    Hey, looks like the long term plans of the jihadists don't change from terrorist group to terrorist group. They just kill, their own people and their enemies.

    What exactly was your point then?

    That you were in the military and had to do things you didn't agree with, just like everybody else that's ever served? Or that you would have been in the thick of demonstrations, rallies and such except you were not allowed? Or that you were deployed and couldn't possibly attend any such events? Or that because you served in the gulf, your opinion counts more than anybody else's?

    Your point wasn't very pointed.

    BTW...I don't support a military strike on Syria based on what I know at this time. I think it would be premature.
    So you have proof? And furthermore, what does it matter what Bush did. Obama said he could do it better, would do it better. He's been a disaster and ten kinds of ****ed up on foreign policy. He did one single thing right, he killed OBL. And his supposed foreign policy expert, Joe "Foot-in-mouth" Biden has been no where.

    Oh, I read it. That's why I asked those other questions of you. Your "point" was near pointless.

The point is the the imminent mass slaughter of the type that is faced today in Syria had long passed by the time of the 2003 invasion, and a piss poor explanation of its motivation

    Nothing.

    America no longer has any credibility in the Middle east and many other parts of the world because of Obama's failed foreign affairs policies. How many times has Obama moved the line in Syria ? Obama has already has replaced American military leaders who were warriors and replaced them with PC "yes men" who don't have the cajones to do the right thing, they are just going through the procedure of punching their cards so they can retire hoping they aren't next on Obama's hit list. Obama is redefining the purpose and culture of our military by using social engineering.

    Obama abandoned the Middle East soon after he became POTUS. Obama has thrown American allies under the bus, one who helped keep the peace in the Middle East and protected Israels southern flank. In less than four years the entire Middle East has become a basket case.

    When Obama abandoned the Middle East and supported the Arab Spring he created a vacuum and Russia took the advantage to fill that vacuum. Even the Egyptian military are considering to turning too the Russians.

    As for Syria, it's not a civil war but a religious war, Sunni and Shia killing each other and fighting for political control. It doesn't matter who wins, it will be a lose lose situation for America and the Western world. Things would have been better with the status quo of how things were back in 2008 in the Middle East and North Africa.

    By chance do your friends call you "stretch"? Because what you are trying to do is one heck of a stretch. it's as silly as "Bush lied". Maybe even more so.

    Not as much as a stretch as justifying an invasion in 2003 for a genocide took place in 1991 and was averted by 1996 then comparing it to mass slaughter that is taking place as we speak.
