    Libya has turned out great huh. Besides which Syria is such a mess now there are no good guys to support.

    and then, unbelievably, there's THIS;

    Obama administration and Mexican government officials recently discussed creating a three-tier security system designed to protect Mexico’s southern border from drug and human traffickers, according to U.S. officials.

    The border control plan calls for U.S. funding and technical support of three security lines extending more than 100 miles north of Mexico’s border with Guatemala and Belize. The border security system would use sensors and intelligence-gathering to counter human trafficking and drug running from the region, a major source of illegal immigration into the United States.

    Mornin Penderyn. Well.....Team Obama is moving some of our Naval Ships a bit closer. I put up a thread on it in General Political Discussions. Making sure we have a Tomahawk to throw if necessary.

    Good Lord! Stuff like this takes time. I suppose you expect a country like that to be at war one day, and a perfectly functional country the next? That's kind of retarded Sawyer.

    you'll find me fully in favor of securing the southern border.

    and then, unbelievably, there's THIS;

    Obama administration and Mexican government officials recently discussed creating a three-tier security system designed to protect Mexico’s southern border from drug and human traffickers, according to U.S. officials.

    yup. If you ever want a laughable lesson in hypocrisy, look at how Mexico treats illegal aliens :-p

    Of course not, but that's not because of our intervention in Libya, that because of all the lunatics who reside there. Not much one can do about that.

Then it seems possibly both sides have used chemical weapons possibly for the sloe purpose of drawing us into the conflict. In a situation where there is no good answer, I think setting up a refugee program possibly to Turkey, Jordan or an undeveloped area of western Iraq along with an international peacekeeping force set up to evacuate people might be worth considering. In the meantime, emergency efforts should be made to sharply curtail our dependency on petroleum, a key reason we must stay involved in the region in the first place as well as the motive of greed for our money for dictators to rule with iron fisted brutality once they gain power.
    turkey is already full of syrian islamist monsters .

    Wasn't realistic then; isn't realistic now, unless you want to have Russian and Chinese boots on the ground too. You obviously believe the Russian's warnings are hot air and that the US should have called their bluff. That would be the way to kick off WWIII, but I guess that would keep you guys in work for a while more.
