    What has yet to be explained is how a group of "good rebels" is going to take over and keep the WMDs from getting into the hands of the "bad rebels" once Assad and the Syrian military have been (briefly?) disabled. All seem to act as if there are but two forces active in Syria and that a "tiny push" from outside will somehow result in peace, love and tie dye. The fact that this did not occur in Egypt, Iraq or Libya is carefully avoided in all discussions.

    If a Republican were leading perhaps "this cause" would be better defined. Just what is "this cause' and what will victory look like?

    How's this for twisted, if the GOP wasn't just Demokrat-lite they could have just said:
    "hey if you want to fire off some cruise missiles in support of Al-Qaeda be our guest who cares?
    we are in the process of rallying support to defund Obamacare and coming up with a plan to reduce
    your ability to continue funding the government with a series of continuing resolutions
    (which is in violation of the Constitution by the way)"

    Mornin Angry, up early in the desert huh? Perhaps you are right on the timing, however, regime change is a long time US foreign policy goal for Syria.

    That's for sure no matter who was leading "this cause" but then that's the US foreign policy goal for the region, destabilisation. It's much easier to exploit.

    Change to what? The Moselm Brotherhood and or Al Qaeda? pshaw, American foreign policy is so screwed up no one knows what the hell is going on. We can't even begin to know what our 'national interest' consists of anymore. One thing is for certain the mid-east will continue to be a pain in the arse for the rest of our lives. We should just cordon the place off and wean ourselves from foreign oil exports through domestic exploration and greater energy efficiency. If western Europe wants oil let them buy it from the Rooskies! Heck how 'bout this once we didn't need their oil we could embargo the Arab's from exporting oil?!? heh heh

    No, nothing like Iraq is being planned, as far as I know.

    In fact do you know what the plan actually is??
