    Pentagon Canít Afford Syria Operation; Must Seek Additional Funds. Bill Gertz

    "BY: Bill Gertz August 30, 2013 6:02 pm

    The U.S. military, struggling after defense cuts of tens of billions of dollars, will be unable to pay for attacks on Syria from current operating funds and must seek additional money from Congress, according to congressional aides.

    President Barack Obama, meanwhile, said on Friday he has not made a final decision on a military strike against Syria. He sought to play down both the scope and duration of the anticipated punitive missile and bombing campaign."

    If the other countries around Syria were so concerned with the alleged use of gas, then they can take care of it themselves.

    So Obamalama can start a conflict but can't finish one it sounds like. Then why bother?

    Apparently, someone in the white house found out, money doesn't grow on trees.

    Actually, they do know it's made FROM trees.

    Not true, that paper banknotes are "made from trees." United States banknotes are made from cotton-paper (also called "rag paper"), mixed with other fabric fibers like linen and abaca.

    What about the money know as "securities" used to "back" the debt? That's what they'd probably print to back any action against Syria.

    While I backed the actions in Afghanistan and Iraq as valid efforts in the War on Terror, I see no US interest in any action in Syria (or the previous actions, for example, Libya). We seem to be choosing sides in the general struggle by factions for control in the Middle East. Unfortunately, this regime seems to be picking the factions that supported the terrorism.

    When we switched presidents, we switched sides.

    Can hardly tell we switched Presidents.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Only The Constitution Party represents America's conservative Country Class against the progressive Ruling Party of lying, repugnant, and demotic Libertarians, Republicans and Demoncraps.

    See Angelo Codevilla's Spectator (July 2010) essay America's Ruling Party -- And the Perils of Revolution (not the Limbot rip off).

    And some will say "only the Libertarian Party..." or "only the American Conservative Party..." or "only the _______ Party..."

    So keep fracturing the Liberty vote. Real effective.

    I knew that they had no evidence of WMD in Iraq ... did not support that one...and Afghanistan? eh, did not support that one either...the gov't did not sanction bin laden, just tolerated him.

    Well at least those two conflicts solved all the problems over there ... wait...What!? They didn't???

    Secretary of State John Kerry now says that Arab states have offered to pay the full financial costs of an invasion of Syria.

    Hate to quote the Washington ComPost, but here it is:
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...e-2467ba30e5e3

    The war would be "free", except for all of the spilt American blood.

    So what would that make us, mercenaries??
