Taking Bets

The Committee on Foreign Relations voted to enter the United States into another Middle Eastern war. Syria will become the next Iraq and Afghanistan as the military first move in with cruise missiles and later decided to “stabilize” the region by sending young men and women to die in yet another desert country. The Senate is expected to vote on the matter next week:

A US Senate panel has approved the use of military force in Syria, in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack.

By 10-7, the Committee on Foreign Relations moved the measure to a full Senate vote, expected next week.

Who wants to bet that the Senate will choose Wednesday, 9/11, to vote on the matter? I think it’s a pretty good possibility.
