    lol..about the only thing Obama did right on Syria was back down from that stupid "red line" talk.
    Impossible to separate such factions as al_Nusra, from Free Syrian Army (or whatever they are called now the old Gen. Idris groups).

    Problem is Syria is a Russian client state, and we just can't live with that, so we screw around, and everything we've done has facilitated AQIL/ISIL/Islamic State
    On the plus side...Hillary would have been worse

    Hey, I'm right there with you on that. Hope you don't think I've lifted Bush off any hooks.

    thing is..I don't know how to fix this mess..
    I'm thinking now it's "unfixable" - and about all we can do is 'degrade' Islamic State and let them slug it out.

    Yes, he did, you're right. I'm afraid Bush would have been the belligerent and declared he was the decider and attacked Syria against the total opposition that existed all around him.

    One things certain, there is no military option, unless Americans are up to the price.

    Do you blame women for rape that they fail to avoid?
    Well, since you don't care what I think, I won't be answering you anymore, and you won't be caring that I don't.

Because that seems to be an important step along the way in determining just who is responsible for what in destabilizing the middle east.
    The Syrian protests that led to the militant uprising would have been crushed by president Assad early on, but due to US support and training of the militants, whose ranks swelled with MB/AQ/al Nusra fighters during the course of time, the rebels were strengthened and emboldened creating enough opposition to president Assad to last into a three and a half year conflict in which 160,000 civilians have been caught between the two fighting forces and are gone, blood on US hands as well. Now IS comes out of Syria and into Iraq, and your still trying to figure out who's responsible.

    Yeah, my point. These people mingle too much. Air support creates too many dead civilians (I'm suppose to call that collateral damage but I'm rebellious) and a ground campaign against IS may prove more costly in US blood and treasure then fighting al Qaeda there last decade. Oh btw, the same al Qaeda that we then used to help topple Gaddafi and then used in Syria in an attempt to topple Assad.
