    Hand over another Country that Sunni cannot take over by their own selves? All the while as they persecute others of different religions. Subjugate their own women and that New World Order format of Same Sex relationships. While at the same time always stabbing us in the back and using us to do the Work they Can't handle.

    Then Hand over Iran and any other Shia ran Countries to the Sunni.....as once again. They will not be able to take care of anything on their own without the help of anyone else with their Ancient Dispute over who Should be the one to have Power and rule over all Muslims.

    Do you think the Sunni will stop stabbing us in the back once they get all their Power?

    Yeah McCain has the Right to go and see for himself. He also has the Right to have a foot put up his azz. I will volunteer.
    Greetings, MMC.
    The optimum moment for action was about 18 months ago, when the secular rebels were at their most influential. Since then, our inaction weakened the secular forces and gave an opening to the Sunni radicals. Regardless, the destruction of the Asad regime remains hugely in our interest, even if the successor is a not-especially-friendly Sunni regime. Such a result would be a strategic defeat for both Hezbollah and Iran. And don't worry about Sunnis taking over in Iran; that won't happen.

    Peace is a noble desire but looking back at the history of the middle east, it doesn't come without strength and violence. Then everybody hates the emerging winner; then another faction wins, then everyone hates them. Its a vicious circle occurring ad nauseum and bringing about a temporary cessation of force.

    I'm tired of the US being the world's police force, having our people die for their insanity, and the US taxpayer funding it.

    If anyone here thinks the dynamics of the middle east will change without an act of God or a tactical thermonuclear show of force, then you're no more rational than John McCain. No offense, just my

    That is correct, Idris has no control over Al Nusra. That's what I've said. They're separate entities. Which is why, y'know, it's important to not lump them together as if they were one and the same.

    What if he tells Idris to lick his own elbow?

    You continue to commit your mistake of lumping all the rebels into a one-size-fits-all mold that doesn't reflect the reality on the ground. I am of the opinion that there are elements under Salim Idris's command in the FSA that are "better" than Jahbat al-Nusra - yes, absolutely.

    Did you say something about the FSA not operating under Al Nusra?
    Yes I did. I'd repeat it, but the very article you just linked does it for me by explicitly stating they are separate groups. Maybe you missed it though, since the article didn't put that line in bold maroon font.

    I'm not sure what fantasy world you live in whereby if a minority of FSA elements defect to Al-Nusra, then the FSA is under command of Al-Nusra, but that's one strange world.

    How the **** should I know -maybe some friendly Sunni foreign groups smuggled them in? Maybe they captured them from the Syrian army who got them from the Russians? Or maybe the CIA accidentally "misplaced" a shipment?

    So what does McCain hope to accomplish with this visit? Does he think he's going to talk them down or something? I wonder how diplomatic he is? I like him and think he's actually kind of funny sometimes, but after comments like "Bomb, bomb, bomb-bomb, bomb Iran" I don't know how other Muslims might look at that.

    Maybe he just finished watching "Charlie Wilson's War" and was hoping for a movie deal.
