    No one wants War but, no one wants chemical warfare either. I like what Kerry proposed. I say get the weapons, destroy all chemical weapons as was agreed in the Geneva Convention long ago. Then after weapons retrieved strike Syria on 911. Sorry but, you did not play fair killing all those children so, you reap what you sow.

    There will be no strike on Syria! With Assad agreeing to surrender his chemical weapons to the International Community, the greatest reason will be eliminated. The United States needs to focus it's energies on making a legal case against Assad before the World Court and then, the United Nations and not keep playing the International Vigilante role. People keep saying we will loose credibility if we don't attack. Rubbish! We gain credibility when we act in a civilized manner and debate the case in the United Nations and World Court.

    Have thousands of Syrians been leaving Syria due to fear of chemical attacks? How does this factor into the deliberation over U.S. strikes against Syria? Do we know that it is the Syrian government behind the use of chemical warfare in Syria? Who else has the capability to have ordered the chemical strikes within Syria?

    Americans are tired of war but more importantly, we don't trust our own government to tell us the truth about anything and we can't trust them to do the right thing. The government no longer has the interests of "We the people" in mind when they do things.

    If countrys around Syria are outraged over what Assad has done then why dont they go in and take over with their military. All the muslem countrys around Syria have weapons. Let them take Assad down. Why are we the police for the world. Its terrible and tragic, but why doesnt Obama tell the muslem world to take care of their own.
    People are tired of military action. Turkey has the power to take Assad down, why cant they go in. If the muslem world wants us to do something then they should pay us, why should the US public tax payers pay for the hit.
