The U.S. has spent the last 12 years fighting against al qaeda,trillions of dollars have been spent fighting al qaeda, thousands of american lives
have been lost fighting al qaeda,dozens of american rights have been abridged or taken away in the war on terror fighting al qaeda, and now in Syria
the U.S. will affectively be allied with al qaeda.
Their is no ambiguity or debate that every missile that is launched into syria, every bomb that is dropped on syria will help al qaeda in their fight
to overthrow the syrian government.
That in and of itself should be setting off alarm bells in everyones minds.
Is there still a war on terror? Are we still at this very moment fighting al qaeda in afghanistan?
If the war on terror is over then the patriot act and other such acts need to be repealed and our rights returned to us. if the war on terror is not
over then any action, military or otherwise, that aides or gives comfort to al qaeda, where ever they may be, is treason.
How can it not be considered treasonous to be killing al qaeda in afghanistan while at the same time assisting them in syria?
A limited strike on syria will do absolutely nothing to deter the use of WMD,in fact it will encourage the use of them.
After these strikes end syria will still have their chemical weapons because the chemical weapons won`t be targeted for fear of an accidental
detonation or release of the chemicals.The lesson that will be learned is that you can use WMD and survive a U.S. retaliation attack with your WMD
still intact and ready for use.
A strike against syria would give them the perfect cover to use chemical weapons, while the strike is in progress, and then blame it on an american
missile that hit a chemical weapon stash.A missile attack against syria has zero chance of deterring future use of chemical weapons there.
This limited missile attack is nothing more than a way to provoke them into retaliating in the near future so that the U.S. will have an excuse to
start a real war with public support.
