Would he not have to start with some credibility in order to lose some. I am hoping we sit this one out. We have already endured enough war for a while. If one hostile group of rebels wants to clash with another set of extremist, go for it. Let them kill each other off. At least they are leaving us alone and thinning their own numbers. If congress is smart, which they are not, they will say no, thus making it Obama's war. Obama has already made up his mind, he just doesn't want to shoulder the blame for any retaliation he and his ilk have planned. They aren't even sure which group was responsible for the gassing. Any whacked out group that would strap bombs to their family members and suicide bomb places is just as apt to gas a group of their own to bring in help for their cause.
