The Syrian government was given a red line and they crossed it with the use of toxins on their own people. And here Obama is pondering over this when it should be a quick boast into Syria and knock their regime away. Of course Obama believes that sending weapons to the rebels will be efficient and successful. Look how Egypt turned out to be while using these tactics. It's time we take our own actions and start acting like the freedom fighting America we are.

I'm just assuming the first round is acceptance.

By sending troops into Syria we would be spending money we don't have. Right now we are trillions of dollars in debt and he last thing we need is for that number to increase. We have been in to many wars already in the bast 20 years. If you look at government spending we spend an ungodly amount of money on our military, money that could be used back home. Also when has the United States sending troops to other countries helped them? Not very often it just makes more and more war.

Then what do you suggest? We pull a Egypt and send them guns, missiles, and tanks. Oh yeah good idea, so when they win the battle against Syria they can go off on us. Sounds like a horrible plan! We need to conquer the Middle East. Every last bit of it minus Israel. Go on a full stream of attacks from Egypt to Iran. Otherwise the cycle shall contine. More radicals running around like crazy people firing at other Muslims then Americans. We have to handle this ourselves just like we had to handle the Nazis and Germany. Its time we end this B.S. and go take control of Syria and its Islamic partners. We need to do this now, it will be worth the money...oh and BTW, we just need to cut the stupid stimulus spendings Obama's throwing out, then maybe we we can send a hell fire out their. Trust me, if we want to keep Americans and the world safe, its time to take down the Islamic regimes and establish a free region like America. That is our job, that is what Washington said, we will be here for those that need us, for we were rebels and we won independence...so we shall help those who seek independence. In this case the Catholics, the Jews, the non-radical Muslims out their in the Mid-East. The rebels are radicals too, so i don't support them, but nor do i support the Syrian crazies. Its time to take matter into our own hands.

First of all you have to realize that we would not be in danger if Syria or any other country in that region had missiles and tanks. We live across a huge ocean and can easily block any
Incoming missiles. Now what you said about conquering the Middle East is ridiculous. We are not in a period of time where countries just go out and conquer other countries, this isn't Ancient Rome. We also stand little to know chance conquering such a large area. Look at what happens when you try and fight a war on enemy soil. Vietnam, we sent huge amounts of soldiers in yet still were forced to retreat out of the country.

What do you think would happen if the U.S. just decided to go and try to conquer the Middle East? Other countries would attack us and create WWIII. Most countries would fight against the U.S. because of how large a debt we owe. You also talk about sending a hellfire out to bomb Syria. This would also result in a world war that we could not win. You have to realize that people in the Middle East have no interest in forming a government like ours, what if china invaded the U.S and decided that we would be better as a communist country? Would we just blindly accept? No, the same goes for middle eastern countries.

In the end sending troops to Syria is just putting us further in debt to other countries. We would not accomplish anything and could hurt relations with countries around the world.
