    How come none of the anchors ever ask the really important questions about attacking Syria?
    Listed below are some questions I as a viewer would like asked of John McCain, Lindsey Graham or Roger King? Mr. King, Mr. Graham, Mr. McCain & the President talk about no boots on the ground like the there is no possibility of American troops being killed.
    1. What is the U.S prepared to do if Assad sends & hits some of our ships with Kamikazes?
    2. What is the U.S prepared to do if Russia & Iran attack our ships?
    3. What is the U.S prepared to do if the as in Syria, Russia & Iran attack Turkey, Jordan, Israel or Saudi Arabia?
    4. Some Americans fear that this action may in fact trigger a WWIII what do you have to say to them?
    5. Who is going to pay for the cost of replacing all the weapons used in this mission?
    6. Do you honestly believe what the Free Syrian Army is telling you about not allowing Syria to become a Jihadist State if by chance Assad is killed in the attacks?
    7. If countries like Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Israel want Assad removed why don’t they send in their troops or fire their weapons and pick up the cost?
    These are just some of the questions I would like asked of our Politicians on both sides of the aisle.

    The best strategy is follow the laws. It violates international law to attack another country without UN approval unless they attack you first. Syria has not attacked the U.S. and poses no immediate threat to the U.S. Under the U.S. anti-terror laws if you give support to alqaeda you are considered a terrorist. If Obama attacks Syria he will be giving military support to alqaeda and islamic terrorists. Assad is fighting alqaeda rebels who are trying to overtthrow Syria. Why would Obama and congress want to support alqaeda/Islamic terrorists?

    INSANITY! How does anyone know that the rebels didnt use the chemical weapons just to bring in outside forces against the Regime.
    I want to see, personally, at least 100 Syrians who were injured by chemical weapons, that arent on the CIA or NSA payroll and ask them pertinent questions about the 'alleged' attack.
    Are we prepared to involve ourselves with Syria's internal problems and risk a firestorm of Putin's nuclear missiles on U. S. Citizens?

    Here is the reason why the American people do not support a war against Syria. The media like CNN and MSNBC have lied to us along with the President so many times once again we believe we are being lied to. Example 1 shortly after the Presidents inauguration he hands Iraq over to Iran by not supporting a new SOFA. Then he decides to ignore the possible Iranian revolution. Time goes on and then he sells guns to the criminals thru Eric Holder a border agent is killed and he claims executive privilege so we don`t find out the truth. Then he says we will be in Libya for weeks not months and it turns out to be six months. We all know about Benghazi were the President lied to us. One last thing but I can go on Ft. Hood being workplace violence. The things in common with all of these things are the President has either lied or deceived the American people and you CNN have supported those lies and that is why you and also the President has lost all credibility with the American people. Anyone with an IQ over 50 also knows that the chemical weapons being used are the ones Saddam Hussein moved to Syria before the Iraq war one more thing you CNN will not tell the truth about.

    Re. Ms. Feinstein's comments: I'm happy to have someone who knows more than I do leading decisions such as attacking Syria. I'm good at my job but can't compete with my doctor, my accountant, or my mechanic in their areas of expertise. Let's hear from those who do know the international ramifications of this act, let them use any other information we're not privy to, and trust they do the right thing,
