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.

    Bush replaced a lot of generals before he had what he needed to conduct his illegal war. Not defending Obama, just saying.

    But unlike Obama, Bush replaced warriors with warriors.

    There is no statute of limitations on any murder. Much less genocide. Heck, they still find and convict war criminals from WW2.

    That stretch ain't working.

    It's not just america, first off, as the R2P initiative was ratified by the UNSC and GA, so there's that.

    Let's not forget Clinton's missile strikes in Africa, Afghanistan and the Kosovo War bombing campaign, all done without congressional approval iirc.

    Nobody is saying we should invade Syria to solely to bring Assad to justice, the argument is that we should invade it due to the current and worsening humanitarian situation. Maybe we should invade France to avenge the revolutionary terror.

    The debate as to what Navy assets should be in the region is really irrelevent when you take knto account the possible locations of our Subs.

    And that includes the Boomers.

    They' let us in on what they want seen and the same with the Ruskies.

    The way iran does? The day that assad began running a terrorist insurgency in iraq from syria, was the first day towards the end of his regime. There was no way the US would allow assad to allow his country to be used as a safe haven for those killing americans in iraq, just not going to happen.

    Anything that hurts iran, like losing the syrian client state as a source of terrorism to be used against other countries, is a positive. My only complaint in '03 was not going after iran, attacking saddam was pointless.

    Kosovo, where Halliburton got their first no bid contract.
