Yes Congress will support nobama. Simply because our Government NEVER listens to what WE The People want.

Rightly stated, Ethomas38...The majority of the people are saying that they do not want this and therefore, as representatives of the people, they should vote no.

Senate will. House might not...but probably will.

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military–industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist." -Dwight Eisenhower

Lots of Raytheon and Lockheed Martin shareholders in Congress...

Question ? What happens when a message is sent to Assad and others that America and it's allies are all talk.

N.Korea has a bigger stock pile of gases,

What happens when that nut case uses them on S.Korea and our forces stationed there ?

What happened earlier this year when North Korea was going to launch a nuke and we didn't invade them?

Did they launch it ? Do they actually have the capability ? Did China step in and cool their heels. There' a difference in saying something and doing it,

Assad has done it several times and there has been no response.

What happens when this stuff gets in the hands of the wrong people and they release some of it in areas of our bigger cities ?

I still have yet to see hard evidence that Assad is even the guilty party. Unless you consider Kerry and Obama saying "it was absolutely Assad" hard evidence.

Whats your definition of invading, ?

I've seen no mention of putting any arms forces on the ground.

Apperantly the intel agencies have presented this evidence to the proper officials.

Maybe you should ask to be included

You realize that you can make sarin gas in your basement by mixing chemicals that you can buy at Walmart and online? It isn't some mystical thing that only some people can have. A writer for Scientific American spend $130 dollars and produced enough to kill 10,000 people.

Why shouldn't we be included? It's our people and our money. If they had hard evidence, we would know about it because gaining the support they want would be a slam dunk. The UN inspection isn't even complete.

If by his own citizens, you mean a bunch of radical Sunni's who we spent 10 years trying to eradicate from Iraq, then sure he has. It's a civil war, why should we be part of it?

My point?!?! You just said what if this stuff falls into the wrong hands?! It's not as if Assad is holding the only chemist in the world who can create it. He has 1,000 tons of chemical compounds. By most accounts, the vast majority of it won't even be targeted because of the danger that blowing it up presents to the surrounding population. And we aren't going to topple the regime and kill Assad...so what exactly are we going to do?

The UN inspection was taken 2 weeks after the incident.

\Giving Assad time to hide a lot of the evidence,

It could take several weeks to process giving Assad time to move the targets.

Sounds to me your more interested in this nut cases welfare.

Sounds to me you aren't interested in the truth. HYPOTHETICALLY, if it came out that Assad DIDN'T use the chemical weapons, what would your response be?

But innocent people dying is just a "part of war" when we're killing them, right?

Kind of like chemical warfare is the worst thing in the world...unless we do it, right? I guess Agent Orange was a fruity drink? We've used depleted uranium in Iraq. But let's sit back, watch 100,000 people die in a civil war and then draw the red line when 1,000 die via some sarin gas. That -17 trillion dollars is really burning a hole in our pocket, we need a new war. Eisenhower didn't have a clue. What military industrial complex? Korea, Vietnam, Cold War, Desert Storm, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya....we've had a constant conflict going on since Eisenhower made that speech. Tomahawk missile= 1.5 million a piece. Like I said, lots of Raytheon shareholders in Congress.

There was never any WMD's found to justify the war in Irag.
