    While the Israelis have the latest and greatest air force in the modern world, and can bomb Syria whenever they want without the slightest risk of loss, the primitive US air force would be severely threatened by the Syrian air defence system, which is the best in the world and is able to stop any air force except the Israeli one.

    In addition, the US is paying IS in Syria to eradicate the evil al-Assad regime, a secular regime that rejects Islamist doctrines and which had relations with the atheists in the USSR, and so must be destroyed.

    The US military was misled by those IS liars. They said they were good Wahabbi Islamists who would cleanse Syria of everyone who wasn’t a Wahabbi Muslim, but they lied. They reject the Wahabbi acceptance of the sacred Sykes-Picot boundaries, drawn by Allah personally, and they also reject the Divine Right of Kings, even the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, the rightful leader of all Muslims whose edicts define what it means to be a good Muslim. So they’ve crossed the Sykes-Picot boundaries and threatened states outside Syria, many of which are strongly supported by the US. How could the US possibly have known the IS were all liars? No way. So not our fault.

    It’s pretty difficult, if not impossible, to govern a Middle East country without getting some blood on your hands. At least Assad doesn’t kill Christians. Varvel drinks the cool-aid provided by Obama and McCain.

    Lovely. Here we go again.

    Conservatives: “Obama must bomb ISIS in Syria but he has no strategy, he has no strategy, he has no strategy.”

    Normal people: "But he’s developing one by looking for targets in Syria. "

    Conservatives: “Oh, no; don’t bomb ISIS is Syria; it will help Assad.”

    Varvel apparently doesn’t have a strategy either.

    God is especially helping IS. He’s on their flag and all.

    It was crazy to go against al Assad even if he is a dictator. Better than ISIS who is making use of the civil war. A civil war that if it happened in the USA would be put down fast and with crushing force of arms.

    The USA still has the latest and greatest Air Force, and we allow the Israelies to but some of the stripper versions, which they then deck out with their own electronic suite, some of which we then buy. Just like we bankroll IronDome and drone tech development, and other cyber gear.

    I visit a lot of sites on both sides I’ve only ever seen that construction on leftist sites, though there is much back and forth on conservative one’s of our role out side of our borders. Never seen any leftist site offer proof of the developing target dodge.

    like much of the world outside the northwest quarter-sphere there are many factions creating havoc in Syria and other parts. one of the reasons you have a strategy developed BEFORE you need.
    SF rule, be polite, and kind to everyone at the party and have a plan to kill everyone in the room.

    When the human race becomes truly human, and stops asking “God” to defend and promote their most horrible actions, which of course have nothing to do with “God”, but other humans’ baser instincts supported by their various “religions”, man-made religions, maybe having nothing but friends, instead of enemies, would prevail?
