, then heads back to the ME.

If we get a peace process in the ME especially concerning Israel and Palestine, you don't want to be around afterwards....

well, everyone complaining about the snot nosed
little game playing kids now days wont be doing that
for long....

life for everyone is about to change.

the only question is how bad will it get and how
far will it go.


Avoid? Hell, this scenario was planted, watered, and cared for. Now it's ready to be harvested. This is a crop grown every 10 years or so, and will continue to be so.

Wow... Really??? So Syria has done no wrong? I guess everyone is just making up all the stories you see around since this conflict started...

Firstly, (and there's another thread a bit further down discussing this) the Eisenhower is on its way home for scheduled maintenance/repairs. It came through the Suez Canal because that's the fastest route back home. So, as far as I know, although it was close to Syria for a short time (and did indeed look threatening) it's now currently steaming West and away from the area in question. That's the official line anyway - I would love to know if it IS actually heading away in reality...

The 10,000 Marines on the Iwo Jima isn't anything close to being an invasion force either. The priority would be the chemical weapons and they're spread out around the country. The Pentagon apparently (from a news story I heard) thinks it would take around 75,000 troops to secure all the chemical weapons sites alone. 10,000 isn't the kind of numbers you would be seeing if anything was imminent.

I also don't think the Patriot missiles are significant either....it's a pretty obvious concern for Turkey as they're right next door to this mess. Patriot missiles are purely defensive and it seems like a sensible precaution to me.

Obviously, this could still escalate - but the current status (and despite the exciting headline...) is pretty normal and nothing to get in a panic about.

tear gas is a chemical weapon, so is pepper spray.

maybe syria should just use a non-lethal diluted sarin gas mixture to make everybody happy.

america is on a roll, another middle eastern country to topple. they're running out quick of arab dictators.

the only thing that bothers me is the hypocrisy, some people are worthy of nato and american intervention, usually when oil is involved and some like the n.koreans and palestinians can't even get an email replied.

Oh so your one of those nothing happens in the world that the US does not control. The reality would scare you silly. We are normally two steps behinds events and trying to play catch up. Real life is not like movies and TV. It happens without control and events are near impossible to predict based on the human factor. If only it was as easy as people think.

The article doesn't say the carrier has 8,000 men others have speculated that. It say 8 fighter bomber groups.

Well if you're going to overthrow someone you deem to be an enemy, you better make sure that the country has "something" you can take back to make it worth your while.... It may sound sh*tty but thats how superpowers work, its happened over the past and its happening now apparently...
