[quote:LADY ENIGMA:MV8yMzQ1NzI0XzQwMDUzMjkyXzZGNEU5RkQ1] More from the same interview...love the Hallmark comment! "ALAN GRAYSON: As one of my colleagues said, if you want to send a message, use Hallmark, not missiles. I think that logic applies here. Listen, we have to stop thinking in terms of messages and start thinking about, what is our responsibility as a country? We have a responsibility to 20 million Americans who are looking for full-time work. We have a responsibility to 40 million Americans who can't see a doctor when they're sick. When my constituents in Central Florida hear that we might spend a billion dollars on this strike, they're appalled. The country is up in arms about even the possibility of this. We set up a Web site called dontattacksyria.com. Within a short time, 50,000 people have already signed our petition against the resolution. When I talk to other members, I find that the e-mails and the letters and the phone calls to their offices are running 100-1 against this resolution. And there's having -- there's an effect. According to the recent whipping numbers, 20 members are in favor of this, 183 against. Why? Because the American public understands it's simply not our problem." http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/world/july-dec13/grayson_09-05.html [/quote]
Watched this interview today with Jeffrey Brown/PBS and Alan Grayson who is dead set against military action in Syria. If you have a few minutes, watch the video, it is excellent! He blasts Obama and the whole red line credibility excuse.
"REP. ALAN GRAYSON, D-Fla.: Several reasons.
First, it's not our responsibility. It's not our responsibility to act unilaterally. Secondly, it's not going to do any good. It's not going to change the regime. It's not going to end the civil war. It's not even going prevent a new strike and use of chemical warfare.
Third, it's expensive, and, fourth, it's dangerous. It could easily spin out of control."
