Guns are the evil culprit according to Democrats who eagerly seek to eliminate them. Why don't those same Democrats want to eliminate chemical weapons? We hear every other Syrian argument, punish Assad, retaliate, regime change, for the "children" and on-and-on. But, no mention of eliminating the chemical weapon itself? In fact, the president specifically excluded chemical sites from his target list? Legal guns must be destroyed, but chemical weapons survive? Someone please explain this incongruous dissonance please?

Oh look another anti-liberal strawman... how entertaining!

You are mixing apples and oranges. What happens in Syria is not our problem and we have no business launching a full scale invasion of yet another country, especially when the evidence for such an attack is sorely lacking. The world is not going to let the White House cry wolf again and neither should the American people.

The matter of domestic gun violence here in America is a completely separate issue from what a foreign government may or may not be doing to its own people.

You can file one under "not our problem" and the other one under "Constitutional rights".

Fair enough, but the question is for those who would attack Syria, such as the president. How is it OK to want to eliminate our own guns, yet leave dangerous chemical weapons to the terrorists? And if you think those weapons won't eventually kill American's, you're naive. Sooner or later terrorists will get their hands on those chemicals and kill Americans.

The democrats are coming for our guns mantra is so tired and boring it's laughable.

Tell me something, how many WMD's does the USofA have at the ready?
How many WMD's do we have stashed away somewhere?

How many of those WMD's were around during republican administrations?

This thread is chock full of fail.....

For those who doubt the longevity of chemical weapons and there propensity to reappear, consider where Assad initially obtained those weapons?

USNI Blog » Blog Archive » Iraq Chemical Weapons Moved to Syria Before 2003 Invasion?

Clapper is Obama's guy and he thought Syria's chemicals came from Saddam's Iraq. We know Saddam used chemical weapons, yet Bush was unable to find those weapons? Where did they go? Now, a decade later they show up causing America to consider another war. When will we finally eliminate these weapons? How many crisis must they cause? How much embarrassment and trouble before we eliminate them forever?

Looks like Bush is vindicated after all? Why is it OK for Obama to attack Syria over the very same chemical weapons, but not OK for Bush to attack Iraq? Leftists need to collect their thoughts and get their story straight. Even the media can't hide this failure in common logic.
_________

America has 300M plus legal firearms that Obama and the left scream need to be destroyed, yet not one peep about eliminating Syria's (formerly Iraq's) chemical weapons? How many people can a cupful of chemical gas kill in a subway tunnel? Hundreds? A cupful of liquid isn't difficult to smuggle. Syria (Iraq) has an estimated 100M tons. 100M tons is 430 billion cups, for those curious about threat levels. More than enough to kill every man woman and child in the U.S.
