The smorgasbord of Syria options. Which do you favor?

Good people of the DC forum: you are now the United States Congress.

I have a dozen different options in dealing with the crisis in Syria. You will vote what you prefer.

I'm sure Congress will take our lead.

A pretty exhaustive poll coming.

Keep in mind, these are the options are you are approving of as of now, based on what you know now. You are casting your vote now.

I voted on the assumption that I could trust Obama to lead this effort effectively and that he wouldn't half ass it because he was just doing it to save face. I know, I know, those are some real alternative reality assumptions.

Meanwhile, back in our reality, I'd hold a vote of confidence in Obama as commander-in-chief and vote no instead.

BTW, if I were going to authorize force, I wouldn't handcuff the President by putting a bunch of limits on it like this polls suggests.

None of the above, because it's based on the BIG lie that Assad used chem weapons.

I think the word you're looking for is "secular," not "sectarian."

Assad is definitely sectarian, but to argue he's secular by any Western definition of the word is laughable.

Correct - Mis-typed - but I disagree that Syria is not secular - if the purpose of the rebels is to install an islamic government ruled by the Koran then unless it is a Christian state ruled by the Bible it must be secular

If you recognize that Syria is the arm between Iran and it's Hezbollah sword, then the fact that Syria is secular doesn't really mean much.

As bad as al Qaeda is, an empowered Iran is a bigger threat, IMO. That doesn't mean I want to help al Qaeda though.
