Believe it or not, there’s actually someone in Washington who knows when to hold ‘em and knows when to fold ‘em……The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is meeting this week, to hear arguments from Obama officials about why they think it’s necessary to launch a military strike against Syria. The hearings have gotten pretty tense at times. But there was one lighthearted moment when a photographer caught John McCain, during a dull stretch, playing video poker on his cell phone. McCain tweeted that it was a big scandal: he was not only caught playing poker, but worst of all, he lost. Personally, I don’t hold it against him for playing a little poker instead of listening to some of those jokers. In fact, some might argue that if Barack Obama had just been a better poker player, he would’ve made a lot fewer foreign policy mistakes like the ones that have led to the Syria crisis. If nothing else, at least a poker player would’ve known that you never up the ante when you’re lousy at bluffing.

    WWI- Chemical weapons and 34 million casualties
    WWII- Genocide and 85 million dead
    Kovavo/Bosnia- Genocide
    Iraq- Chemical weapons and genocide
    Syria- Chemical weapons and genocide
    Iran- pending nuclear weapons

    Does anyone believe a good result will come out of not stopping this issue now?
