    Ask the noble prize winner Obama he is the one who wants to attack Syria. Phosphorous bombs, drones, tomahawk missles, napom, atomic bombs, nukes are all ok for the u.s. to use but chemical weapons are evil and require punishment. Time to drag out all the cnn war props and propagandist rhetoric. If we want to do something destroy all u.s. nuclear and chemical weapons because they are evil and cannot be tolerated.

    WHERE IS THE ARAB LEAGUE IN THIS MESS? Syria is THEIR school yard bully/in THEIR immediate backyard. turkey is requesting US do more than limited invention. ARAB LEAGUE have their own military forces, so why aren't they lining them up to create their own coalition vs. Syria. unless an arab country needs our help/money they hate us.

    we have no dog in this fight. Syrian rebels are filled w/al quida who will be just as bad or worse (if possible) than assad. it didn't work out well for us in Egypt, so we should learn this lesson. getting involved in Syria is a lose/lose situation for America. if we do something or not we well be hated.

    No kidding, who cares what Assad thinks, that is not the point. Obviously, you are a HAWK sided opinionated show. What is the point in replacing Assad? with what? where is the reporting on what/whom will be replacing Assad? ??????

    You have not learned from Iraq, with your reporting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Stay away. Let the middle east resolve their own problems. We have enough to do in America. Take care of our seniors, feed the poor, find homes for the homeless, get drugs off our streets. And as a veteran take care of their needs. We can't resolve other countries problems if we can't take care of our own!

    If you asked me two years ago about military action against the Assad regime, I would have said yes in a heartbeat. I was eager to see a change in Syria and overthrow of a dictatorship regime and a one party system. Today, I have completely changed 180 degrees and will not want any foreign military involvement in Syria. Today we have right wing Islamist and affiliates of Al Qaida that are involved and it’s no longer a Syrian Free Army as it was two years ago. If we support the overthrow of this regime, we will have another Iraq and Afghanistan with Anti-America sentiment and more danger to the US and to Lebanon. We will have another Islamist government in power just like Iran, who knows perhaps Iran is behind all this power struggles. I wish it was not the case so we can have a more democratic system in Syria, and cut off Iran lifeline to Hezbollah in Lebanon and we will have a more peaceful relation with Israel, and a more stable Lebanon, however it is not the case nor the truth, so Mr. Obama and the Western Powers, I urge you to think twice and three time before any military action toward Syria. Sometime we don’t know how good we have it, until we don’t have it anymore. Like the Arabic proverb, the evil you know is better than the one you do not know.

    How would Assad react if the U.S. launched a missile attack. He would wouldn't he's not stupid. I would assume his militant generals, that he
    has no control over would try to fire missiles , ultimately resulting in the death's of themselves and innocent civilians of the world.

    I hope the Arab world can instill the right ideals in their children so one day we can have strong educated leaders in that region.
