I applaud Obama for standing against the use of chemical warfare. However, the memory of the fiasco of WMD's and the 'proof' that Iraq had them stored is still fresh in the minds of many. . . and how irrefutable evidence was presented by the Republican administration. No troops on the ground/ and effective 'action' - what does that look like? (The attack on Khadafi's household?). How transparent can a debate in Congress be? Those of you who travel and have acquaintances in Damascus know how frightened they are of the possibility of a US strike. Are citizens being allowed to leave possible targeted areas - or will the strike be like that on Hiroshima? What is the righteous action in this scenario ? Will Congress represent the will of the people? What is the will of the people?
