    There is no evidence pointing to that. Why would Assad after destroying his country, deploying troops all over, destroying parts of his infanstructure, what makes you think all the sudden the idea of "hey lest team up and invade Israel" will pop up in his head?
    No one is going to invade Israel soon especially Assad...
    No evidence points to these accusations you are making.
    Assad is just another tyrant which will sometime fall as a result to the Arab Spring
    There's no way to determine to what extent Syria's infrastructure will be damaged; not until the dust settles.

    A small scale civil war make be just what Assad needs to battle harden his army and prepare them for a full scale campaign

    Before we start thinking in absolute terms, claiming that there's no way that it could happen. In 1978, Vietnam invaded Kampuchea and then Cambodia. That was only three years after they'd waged a very costly 20 year war.

    It's very offensive to use photos of dead American servicemen to make a political point.

    Yes much of its pretty destroyed already.

    Any proof that he is actually thinking this way?

    Im not saying there is no way it could happen im saying there is no proof that anyone is planning such a thing

    In 1978, Vietnam invaded Kampuchea and then Cambodia. That was only three years after they'd waged a very costly 20 year war.
    Yes. But it wasnt just out of the blue. There was evidence.

    Call it what you want, it's still trashy as hell to use a photo of dead American servicemen to make your point.

    I think that's an over-estimation.



    Any proof that he is actually thinking this way?
    Any proof that he's not? No, there isn't and therein lies my point.



    Im not saying there is no way it could happen im saying there is no proof that anyone is planning such a thing
    The old saying, "prepare for the worst and hope for the best", comes to mind right now.


    Yes. But it wasnt just out of the blue. There was evidence.
    What evidence?

    It's the photo of caskets of dead American service members. Very offensive to use that in a post as debate ammo. Most folks here--Demsocialist being one of them IMO--are smart enough to get the point across without using such photography.
