    I think the Arab Spring has done more to destabilize things than we ever did Monte. Also, I noticed that you didn't exactly disagree with my observation of the usefulness of said countries to handle their own problems...

We have two simple questions: 1) Since when did Marines become non-combat-troops? and 2) Is the President going to call all their wives and explain that their boots will not touch the ground? As gentle reminder, no less than 8 hours ago the administration was considering 75 'military advisers' and now it's nearly double that?'

    And so it continues...slowly ramping up American involvement.

    4,000+ U.S. deaths (most of them during GW Bush's watch) in a Middle Eastern quagmire seems to be not enough for Obama.
    Zerohedge. Hehe.

    I thought Obama was supposed to be about hope and change?

    Why would I take issue with the notion that countries should handle their own problems??? I've only stated from the beginning that if the US would step back, and pressure Qatar to step back, president Assad would take care of his problem. He's fighting a war on terror inside his borders, 5-6 militant Islamic groups are struggling to rest Syria from him, with the help of US/Western countries.

    So again I ask, what magical combat operations you see 500 troops involved in when there facing an army of what? 10,000?
    Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

    People aren’t buying what the Republicans are selling on Iraq. Republicans are blaming the violence on withdrawal of American troops, but 67% of Americans think the conflict is rooted in centuries of internal conflict that was exacerbated by the Bush administration’s decision to invade Iraq. Americans overwhelmingly support providing intelligence to the Iraqi government (56%-30%), and a major international diplomatic effort (52%-30%) to stabilize Iraq.

    It turns out that the American people aren’t about to get fooled again by the same lies that got the country into Iraq in the first place. The Republican Party is playing a politically dangerous game by trying to blame President Obama for the wave of violence in Iraq. Instead of blaming Obama, the Republican attacks are reminding the American people that it was the GOP who lied and got the nation into a war of choice.
