John Hawkins takes a poll of 46 right-wing bloggers, including me, concerning the proposed military adventure in Syria:
#1) Do you think Congress should give Obama authorization for ANY sort of military operation in Syria?
No: 84.8% (39 votes)
Yes: 15.2% (7 votes)
#2) If it were proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that Assad used chemical weapons in Syria, would you support bombing Syria?
No: 76.1% (35 votes)
Yes: 23.9% (11 votes)
It’s informative to see that the warmongering Right is considerably less enthusiastic about the use of military force than either the antiwar Left or the Nobel Peace Prize winner in the White House. But fortunately, the United States has an elected leader it can trust to lead it into war.

“We have been very clear to the Assad regime but also to other players
on the ground that a red line for us is, we start seeing a whole bunch
of weapons moving around or being utilized.”
