    Senate committee authorizes limited military response in Syria - World News

      No, you're not, and that's probably a good thing. It seems there is little other international support for the strike. France is one that has indicated it would join the US if ti goes ahead.

      A lot of Americans are opposed to it so maybe the government should listen to the people...oh wait...when have they ever really listened to the 'wee' people. I think they need to consider the can of worms they may open if they strike.

          It's a difficult one (If the chemical weapons deal is proven to be true) You would have Al Queda/US/France/Israel/Saudi/Iraq/Afghan on one side and Hezbollah/Iran/Russia/Hamas on the other!

          Al Queda as the good guys?
          Yer Maw!!!!!

              The Freedom muffin...lol.

              As for the French, their reputation has preceded them. Need I say more?

                I had only been in the US for a little over a year when 9/11 happened. I wanted to get on the next plane home, so Al Queda as the good guys is a really scary thought.

                As for the strike, if it occurs, limited action doesn't mean no civilians would be injured or killed in the strike. I believe it's probably inevitable they would. So, while the US feels it has a moral obligation to smack Syria on the back of the hand, who in the end pays the price?

                  I doubt it too that Hamas and Hezbollah would side, but anythings possible Tig.

                  As for the chemical weapons, UK and the US might have sold some, but these countries are capable of developing their own as well, and a little help from their friends....you know, those who have something to gain from helping them, doesn't hurt either. Or maybe it does?
