    Wars, sanctions, blockades, they just don't work. They hurt the poor, the disenfranchised,..ordinanary citizens, while the dictators, the generals, and their entourage enjoy the good cushy life. Look at Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and North Korea.. who has suffered and is still suffering? Not Castro, or the Ayatollah or that fat guy from N. Korea. The assets we destroy in these countries do not belong to the "Regime"; they belong to the people who will have to replace them after the demise of any regime.

    I would like the news to report on what the news in Russia and China are telling their people. The UN should be the one to act and I would think the Russian and Chinese people would put pressure on their govt to pass the resolution. Yes, I know they both really live in a dictatorship, but are they even informed.

    “America’s not the greatest country in the world anymore.” We used to be...This quote is stolen from "The Newsroom" but it hits so close that it should be played in every congressional session, I mean, whenever you can get them into DC...When they're not on vacation or passing bills they have to pass first to read them...You mean to tell me we literally put a person on the moon? And, this is the best we have running this Country now? For shame.

    Wolf, you and Amanpoir and others are sitting in the studio there going on about SYRIA DID IT, but what happens if the UN says they have no evidence that Syria did it and in fact the rebels did it? are you all not jumping to conclusions far too early? The rebels of al Qaida used chemical weapons in Aleppo in March this year and killed 16 Syrian soldiers why have none of you mentioned that fact? are you operating censorship?

    As the President was saying sometime you cant just act over selfish interests, but moral issues gotta be high on interest chart also. There is no way in the 21st century human beings should have to endure torchuring chemical weapons....little kids with skin peeling off their body. How quickly do we forget history and what the Jews had to suffer while the world stood bye. The World has to say Never Again and mean it. It sends a message to Americas friends and enemies that we are good people and will do all we can to advance goodness which will encourage others around the world to do the same and ultimately have Americas best interest at hand

    Brook Baldwin continuously seems to have a problem addressing our Pres. As Pres. Obama and not Mr. OBAMA and she's getting down right nasty with people.
