    Oh I forget: you're using conservative logic and so you don't want to discuss relevant facts.

    The Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) currently arming, funding, and commanding entire brigades of the so-called “Free Syrian Army” (FSA), is designated an Al Qaeda affiliate by the United Nations pursuant to resolutions 1267 (1999) and 1989 (2011), in addition to being listed by both the US State Department and the UK Home Office (page 5, .pdf) as a foreign terrorist organization and a proscribed terrorist organization respectively.

    There are no "groups" in Syria that are or will be an ally or friend of the US.

    NONE.

    What is currently happening is the Muslim version of our Vietnam or Korean War; in that the Sunni's (Saudi Arabia and others) and Shiites (Iran, Al Qaeda and others) are fighting a proxy war with Syria the battleground.

    They were hoping for it to be blamed on Assad as the US is trying to do, knowing that if it would work, they could lay on their laurels, take a break, while the US starts blowing stuff and people up. A lot of those people will be civilians too though.

    Surely you know, FOX would love anybody if they can get behind another war.

    I don't know that I want to necessarily disagree with you on that Beau, it is however somewhat different than what you said that prompted me to post what your quoting. Even you have put the posters up of Uncle Sam drawing horns on an al Qaida fighter in A-Stan and angels wings on the same fighter in Syria. That is who the US is aligning themselves with in Syria, much as John McCain wants to insist on how moderate they are the UN has absolutely designated the FSA an al Qaida affiliate. Assad and Putin have both insisted that Assad is fighting a war on terrorists inside his borders, myself and others on this board have documented the horrible atrocities committed by these Islamist extremists jihadists and the US is backing the wrong people in this war and interfering in Assad's war on terror. But that's how the US rolls these days, all three branches of our government are broken, both houses of congress are impotent when it comes to dealing with the imperial presidency and Jimmy Carter is right, we do no longer have a functioning democracy.

    You know what would also be a really boneheaded move? A U.S. president helping to commit a war crime to justify aiding America's enemies, when most of the country is war-weary and half of the country is looking for him to fail.

    I'm a little confused by why Assad would order a chemical weapons attack as well, but I have to believe that our leaders (1) are not insane, and (2) have learned enough from the Iraq debacle not to repeat the same mistakes of faulty intelligence.

    Once again, someone going to a political porn site and asking us to indulge in his fantasies. Where are the serious people at DP?
