    Should the Russians be trusted to rid Syria of chemical weapons? What kind of question is that? Russia is not unilaterally being assigned the job. The UN will handle the task and it will be preformed under a coalition of forces. These false talking points are ridiculous. CNN should be ashamed of itself for propagating such foolishness.

    Yes, it is absolutely beyond comprehension that Syria would kill 400 of their own children that this president says is intolerable .. but before he judges another president for allowing children to die horrendous deaths - he should first repent and change the laws in our country allowing 334,000 babies to be killed by induced abortion in such a barbaric method so gross no one could stand to watch.

    The video shown of the 400 children dying such a horrendous death was deplorable - but how would the world judge our country if a video were shown of the 334,000 babies killed in late-term abortions who were still alive when killed - plus the 50 million babies that have been killed through abortions in the United States?

    Wrong is wrong - no matter who does it! God have mercy on our country for babies who have died horrendous deaths!

      Oh my god, get a life and go elsewhere and live it. Unless you want to personally shell out all the cash necessary to support you silly little preconceived judgements then zip it.

    What started out to be a Great return of Crossfire was completely diminished by the vile and verbal hatred of our President of Newt Gingrich. His Disrespect and slanted point of view made the show intolerable to me. He has always been a volatile and questionable politician as to his integrity! So why did you pick him? the rest of the panel are great, honest, respectful, and still have strong points of views with out stooping to the LOWS that t Newt seems to need?

    Iraq War ridiculed U.S. for not finding WMD. Saddam Hussein shifted WMD to Syria prior to U.S. lead invasion to Iraq.Now is coming clear ( it seems) there's a link in August 21, 2013 attacking killing its own people with poison gas.

    Here is my problem with today's talking points-whether you are right or left...the question regarding leadership because the president presented the issue to congress. Why is this the center of the debate? On one hand he is "stuffing it down America's throat" when a decisive measure is made. Then when the President does the right thing by bringing this to congress and the American people, he is regarded as having a lack of leadership. This argument makes no sense and appears to insight confusion on the already stupid public! Why do we listen to this divisive BS? It makes me mad!

    Ms. Cupp keeps running over everyone who attempts to speak, senators, other commentators, everyone! Isn't there a civilized person who could do the job she's doing so poorly?

    Mr. Lieberman, cannot hide his hate towards Russia. It's time for him to retire, his Cold War mentality is outdated. We have to thank Putin for saving our face!

    OMG i am so glad S.E. Cupp is no longer on The Cycle. She clearly does not know what she is talking about and she argues. She doesnt inform, she finds points to disagree with to appear knowledgeable, and then she argues. Wow. Van makes good points, but Cupp needs to find yet another gig. CNN doesnt ussally fumble like this, but did in this case. You need to change from 30 minutes to 15 minutes. I wont watch this show again.

    With so many members of Congress undecided on a strike against Syria, why would anyone think it's an easy decision for the President? Analysts stated he had 3 choices and none of them were good. Now he is asking the opinion of the nation and he's being criticized...if he hadn't, the nation would be angry he didn't ask for their opinion!

      Exactly. The President is criticized for doing nothing in Syria by the entire GOP including Rand Paul back in April , then when he wants to take military action the entire GOP in lock step say no. The President should just say the opposite of what he wants and he will be sure to get it. Nobody should take these people seriously. They change their mind daily.

    Attacking Syria means supporting terrorist.
    None has forgotten Mr Colin Powell lies about Iraq chemical weapons in 2003, where is that file now, It just caused more than 1.5 millions killed in that country which age more than 7000 years so don't repeat that in Syria.

    Attack Syria but never ask again why do people hate you.
