    Allowing genocide because you say we can't afford to help stop it is one problem. Cutting back on just one of those useless F-35's will pay for nearly all our foreign aid.
    I just wish you were that frugal when your buddy started a war without provocation and kllled 100' sof 1000's of Iraqi's. But that was back when you were a neocon no doubt.

    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.
    Think you're giving yourself a bit too much credence here. I've a feeling that quite a few members of the intelligence community knew of the potential ruling parties in the mix. (I'll assuming you're speaking of the MB)

    No clue as to what that's supposed to mean.

    Obama played the only role possible in the Arab Spring. Standing in opposition to a democratic movement in said region would severely undermine our future interests.

    When was the Middle East stable in our lifetimes and how can you tell one despot from another?

    The United States should never get involved in a land war anywhere. Despite having the best military in the world they always manage to screw it up politically.

    Let whichever despot takes over rule for a while and if he threatens neighbors, hangs gays or stones women then drop a daisy cutter on the insane SOB and his royal palace and be done with it. Repeat as necessary.

    We should have just assassinated Saddam - oh yeah - he had 20 look-a-likes.

    Bomb em all and remind them and every nation that we have bombs and are more than willing to use them.

    No I don't care - sometimes "not caring" is the only option...

    Really.....hows that working out for Egypt, Algeria, Bahrain, Oman and Yemen. All ran by Sunni Led governments backed by the MB.

    Oh its okay for Obama to pick and choose which Genocidal Despot whose actions manages to further destabilize the Entire Region in which you think this is the way to explain.....how we are funding and supporting terrorists.

    I don't see all those on the left calling for Obama to go after Selah of Yemen who has done the same exact thing as Assad. What we are suppose to accept that it is alright for the Sunni Arabs to massacre Christians and Systematically commit genocide upon the Shia? All because they are the lesser of the two evils. Give me a break!

    The instability of the Middle East shouldn't warrant a complete withdrawl and disconnect from the region entirely. Removing Assad generally falls within the interests of the international community at large.
