Half a billion dollars in taxpayer dollars is being sought to interject ourselves in the Syrian conflict. This means more American treasure sent to another country’s civil war, and more American weapons that will likely eventually wind up in the wrong hands.

    As long we allow the Neo-Cons to dictate our international policy we will continue to treat each crisis in each area as the same high stakes poker game and always throw all our chips in all the time, never fold and hope no one calls our bluff. Any poker player will tell you that is the easiest way to go bust.

    how about 1/2 billion for a really cool low priced hospital in a region lacking one!

    How much would it cost to send in a drone with a bomb on it to take out Assad? Would that be cheaper?

    $500,000!!! That would keep Darryl Issa’s muck-raking operation running for about 1.5 days.
