The pride of the Republicans, Reagan did not seek congressional approval when he attacked any country, the Republican, conservative, tea party wants Pres. Obama to seek Congress’s approval. That’s a double standard, that is the new Republican, Conservative, Tea party way. And that is not democracy.
We should not be the world’s police department or its big brother. Why should this country spend the excessive amounts of money on military hardware such as, missiles, super high-tech jet fighters, more M1 tanks then we need, instead of providing a national health insurance for all, a program that will provide adequate food for the hungry who can’t afford it, have the government, is the employer of last resort, and provide more funds for public schools and higher education through federal funds to invest in this nations future, But most definitely we should not raise funds to push our military weight and force democracy on a nation with a point of a gun! Greatest weapon a nation or a group of people, is the freedom to express themselves through speech, the press, the right of peaceably to assemble, and partition the government for redress of grievances, that is how democracies work. Democracy will grow in a nation who seeks it, like at the start of our great nation, as I said before it will be through freedom of speech, the press, and the ability and freedom to assemble the protest against their government, but not forced upon the people, all that will do will prevent it.
The question is, can we effectively prevent Bashar Hafez al-Assad the President of Syria from using weapons of mass destruction being used on his own people? But on the other hand who will protect the innocent, the children and the elderly, are the innocent ones. I read a report where Hafez al-Assad is moving such WMD into civilian populated areas, how much collateral damage will there be, the elderly, the children, are the innocent ones. So let’s do not kill any more of the innocent ones. So my answer is no, we do not need any military force to strike at the heart of Bashar Hafez al-Assad the President of Syria.
