[h=2]Britain is planning to join forces with America and launch military action against Syria within days[/h]

Royal Navy vessels are being readied to take part in a possible series of cruise missile strikes, alongside the United States, as military commanders finalise a list of potential targets.

Government sources said talks between the Prime Minister and international leaders, including Barack Obama, would continue, but that any military action that was agreed could begin within the next week.

Congressional approval?

Can't wait to see the cities filled with protesters waving their Obama War Monger banners... just as they did with Clinton and The Balkans. Oh! Right. That didn't happen... instead we had floods of protesters protesting to have America enter a conflict that was in incompetent Europe's backyard and wasn't in the US's national interest.

Why not try UN sanctions for 12-years? Set up a no-fly zone? Send in UN Peacekeepers... Or waving a wieldy finger at Basher? Why doesn't Obama go there and talk to Basher without preconditions? Why jump into a war, straight into bombing Saddam's old buddy and innocent civilians when there are so many stereotypical Lib options on the table?

Where is Michael Moore bad mouthing Obama and showing film of happy Syrian kids flying kites in Basher's Eden... just as he had propagandized for Saddam?

Where is our ever shrinking president? Is he AWOL just like Benghazi?

I think any leader who would use chemical weapons on civilians intentionally deserves a cruise missle suppository.

You're missing the point, the Left was totally against Iraq.....right after they voted for it. Now's their chance to show us how it's done. How it's done is obvious exactly the way Bush would have done it, making the Left the biggest hypocites in the galaxy.

Lets see.... Iraq was a full scale invasion and declaration of war...

Syria if it happens.. is shooting a few cruise missiles and maybe some bombers over Syria..

Hardly the same is it..

But dont let your own hypocrisy get in the way!

There has yet to be conclusive evidence as to who did this attack.

Yes, if he really did do it. I think chemical weapons are so inhumane and difficult to use they are really not that effective, they are used simply for terror.

How do you expect to set up a no fly zone without destroying their anti-aircraft weapons with missiles first?

For my good dead for the day, I am going to teach you a very complex, hard to understand truth: different things are different. Expecting the same reaction to different events is pretty silly.

Who is this "left" guy who voted for Iraq? Why do his actions have anything to do with how I may react to a different event? Why do you so completely fail to understand what hypocrisy is?

So, when Obama air raids villages, you're going to speak out? Demand a war crimes trial?

Look at it as defending human life. The missles wont intentionally aimed at civilians.
