War with Syria courtesy Dear Leader Obama

I am still gobsmacked at the decision of the Senate Committee to give the green light to attack Syria.
There are so many distinct variables, most of which come from the inability to separate jihadists from the less dangerous "moderate" Muslims that to do anything but sit on our hands is folly of Biblical proportions.

Our politicians, especially Republicans have rushed to Obama's side, fawning sycophants who cannot wait to say we agree with you, oh great one.

It makes no sense to arm and equip those who are not just our potential enemies but have stated they want to kill us.  With Al-Qaeda as one of the primary movers in Syria it behooves us to tread lightly and not do anything that would have the potential to come back and chew our asses off, yet the administration insists, and which John McCain has strongly advocated that the rebels are secular and moderate, guaranteed.

Supporting the rebels is going to be the biggest mistake we have made in the Middle East in decades.  Our belief that we can send in a few cruise missiles and then wave goodbye smacks of Clintonian foreign policy; think Kosovo and the ensuing genocide in Serbia.  Not to mention the wayward rocket that slammed into the Chinese Embassy, killing innocents.  Do we really need to circle the wagons again when the option would save us from embarrassment and shame?

Pray for a peaceful or diplomatic out from this misadventure, we cannot afford, both financially and morally to do what is wrong while ignoring what is right.

Now we are fighting al qaeda's war. Unbelievable.
BREAKING: Senate panel approves resolution giving Obama authority to use military force against Syria

This could not have happened without RINO support:
On Tuesday, some Republicans, including House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, lent their support to a limited attack on the Syrian government for using poison gas against rebels outside the Syrian capital Aug. 21.

The resolution would limit American involvement to two months, with a possible one-month extension, and would bar the use of ground forces. The administration has said punishing Syria would not mean putting “boots on the ground.”

“The president is not asking you to go to war,” Kerry told Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. and a skeptic of a Syria strike, during a hearing of the Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., debate whether America should launch military strikes against Syria.

At Wednesday’s House hearing, Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, expressed deep reservations and asked whether Obama would have “bothered to come to Congress” if the British Parliament had passed its own resolution supporting military force. Parliament rejected it instead.
