I say that’s fine. If Obama wants to go to war, He needs to lead on the battlefield just like Washington, Andrew Jackson, Napoleon, or Alexandra did.
I bet you if all leaders were forced to lead at the frontlines, I have a feeling we would not have as many wars.

Govts are only representative of the People, and reflects the People's will - on what the People will do in their everyday life.
Suppose you have a problem in the office and is rushing back halfway through lunch, but along the way, you see a kid knocked down by a RUNAWAY truck, do you tell yourself, say screw it, let someone handle it to justify your continued rush for self centred reasons, OR, do you stop, pick up the child and quickly send the child to the hospital, to save a life?
The answer is a no brainer to humans. Only animals say differently. No need to distract, derail, or deflect from that simple question or give a wall of text on pathetic lame excuses for justification of your self centredness.
Today, a 100 innocent men, women and babies will die as the Syrian genocidal massacres by its insane monarch continues on, as a daily average for those who wish to keep the score.
We mankind most certainly have problems on our own hands - mouths to feed, jobs to find, items to own, bills to pay, etc. But all those issues will come due to the choices we made in life, however, it will not snuff out our lives, as we are in control and do have the ability to deal with it in our own time and our own way.
Wish I can say the same for our 100 daily innocent fellow brothers and sisters in Syria whom will soon die....... with us saying to hell with them.......the way one would say screw it to a child knocked down by a runaway vehicle left alone in the middle of the road......

More like, "We have a moral obligation to eliminating Russia's last remaining foothold in the Middle East".
Abbreviated for brevity, but fully noted.
There has to be SOMETHING we're not seeing or being told here. Has to be some real REASON for it...especially if it involves arming terrorists.

the same link indicates that the opposition is being supported by the Gulf States, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan, with the approval of the US, so it's not like we are the Lone Ranger in pursuit of this lunacy.

At this point in time we are probably one of least morally fit countries around.To claim to be so is verging on the insane.
Let them fix their own mess and let's bring our people back home and fix our own mess here. This is not quite as bad as the bs that Bush and company pulled, but it is inching ever closer by the day.
