    Now that's bat **** crazy. They are terrorists that park indiscriminate car bombs outside government buildings, tie people up and shoot them execution style, kill people and eat their hearts, attack Christian villages killing people if they refuse to convert to Islam, kidnap journalists and UN officials and so much more. And, it's not in Syria's or the Syrian people's interest.

    In all the public discussion about delisting the MEK in the last year, where was the MEK spokesman claiming that the US had supported them?

    Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad's regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah.

    This is a monumentally bad idea. It will come back to kill some of us, no doubt.

    The Asad regime provides a critical supply line to Hezbollah in Lebanon and projects Iran's influence in the Middle East. Destroying that would be a strategic gain for the US. Sunni extremism has no more chance of prevailing in Syria than it did in Egypt.

    Why should the US be able to arm terrorists (which is already an insanity that your supporting) half way around the world and project our influence, but Iran should be denied projecting their influence in their own back yard. Oh I know, because we are the global police and we said so by god!

    you think interfering in the internal affairs of other countries is something obama started?

    you seem to be forgetting all the covert action done in the cold war.

    No, of course I don't think it's something he started, and it was started long before the Cold War and something I've never liked.
