"They support the strike," Kerry said after meeting with Saudi foreign minister Saud al-Faisal.

    Of course Saudi Arabia is ok with the US killing innocent Syrians. Saudi Arabia funds Al Qaeda and is part of the radical islamists that want to take over the middle east.

    Common sense obviously is not what the WH is using, as the Syrian government was winning the war against the Al Qaeda rebels so they had no reason to use chemical weapons. On the other hand the Al Qaeda rebels have no problem killing people in anyway they can. Just remember 12 years almost to this on 911, Al Qaeda killed thousands of innocent Americans at the New York Trade Center Twin Towers. Now Obama, McCain, Boehner and Kerry is on the side of the Al Qaeda killers. Our leaders are committing an act of treason against the American people and the people of Syria.

    THEN let them go to war with syria-or pay for the war if it happens--these people are laughing at us–us the US to unite all the middle east. Iraq vs. Iran, ok war with Iraq--Syria has a civil war-us the US then everyone in the middle east will have a common enemy.

    Saddam killed over one half a million Iranians and citizens of his own country and the United Nations, the EU and Arab League did not see a valid reason to get involved. In fact when Bush went into Iraq the some worlds leaders and the UN said the world could wait another twelve years to stabilize Iraq before any military action

    If a strike on Syria is necessary, then let the EU, United Nations and the Arab League stand-up and take the lead. There is no valid reason for the U.S. to get involved.
