    The fact is that 'rightwingers' are very much split on this, as is most everyone.

    From this article it seems Obama is doing more harm than good, continuing to rely on theory rather than reality and what he read in a book once.

    All that money and the Americans come out looking like idiots, though that was foreordained with John Kerry at the helm. The S of S went from Tweedledum to tweedledummer.

    With our debt we should not be spending foreign "aid" used to bribe foreign governments and not spending a deficit to purchase fake allegiances.

    What problem do you see here and what do you suggest as a solution?

    Seriously?

    As opposed to what?

    Don't even make me start throwing names out there, because I can give you more than 200.

    Hell, your boy Jessie Jackson Jr and his Wife are going away for 20 years for stealing.

    Geez... Had it been a republican it would have been headline news... No it's just another criminal democrat getting a 20 year bit.

    If said aid pushes along the removal of Assad and helps usher in any semblance of stability, it could prove to be a investment well worth the price tag.

    I said 3 years ago this "Arab Spring" nonsense would just introduce Sharia Law... Everyone told me I was wrong.

    These cats cant even clean up their own mess and people question the US and their alleged interference. Seriously?

    I don't know what to say or what position to take but all this **** is insane and Obama plays a role here.

    Yeah, Syria falls within the Arab Spring category. No matter what you label it, ousting a genocidal despot whose actions have managed to further destabilize an already volatile portion of the world is a prospect that would be welcomed by the international community at large.

    The fact is that 'rightwingers' are very much split on this, as is most everyone.
    Aside from a handful of oddball like Rand Paul, the only split on the right is over how much aid to give the syrian rebels


    From this article it seems Obama is doing more harm than good, continuing to rely on theory rather than reality and what he read in a book once.

    Nothing funnier than seeing the right complain the Obama is spending too much money on the syrians *and* complain that he's not spending enough on them
