Comment: More hacking at the leaves, rather than the root.

More hacking at the leaves, rather than the root.

The bulk of this debate was about evidence of a chemical attack. Who cares if it was chemical or not? It's totally irrelevant!

Nobody made that point.

Not even our hero who voted for Obama and now is in the process of awakening made that point.

She got close though, when she was saying that IT IS NOT THE UNITED STATES' duty or responsibility to punish other countries.

That is close to the main point. There's something called national sovereignty. Would we have appreciated it after the BATF burned over 70 men, women and children at Waco if a foreign country would have dropped bombs on the U.S.?

Or take the rampant abuses and violations of our human rights being perpetuated RIGHT NOW by the Obama administration. Would we appreciate bombs being dropped on our cities for trying to teach us a lesson in human rights? Well, if it was Washington DC, many may make an exception...

The point is, debating evidence is a waste of time. We obviously CANNOT trust what our government says and cannot trust what the U.N. says. We have to live by principle and morality.

And when our pathological lying government says we have to bomb them to stand up for the innocent, we must know THEY ARE LYING! And even if they were telling the truth, we must recognize that it's the Syrian people's problem, not ours. Just as our rogue criminal government is our problem.

Instead of dealing with the mote in Syria's eye, we must remove the beam from our own eye, and cleanse the inner vessel, even the head of our government.
