    Syrians--who have spewed hatred against the USA for many decades--now are grumbling about OUR TROOPS not being deployed to SAVE THEM.

    SAVE YOUR GODDAMN SELVES!!!
    Just like WE did.

    In that part of the World, we're damned if we do and damned if we don't. We've helped and saved millions of Muslims and what do we have to show for it? Their hatred.

    No. We don't need to give them anything and especially troops on the ground. We don't know who these people are. Al Qaeda is in there helping the rebels go after Assad. The radicals have just taken over Egypt and it's not in our interests to help Al Qaeda take over Syria. Al Qaeda is our worst enemy. If we go after anybody it should be them.

    They attacked us on 9-11 so we should attack Al Queda. Just like the Japs bombed pearl harbor and they paid an heavy price later.

    Urban warfare is too tricky. These aren't conventional armies dressed in uniforms. How are you supposed to know who is al Qaeda and who is a regular Joe?

    The Army had a nice way of addressing this, kill them all and let God sort it out afterward.

    Interesting article. The Russians are accusing the West of helping the Islamic Radicals and al Qaeda.
    Of course we know Obama knows squat about foreign policy, nor do we know who this Russian leader is, and how much propaganda he's spewing, but this is food for thought.

    West cooperates with Al-Qaeda in Syrian conflict – Communists

    Putin, Putin and Putin.
    Until he loses his mind or dies of old age. Or--more likely--gets poisoned or bumped off.
    He is the perfect mix of the old and the new Russia they like over there.
    Good cop--Bad cop--in one body.

    And with Obama in charge, which one do you think is more accurate about Syria?

    I always suspect Putin of disinformation.
    It was what he was all about in the KGB.
    And using an old communist crony is no surprise.
    I suspect none of us will know what really happens in that area for a while.
    It is the mother lode of intrigue, double-cross and lies and deception. It seeks to suck us in at all times.
    Abandon ANY need for their oil--and cut them loose and sever ties.
    Help Israel guarantee total destruction to enemies if attacked with nuclear weapons.
    That is where Iran is headed--and all they will understand.
    Mutual Assured Destruction is all anyone on this planet understands.

    EUROPE--with a population of 800 million and more wealth than the USA--should help Syria.
