A leading skeptic of U.S. intervention in conflicts abroad said Sunday that he believes there is only a "50/50" chance that the GOP-controlled House will vote to authorize the use of U.S military force in the Syria.

Place your bet's

With America's 'Pride' on the line.

With America's 'Integrity' on the line.

"I think it's at least 50/50 whether the House will vote down involvement in the Syrian war," Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky said on NBC's Meet the Press.

Everyone knows the GOP has 'war hawks'.

Everyone knows the Democrats has 'war hawks'

I too think the senate will rubber stamp whatever Obama wants to do. Hell they have been carrying his water for the last five years. That is not going to change with Syria.

The only real question is the House Republicans. Make no mistake both right, and left and jocking their political position for upcoming issues.

Will Syria be collateral damage like we all have been the past five years?

Stay tuned............

Oh Russia may have feigned outrage, but the Russia mafia rakes in billions off of illegal arms sales'. They win regardless.

If the US bombs the hell out of them. Russia just get's more contracts. Same with China the worlds banker, and out of all the players in this charade. They have the most to benefit.

Chinese construction,banking, on both sides US, and who ever comes out on top Syria. There is going to be a lot of drama in the next week.

Assad has already claimed 'victory'. Iran is watching too. The world is watching. The complete, and utter lackadaisical foreign policy of Obama.

Crouching Potus, Paper Tiger is what the Us has become to the world, that's not such a bad thing in one respect.

Make no mistake. Bigger trouble is looming on the horizon. If there is one truth out of the Middle East. They respect strength. Not cowardice, and that is how it will be viewed by them.

And the pundit's will spin this all across the globe. The world's remaining 'superpower' is not so 'super'. Which is stating the obvious.

We have a winner !

With midterms coming up. The Republicans vote yes. They will bash,berate,blame the Republicans for it. Just like they have done for the last five years for everything else.

The current potus, and his party will come out smelling like roses. Basically it will be a rinse and repeat of the 2008 election on the midterms.

The left sweeps both howuse, and senate it will be a repeat of Care Act. The current potus will have carte blanche once gain to do what ever he wants.
