    Kerry: Arab countries offered to pay for invasion

    Secretary of State John Kerry said at Wednesday’s hearing that Arab counties have offered to pay for the entirety of unseating President Bashar al-Assad if the United States took the lead militarily.

    “In fact, some of them have said that if the United States is prepared to go do the whole thing the way we’ve done it previously in other places, they’ll carry that cost,” Kerry said. “That’s how dedicated they are at this. That’s not in the cards, and nobody’s talking about it, but they’re talking in serious ways about getting this done.

    Is our Army for hire?
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    I read this story this morning...so now we are the hired help to the M.E.? Isnt that nice.

    If they want it done let them do it themselves, there is still no reason to mess in the Syrian Civil war.
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.

    Pretty sure this takes us from "a few specifically targetted airstrikes with no boots on the ground to "war"...on our own...with a minimum of 75,000 troops. In a country back by Muslim extremists with both sides that hate us.

    As regional power, this is Saudi Arabia's responsibility. We should not be participating any more than Saudi Arabia should intervene in a Mexican civil war.

    Pretty insulting.

    I don't know what's more insulting - the offer, or our secretary of state repeating it.

    It shouldn't be.

    If they want to pay for it, then let them do it themselves. We shouldn't be involved AT ALL.

    They've got our money. They've got our weapons. What we don't have that they do is the common sense to stay out of fights like this.
