The American People are OPPOSED to a military intervention in Syria-but The Israeli People are TIRED of waiting for an unobstructed opportunity to seize control of Syrian wealth,Syrian water and Syrian land.Americans don't need to loot Syria-Israelis do.Our government functions in part to do everything humanly possible to benefit Israel.Every year our government does more for rich people,corporations and Israel.Every year our government does less for We The People and has in fact begun to attack us.It will be a very public demonstration of Israel First if Obama decides to go against public opinion and International Law.

They are our governors, not our government.

"Our rulers will become corrupt, our people careless. A single zealot may commence persecutor, and better men be his victims. It can never be too often repeated, that the time for fixing every essential right on a legal basis is while our rulers are honest, and ourselves united. From the conclusion of this war we shall be going downhill. It will not then be necessary to resort every moment to the people for support. They will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded. They will forget themselves, but in the sole faculty of making money, and will never think of uniting to effect a due respect for their rights. The shackles, therefore, which shall not be knocked off at the conclusion of this war, will remain on us long, will be made heavier and heavier, till our rights shall revive or expire in a convulsion."

Thomas Jefferson (Notes on the State of Virginia) 1781

.

"If, then, control of the people over the organs of their government be the measure of their republicanism, and I confess I know no other measure, it must be agreed that our governments have much less of republicanism than ought to have been expected; in other words, that the people have less regular control over their agents, than their rights and their interests require."

Thomas Jefferson in a letter to John Taylor dated May 28, 1816.

You made some good points here.

My understanding is that the Syrian rebels are the ones who used the chemical weapons in Syria, and not Assad. My bet is the chemical weapons used were bought and paid for with U.S.A. support as it is the U.S.A. that is predominantly supporting the rebels and is the driving force behind the Syria war. The U.S.A. is now using the false flag chemical incident to go and bomb Syria to dust ( depleted uranium dust that is.)
