What I mean is, (sigh)
er, I ..
(Oh boy, this is soo hard!)
Ok, ok, I’ll whisper it:
I support John Boehner on this one.
That was rough…
I doubt I’ll ever have occasion to say something positive about the Republican House Speaker again!
America should NOT get involved in Syria. (If we wanted to act, we SHOULD HAVE GONE IN LONG before this.) Or at least, WAIT on the intelligence. BE SURE the rebels are NOT conning us to enter that conflict!
We too had a bloody Civil War (1861-1865). Humans were fighting to keep other humans as slaves. For this: 600-thousand soldiers died and much of the South’s infrastructure was destroyed!
The remarkable thing about the U.S. Civil War? Foreign powers DID NOT intervene
Yes, sometimes the scenes are horrific and can’t bear watching…
But think what you’d see if TV could capture LIVE images of the Civil War.
America: Be prepared for the consequences if you/we go into Syria. There are always consequences – but we tend NOT to expect any! We act … then RE-act to the consequences …
We always expect the victims to accept our air strikes and give us a medal for it!
America please RETIRE – find new cops to police the world! Send our cops to Detroit, instead…
The cost of just those airstrikes can:
Put Detroit BACK on its feet?
Supply personnel and equipment to fight those wildfires in the West that are destroying homes and lives?
Could buy a dream home for me – and you-and you…?
Could provide scholarships for thousands of American kids?
Could provide healthcare for an entire state for one year – or longer?
Could fix many of our crumbling roads/bridges?
Yet we’ll NOT hesitate to blow money/resources on air strikes in Syria – an act that may only add fire to the gasoline that is the Middle east – with NO guarantee of a positive outcome.
It’s not about prudence, it’s about saber-rattling.
And when it comes to er, sabers…we think we have the biggest of them all.
We FORGET the King of Sabers, Mr Saber-Toothed Tiger sent herds of mammoths stampeding. But today it is EXTINCT!
Damned If We Do SYRIA – Damned If We Don’t!
I say: DON’T!
