Rick Jensen: Obama’s war protesters?
Thank you for taking a minute from watching the omnipresent anti-war protests to read this column. Thousands of people from San Francisco to Long Island joined arm in arm, singing “Give Peace a Chance.” Passionate stirring of the masses with outrage that our President would...

James Palmer: Crossing paths with James Foley in Syria
Reuters I prefer to work alone because I’ve found from past experience it’s just easier. Still, it was hard not to cross paths with other journalists in Syria in the late summer and fall of 2012, where you were free to roam without government restrictions. I first saw James...

Cookie & Steven V. Roberts; Why Obama failed on Syria
While a lot about Syria remains unsettled, one fact is clear: President Obama has failed to convince the public, and the Congress, that attacking the Assad regime is a good idea. The administration has generated a flood of briefings and hearings, speeches and interviews, tweets and...

Michael Reagan: A case of national whiplash
Did you see the hopeful breaking news about Syria? "Russia takes control of Syrian chemical weapons." That was the headline I saw on the Daily Kos website. The story quoted Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, announcing that Syria's chemical weapons, which had been consolidated...

Joe Gandelman: Is the Republican party now the party of peace?
Does "GOP" now stand for the "Grand Old Peace" party? You'd think so if you listen to many Republican conservative talkers, pundits, and nervous politicians holding their fingers up to the wind, then holding up a certain finger to the White House. There has been a shift in the way...

David Rohde: A Syria gift Obama must use wisely
By all accounts, Secretary of State John Kerry's proposal on Monday to place Syria's chemical weapons under international control was just Kerry being Kerry. The loquacious former Massachusetts senator was making a rhetorical point -- not a carefully crafted peace proposal. Whatever...

Diana West: Obama’s ‘credibility’ is not worth Americans dying for
I would like to pause for a moment as the United States weighs going to war to make the world safe for President Obama’s "credibility" to note that the Department of Defense announced the deaths of four American soldiers in separate incidents last week in Afghanistan. We...

Doug Patton: Most embarrassing president in my lifetime
Barack Obama is, without question, the most embarrassing president of my lifetime — and that is saying something, since my life so far has encompassed 12 presidencies, some of which have brought a lot of embarrassment to the nation. Even Richard Nixon, with his Watergate scandal,...

"Never has the use of violence brought peace in its wake. War begets war, violence begets violence." So said Pope Francis, addressing the crowd on Sunday in the Vatican City's St. Peter's Square. He was speaking about the crisis in Syria, as President Barack Obama ramped up a planned...

Letter: Self-proclaimed 'peacenik' approves of Syria strike
An open letter to my Congressional representatives: I am a long-time anti-war peacenik pacifist. I was against the Vietnam War, and I thought invading Afghanistan was a mistake. A more targeted, intelligent use of lethal force against those who attacked us on 9/11 would have been...

Donald Kaul: There we go again
So we're going to war in Syria. Maybe. We won't know for sure until Congress gets back from the vacation it's taking from its other vacations. One can live in hope, however. What would autumn be without a fresh war in the Middle East to occupy us? I know, the Obama-Bush administration...
