Democrats Face Divide Over a Strike On Syria
TIME (blog)
(WASHINGTON) — President Barack Obama's pursuit of a military strike in Syria has put congressional Democrats and party leaders around the country in a tough spot.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is what runs through my mind. Why can we not teach peace, appreciation and respect for others, helpfulness and understanding and community team building with as much determination as war, hate, distrust and self-defense?

 

We went to war and many countries around the world that didn't get hit by terrorist on 9/11 went with us because we 3,000+ people in the US got hit, not because it happened to them, but just because it seemed to be the right thing to do in response to such a horrible murder. Perhaps a less direct responsive may have taken longer but may have worked better to bring peace and change . I don't know.

 

I think this bloody mess might be a sad state the dominantly Islamic nations may have to go through if the religion continues to idealize "martyrs" just as we idealize our war "heroes" and they try to literally fight over which Islamic group has power and they cannot share power. Having said that it still might not be wise or right for the rest of the world to sit and watch the blood bath and try to contain and possible prevent more bloodshed even if this cannot be truly stopped without time for real inner change.

 

Other outside groups and nations ARE involved already and are there fighting to get a peace of the action when the dust settles. Had intervention been offered when it was requested by the protesters when things went deadly that might have made a tremendous difference because the regime seems embolden with time. I know at the time we needed Russia as passage for supplies to Afghanistan and they would not agree with intervention in support of the majority group standing against the small minority led regime. This seems to say that Russia is not a friend of the Syrian people, they are only a friend to the minority led Government.

 

But then we say to the Israel not to build in the West Bank where the Jewish are a minority and the world has not recognized their have claim to the West Bank. WE do not directly intervene to help the Palestinian people. The two groups usually stop short of ongoing bloodbaths and thus far the Israeli have not gassed and directly carried out deliberate shelling of whole neighborhoods in an effort to totally wipe them off the map. They also have not murdered the Palestinians in mass just because they often rightfully, protest their situation there and call for the settlers to stop building in their land..Having said that both Russia and we here in the US should question the rightness of supporting any groups that willfully oppress their own citizens freedoms, even if it happens at home in the US. These groups are not migrants, they are in their own land and should have full protected rights and input in their own land and over their own lives if they have not harmed the community with violence or dishonestly. Even legal migrant workers should have fair rights and protections.

 

I think this shows the strongest argument for why separation of church and state came about and why religious freedom is so important. Without those rules  people seem to be willing to kill or force out, those that they cannot force to believe as they believe or maybe just don't want in their group.

 

The US went to a war with undefined borders and this was declared by Bush as the "War on Terror".....Obama did not say he would not fight terror and continues this war ...…What is happening in Syria is certainly terror. Many nations joined together for Afghanistan with back and forth gains and losses. A smaller group joined together to fight Iraq even though Iraq never shot a single shot before we went there. Now 100,000+ are dead in Syria, gases banned by the world are being used on the citizens in Syria and the  world reaction is to sit and watch. Russia and China's modern motives come into strong focus as the Syrian murdering regime continues the slaughter with China, Russia and Iran's blessing and support. We have to question if the West was foolish to see good in these countries or if we only saw gold? 

 

Spying on the world and going to war based on lies over the years has not helped our staus in the world....That is more important than Obama's status in the world, because we will all be here when he has moved on. The world watched as both parties unified in a cracked down and oppression of the increasingly growing Occupy Movement that jacked up the Tea Party efforts with mild civil disobedience to gain attention and like the Arabs refused to go home and stop till change happened or at least more citizens began to care. Both parties and the White House got along with the idea of setting laws to discourage real effective protest behaviors that challenge the system. Those who spoke out were locked up faster than those who ruin the economy of the world. The world watched and noticed even while many American citizens did not and the world saw that too...…The people of the world were not impressed, but government and corporate oppression was embolden all over the world.

 

These are my thoughts today, Time Magazine offers some others:

 

Excerpt:

“We’ve been to this dance before and we saw what happened in Iraq,” said Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa, who says he is leaning against supporting the resolution. “And I have a solemn responsibility to understand what the risks are before I vote to authorize the use of force. What’s the risk to the US and the president’s standing in the world if the Congress votes against the resolution?”

Jorge Garcia was brought to the country by an undocumented relative when he was 10.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
If we wanted to Deport Trump to his mother’s country of origin many would refuse him as Scotland was the Country that had 100,000 signatures asking the British Isles not to allow him there should he become president... I watched the parliament debate the issue for several hours one afternoon last year....pitiful portrayal of the man that would become our now famous Sh... Hole labeling, belittling, family ripping President.... irony is that online the nick SH seems to be taking hold... that is some-places it is being increasingly attached to nearly anyone supporting Trump. I saw Tim SH Cotton ... SH Trump and so forth... could be Trump just created his own most sticking nickname and image.... by extension the GOP may need to worry this becomes a party title... Party of the Good Old SHs.... “GOSH”... Instead or GOP..this article speaks as to why the title is being earned!

The most worthless overcooked topic is President Sh**** hole in the opinion of the over half of America voters that didn’t vote for him in the first place as well as much of the world as well! The underhanded stuff the GOP is getting President Sh***hole to sign are the most undercooked topics out there!

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Sessions is a name associated with cold hearted punishment and condemnation more than justice.... It is a good thing he is a cowardly man or he might have been a mass murder or rapist with his cold hearted disregard for the struggles of others and inability to feel remorse or empathy for others. Surely a man deserving of Trump’s latest “SH” nickname as title earned.
