    Nothing like a good old fashion proxy war between the USA and Russia.

    Im not talking about holding signs, what am I the occupy movement.

    Im talking about substantive resolutions-like the removal of the president, via all legal channels.

    Didn't you say that America has been stirring it in the ME for the past 100 years?

    That's what I was talking about.

    Well you weren't here during the Bush administration, criticizing his support of militant Islamic groups, time will tell if you criticize the next GOP-administration that will be doing the same thing.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama asked Congress Thursday for $500 million to train and arm vetted members of the Syrian opposition, as the U.S. struggles for a way to stem a civil war that has also fueled the al-Qaida inspired insurgency in neighboring Iraq.

    The military training program would deepen the Obama administration's involvement in the more than four-year conflict between rebels and forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad. If approved by Congress, the program would supplement a covert train-and-assistance program run by U.S. intelligence agencies.

    The Syria program is part of a broader $65.8 billion overseas operations request that the administration sent to Congress Thursday. The package includes $1 billion to help stabilize nations bordering Syria that are struggling with the effects of the civil war. It also formalizes a request for a previously announced $1 billion to strengthen the U.S. military presence in Central and Eastern Europe amid Russia's threatening moves in Ukraine.

    WTH? He really doesn't have a clue.
    I have nothing against giving the rebels training and equipment. I just don't think the US should pay. The problems should be handled and the costs born by the neighbors. The US can help but should not make the thing its problem.

    These are some of the same rebels that are tied to the group taking over Iraq. I really think they are making a huge mistake!
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    He was never a supporter of ISIS (Obama was), and he certainly wasn't making friends with Iran-the worlds largest state sponsor of terror.
