    Going through a mass-murdering, chemical weapon using dictator is nonsense. Assad is merely grasping for legitimacy.

    You always blamed the US for Syrian terrorists.
    Partially? Yes.

    You always claim Assad is the good guy
    Dont think I ever called him a "good guy". Called him currently the lesser of two evils.

    and he didn't use chems against the capital.
    There are many reports taht back up this fact.

    the syrian opposition has no recognizable leader of the same pedigree as Salah Al Din.

    **When I say "We" I mean the US gov**
    I remember Assad tell us awhile back that we were backing the wrong folks in the Syrian Civil War. I think we just blew him off, I did. But ISIS making up the major portion of the Rebels, perhaps we should make nice with Assad and combine his ground forces with our air force. Assad may not be a nice man, but he brings stability to Syria which now seems fairly non-existent.

    When it comes to threats, ISIS is a bigger one than Assad. If we can link hands with Stalin to defeat Hitler, we can do the same here with Assad.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I'd like links that conclusively prove either of those lies.

    Assad is not guilty of war crimes and he did not gas the capital?

    I'm just saying that from a standpoint of a war, it would be good to have a side to pick. Did we go to war with the Nazis AND the USSR simultaneously? No, that would have been a disaster.

    We go in, kill everybody, then who gets put in charge? These are the things that need to be thought out. HAlf the problem in Iraq is that nobody thought about who we'd replace Saddam with. So it ended up being nobody for a while, and that sure didn't work. And even then, we had a clear idea who the enemy was. In this case who's our enemy?

    It sucks that innocents are getting killed, but why is it better to kill American soldiers with no clear idea of what it is we're trying to accomplish?

    Democratic movements are not dependent upon individuals, they're dependent upon understanding the concept of natural rights (something that even many Westerners are incapable of grasping).

    We don't have to choose though. We can help the moderate rebels by bombing only ISIS who they are also fighting against. Working with Assad would mean we would bomb all the rebel groups. He does not see a difference between them
