I have a little bet going over whether Congress will support President Obama in bombing Syria. My opponent believes that since the Republicans in Congress have opposed just about everything else that Obama has proposed, they will therefore oppose his attacking Syria. I disagree. I feel that in recent history, whenever the rhetoric has reached this level, the U.S. has always ended up attacking another country. In addition, there are very powerful interest groups that want this attack to take place. For these reasons I believe that Congress will authorize the President to launch an assault on Syria. What do you think?
