    Just announced. The US has confirmed it has undeniable proof that Assad in fact used chemical weapons against his own people and, as a result, the US will begin supplying lethal military aid to the rebels for the first time since the war began 2 years ago.

    About damn time.
    Yes, let's continue to stick our nose where it doesn't belong, and fund overly violent factions. It's not like we should learn our lessons from history or anything, like that time we provided heavy air support to the Libyan rebels, and shortly after, they thanked us by murdering our ****ing ambassador in Benghazi. That was last year for ****s sake, and now we're just going to keep doing the same old **** we've been doing for at least half a century because we cling to the hope that it might work at some point in time.

    Seriously, this is retarded. If they want to kill each other, it's not our problem. Their civil war is their civil war. It's not our fight, what part of that does nobody seem to ever understand?
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    The reality is, it's not a civil war but actually a religious war, Sunni vs. Shiite.

    BTW the US started this war 2 years ago, then there was a thread everybody at this site posted in saying no to Syria involvement.

    In fascism, disinformation, lies spin and hype draw focus from news issues. I see a lot of times human rights, casualties are swopt under the rug in favor of sensationalism, hype, nuttiness like from Alex Joiners Prison Planet cash cow. Norm Goldman thinks marijuana legalization is more important than Syria judging by coverage.

    Thats a Dictatorship for ya.

    It's very much a civil war, since it's a rebel faction trying to overthrow a presiding government. Regardless, their issues are not ours. The UN can do something about it if they feel that international law has been breached to the point of requiring punitive action.

    No matter where I stand, it looks pretty obvious, Sunnies vs. Shiites.
    That's the way it's been for hundreds of years.

    How many Shia do you see fighting alongside the rebels ? How many Sunnies do you see aligned with Assad ?

    Why does Obama always back the radical Islamist ?

    You would think Obama would have stepped back and took a look at the Middle East and said, "I caused the Middle East to become the basket case it is today ?" and just left it to the new big boy on the block to take on the problem, the Russians.

    That seems to be new only in that we are openly doing it.

    NATO vs. Syria | The American Conservative

    Unmarked NATO warplanes are arriving at Turkish military bases close to Iskenderum on the Syrian border, delivering weapons from the late Muammar Gaddafi’s arsenals as well as volunteers from the Libyan Transitional National Council who are experienced in pitting local volunteers against trained soldiers, a skill they acquired confronting Gaddafi’s army. Iskenderum is also the seat of the Free Syrian Army, the armed wing of the Syrian National Council. French and British special forces trainers are on the ground, assisting the Syrian rebels while the CIA and U.S. Spec Ops are providing communications equipment and intelligence to assist the rebel cause, enabling the fighters to avoid concentrations of Syrian soldiers.
    This, ladies and gentlemen, is the link back to Benghazi. I'm just surprised few have recognized it. Ask yourself these questions:

    - Why did the U.S. retain a temporary consulate office in Benghazi when ever other nation had left? What was its purpose?
    - What was the mop-up plan to collect all the loose weapons on the Libyan battlefield post-Ghadaffi?
    - Where did those weapons go?
    - Why the sudden arming by the U.S. along the Turkish/Syrian border when most of the refugees were going west not north?

    You may find most of your answers here.

    Obama's Syria Policy a Mess | The Weekly Standard


    Not at all, I'm doing the exact opposite. I'm assuming those who criticized Obama weeks ago for not taking action before carefully investigating the evidence are now singing his praises, since the "red line" was apparently so important to them.

    Of course, if they are not, then that would suggest hypocrisy, but I didn't say anything like that. You did, but I didn't.
    Most of the criticism that I read about Obama and his "red-line" had nothing to do with any belief that we needed to commit forces. Rather, it was just one more display that the strutting rooster Obama, with all of his huffing and puffing, was once again shown to be a capon, and a lying one at that. He gives our foes a good laugh though.

    And this.

    Iran to send 4,000 troops to aid President Assad forces in Syria - Middle East - World - The Independent

    "For the first time, all of America’s ‘friends’ in the region are Sunni Muslims and all of its enemies are Shiites. Breaking all President Barack Obama’s rules of disengagement, the US is now fully engaged on the side of armed groups which include the most extreme Sunni Islamist movements in the Middle East."

    How are those re election results looking now?

    Unlikely to happen right now. What about after 20 more years of this? 40 more years? Obama is the most divisive president in recent history. Bush pissed off liberals. Clinton ruined the reputation of the Presidency. Bush was weak. Reagan was divisive. Carter was a joke. Nixon was a criminal. JFK was a womanizer. How much longer can it go on?
