    Also, Carville is undoubtedly generally a left-wing nut, but I still think in this case you picked one of the few cases where he was just stating an indisputable fact. There's so much material to choose from Nick--you chose wrong. :)

    Nick: In principle, I agree with you, but in this case I think Carville is referring to why the polls say 70% of the American public is against intervention. Sure, people have a variety of reasons, but the majority are simply war weary and the most of those point to the previous administration and faulty intelligence. This administration is wary of making those mistakes and seems to be treading carefully--some would say too carefully (Google Rumsfeld's recent comments).

    Bill: Everyone knows there are a mixture of players in the opposition, but Beck would have you believing with a tightly edited clip that is the whole story.

    I'm not sure if we should intervene, but I'm leaning towards intervening with medical supplies and food for the refugees. That's about it. If they want to get rid of Deadly Toxic Chemicals, they can't start right here with Monsato.

    The US hold almost half of the worlds weaponry, and we've become the patsy everyone goes to when they need our Muscle and we immediately start beating our chest. I'm beginning to wonder if any other nations besides the US and Britain even read the Peace Treaty anymore?

    Anywho, when McCain decides to take an unannounced trip to Syria to meet with 'rebels', and two wanted terrorists show up in the picture with him, that might be a subtle clue that not all Syrians are Rebel Freedom Fighters trying to overthrow Assad. They're there for something else.

    I just think it's lame. Using his logic, each new administration should get a free pass on policy (foreign or domestic) based on the previous administration's actions.

    That's not what Carville's saying. People are not eager for us to get involved in Syria because they are war weary. Some would say Bush had a lot to do with the Iraq War lasting as long as it did (and for getting us there in the first place based on erroneous information).

    Okay, Matt. I'll give you the Iraq war was recently ended. But, c'mon. At what point does this president accept responsibility for his own foreign agenda (or lack thereof). Going around saying "I'm sorry" to countries that he felt needed an apology is not exactly a foreign policy.

    He left us with the Iraq War, Nick--it only ended up a couple of years ago (supposedly). Sorry, but it makes sense in this case.

    Really? I'm not a big fan of either president. But, c'mon. Bush has been gone for 5 years. Doesn't this get old at some point?
