    Worth it, that is for BP, Exxon Mobil, and Shell.
    What a sweet deal getting taxpayers to pay for getting them back into Iraq after exile for over 3 decades from one of the biggest (if not the biggest) reserves of cheap oil left on the planet.

    Not really that complicated. The US needs to stop being the worlds police force. 15.7 Trillion Dollars in debt and growing. We need to stop getting into these damnable wars.

    No, because it will be seen as an Israeli aggression and Asad and his people could easily use it as an excuse to rally the population behind him. On top of that, where exactly would these troops be staged to go into Syria?

    Iraq? Doubt the Iraqies would allow the troops back in.
    Turkey? Doubt the Turks would want to allow US troops in the kurdish area..
    Lebanon? HAHAHA
    Jordan? LOL dream on.
    Israel? MUHHHA yea right...

    Then maybe a sea landing? D-Day 2.0? LOL!

    ""Everything is calm. I went out to see my friends. Homs is not without communications, all roads are open. We're safe. The army did not bomb. These are self-styled militias, the "Free Syrian army" who attack the military or police and kill civilians. Even today, a soldier was killed. I know because he lived in my neighborhood," said an inhabitant of the place.

    Another resident reported after the Syrian army was able to dislodge the militias (armed gangs) and take over, "We returned to our homes in neighborhoods that were nearly empty. Insecurity continues in three districts, especially in Khaldiyeh, where the national army continues to pursue the militias that keep many families as hostages. My uncle who had been kidnapped two months ago returned home yesterday very ill, very tired, but very lucky considering. He's in the hospital. Many other kidnapped people have not returned and the families have no news of them."

    This statement mentions one of the most dramatic subjects because of the amount of people, including families, which the aggressors kidnapped and brought with them.

    Days before, Silvia Cattori interviewed another resident, a Syrian man 75 years of age who lives in a village in the province of Homs: "What happens here is all the opposite of what they say in their country. I beg your pardon ma'am. Our soldiers are not mercenaries. They are the sons of the people, all mixed religions. They are my brother, my son, my uncle. This is our army. It is impossible for the children to deliberately kill their parents. Our soldiers have faced for many months mercenaries paid by foreign funds to commit their murders. "

    Disinformation against Syria is criminal - English pravda.ru

    This is an opinion piece from Pravda, but it contains details that absolutely run counter to the Mass Media line. This is what happened in Libya also. That's what I mean about the "Mighty Wurlitzer."

    Yes, I think some special forces troops should go in as advisers to help the Syrian rebels. But I think that's all the support we can give them.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I think we are the Syrian rebels! I also don't think we are the good guys. We stirring crap up to benefit some Corporate agenda that sells parts for military offense. It's a no-brainer!

    Do we even know what Syria needs?

    I have no clear picture of the situation... How do we know WHO to support?

    I don't see any emerging leadership or any stated goals.

    I think we shouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole.

    If anyone on here thinks that we don't have operators on the ground already in Syria, you're crazy. I don't think we should, but, I guarantee you we do. Eventually, they will turn the tide of the battle for the rebels and the Syrian gov't will be overthrown.

    I agree. We likely do and we shouldn't.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
