    I am talking about Rice and Clinton, McCain, Graham as well as Obama defending these Sunni Rebel Arabs that are out massacring Christians. As well as killing any Shia Arabs. U know which New Dictator for the Sunni will be taking Assad's place once they can drive him out.

    Ok.. We will just have to wait and see what happens. I agree we should not be getting involved in any civil war on any side.

    Libya was an overall resounding success if you compare it to Iraq. If you look at the amount of effort in terms of dollars and lives the United States spent on regime change in Iraq vs Libya, you'll see a clear difference. Iraq also suffers far more terrorism post war than Libya does, Iraq is also much more unstable than Libya is today. And if you look at what the United States got for its blood and money, Iraq has clearly been much less friendly to US interests than Libya has been.

    really? How many American Ambassadors got murdered in Iraq?

    In fact Iraq become a failure when the majority of the troops pulled out, Afghanistan, which Obama claimed was the important war, is also a failure. The US is in retreat and the world knows it.

    Libya will go Islamic, like Egypt, as will Syria. Iraq will go nuclear and so will all those other Islamic States with whom it becomes aligned.

    This is what happens when people elect a know-nothing President whose opinions are better suited to the faculty lounge at a local high school than in the real world.

    It's a failed policy. What does it matter it its an expensive failed policy or a cheap failed policy?

    Good people with good intentions died, and are still dying, while American leaders cut, obfuscate, and run. You can now ask yourself what they died for and whether good men and women would ever defend their country again when such political betrayals consistently await them..

    Libya is no success, and not even if you can compare it to Iraq. The TNC is there in name only. The Berbers will not accept rule by the MB. Also Right now Libya is the Wild Wild West with whats happening there. Which is why the most have pulled their Ambassadors out of the Country. Which doesn't even count AQ resurging like they are all around Africa. As for Iraq.....that's why Kerry is over there warning them to not allow the Iranians to use their Air Space.....huh? Plus the sectarian killing hasn't stopped. The Whole issue with the Kurds has not been dealt with. Plus Maliki is purging the Sunni Arabs any chance he can get and take.

    Also there is no reason to make any excuses for the Sunni Arab Rebels no matter what Countries that Are being given to them by those in the West.

    globalists want every middle eastern country to turn into harmless saudi arabia.

    SA is not that harmless.

    Keep in mind that's where most of the 9/11 hijackers came from and no religion but Islam is allowed to be practiced.

    Re: US provides aid to Syrian rebels

    While I certainly agree that the Obama Administration is guilty of appalling hypocrisy for allocating funds to a foreign civil war overseas while pissing and moaning about the horrors of sequester and budget cuts at home, I really don't have a terribly large problem with the idea of funding the Syrian Opposition in general concept.

    The Assad regime needs to go. I'm not even talking in a strictly humanitarian sense either. The current Syrian Government is one of Iran's last remaining allies in the region. It's collapse would be a massive blow to Iran's interational prestige and leave the Iranian Government in a weak strategic and political position.

    Completely isolated on a regional level, the Iranians would be far more likely to come to the negotiating table where their nuclear program is concerned. It would also wreak havoc with the Iranian economy and the Iranian public's support for Ahmadinejad's government. It might very well be the final straw necessary to critically destabilize the regime.

    Furthermore, the question of whether or not the Syrian Opposition would be any better than the current regime frankly isn't terribly relevant. The Israelis are perfectly capable of "cleaning house" on their own in this regard. They were more than a match for a militarily strong and politically unified Syria; the ambitions of a divided Syria which has been decimated by almost half a decade of vicious civil war will be easy to contain by way of comparison.

    The long term consequences of one's actions are always ultimately unforeseeable. On a short term basis, however; the situation is a clear win if we play it right.

    I have no idea what these people are up to anymore, nor what their goals are, whether they are long term, strategic, short term, or even whose side they are on. They all appear political now, with no coherent idea what they are doing.
