I watched President Barack Obama in Sweden speaking about the red line in Syria. Now he says he did not say it was his red line but the world's red line that they signed into the Geneva Convention.

This guy never takes blame for anything.

Stop and think. The last five years shows he has no faults.

If he is right, then it's the world's problem not the United States'. Go to the United Nations and plead your case that gassing people in Syria is the United Nations' problem, not ours.

If Congress votes to let this president bomb Syria, be ready for the unemployment rate among college graduates to immediately drop, because he will need to reinstate the draft. That means men and women, since women are now allowed to serve on the front line.

Serving a tour in Vietnam makes me suspicious of all politicians. They sit here at home while we're on the front lines, protecting them.
