    Accepted Solution

    President Obama seems to me to be aging quickly and his face seems very stressed. I think he would to be passive if possible but is being forced to respond to the situation. I believe our presidents sometimes have to go against their personal beliefs for the good of country. As a citizen that didn't vote for him, I will support him if he makes the right moral decision.

    I agree.
    I think he's had more restraint than any other. Before the war, it looked like he be able to get along with Assad who may deal with Israel. Very disappointed he ventured/sided with those saying "Assad must go", but unlike 'some', kept hands pretty clean of sending weapons and funds to end in hands of terrorist in Syria, despite openly asking for a declaration of war (denied, as he'd have predicted). - As well as keeping US warplanes outside of Syria - so no bridges burnt. Moving on, next up:
    Should US Congress act to declare war?
