[quote:LADY ENIGMA:MV8yMzQ1NzI0XzQwMDUzMzYyX0U5MTRFOTJE] And my last for this thread, but the video is the best and has more info. "JEFFREY BROWN: And what happens to the president from your own party if he loses this vote? What are the implications for him, for his stature, for his ability to get things done in the rest of his term? ALAN GRAYSON: With all due respect, that's irrelevant. We cannot decide whether to go to war on the basis of those kind of considerations. It simply doesn't matter. I will tell you this. I think this time would be much better spent for his own future and the rest of his term and for America's that we would start to think about the fact that three weeks from now, there's going to be a government shutdown, and five weeks from now, the government runs out of money when we reach the debt limit. It's appalling to me, appalling to me, that we spend two or three or four weeks debating whether to create a whole new category of war called humanitarian war, rather than dealing with our own problems and trying to solve them." 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."
