    Yeah. So, no, in fact, you are not able to demonstrate how a strike against Assads' IADs and CW networks would inflame the whole region in war?

    Agreed.
    Wasn't so much targeting you specifically as much as arguments that some have made that cant seem to make those distinctions...

    But I think we both agree that the entire revolution was manipulated by the us, taking advantage of the sentiment that was already on the verge legitimately within the people.

    Here's the problem with Syria. There are no good guys on either side. Assad is a tyrant but he is generally popular with most of the people living in Syria, except for the Islamists and the people he killed with poison gas. He's fighting a rebel army, which McCain mistakenly calls the free Syrian army, that is made up of a coalition of Islamists, AlQaeda, foreign fighters and relatives of the people that Assad gassed. They are involved in a civil war that has nothing to do with the United States.

    Here's the problem with the United States. Our President took a side. Neither side is worthy of our support but now Obama has signaled his intentions. Then he let Putin gain the upper hand. Russia supports Assad and with Russian support Assad feels that he has the ability to tell Obama to stop giving material support to the rebels. Putin and Assad are banging Obama like a cheap screen door.

    How did Syria and Russia get the upper hand? Obama doesn't believe in strength through power. He believes in negotiated peace without a consistent foreign policy that indicates America says it will do something and does it. Everyone in the Middle East understands that Obama is a weak leader and he has made himself look even weaker by rattling his saber and then throwing it into the lap of Congress, sending his dufus Secretary of State to go talk to the Russians in hopes of diffusing the actions that he controls. It's the most disjointed international effort I've ever seen.

    Asad in charge is better than allowing AlQaeda to take charge. Asad protects the christians from the Muslims.
    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.

    This analogy is correct up to the part where seeing the steel should represent us seeing nukes from Israelites. Has anyone at least seen nuke missiles or so? Has there been a presentation of such of nukes from Israel?

    Even if it is so the analogy is not about hitting anyone's head. It is about the steel hitting ground so as all would see the impact and believe it.

    How many reports have you had of Christians beheading Muslims in Syria?

    Mornin DDD. The reason I said.....that was due to the French filing Enforceable action resolutions in the UN. Over 5 different countries that we know of. That in each the French has had to rely on the US for assistance to get whatever done. That they did not handle anything on their own. Plus then it is the French who jump into the MS Media Sources. AP, Reuters, and UPI.
