Not Another War!

It looks like Obama may institute air action against Syria. (Stories here and here). Since Congress gave its war making authority to the President, there is nothing it can do. It has always been interesting to me that most of the major conflicts this country ends up fighting are initiated by Democratic presidents. What makes Democrats so blood-thirsty?

I don't see any upside to this intervention, and see some serious downsides, including needlessly antagonizing Russia, that we would be providing de facto support for Al Qaeda and the Wahhabi wing of Islam, and that the result will be horrendous ethnic and religious purges should the "rebels" win.
