    The problem isn’t not noticing. The problem is that the “rebels” our government wants to put in power are worse criminals than the ones who are currently in power.

    Yes, we really really need to give weapons to those four guys.

    Hey, stopped clocks and all that. I really don’t know what RWNJs are saying about this stuff but it’s not impossible that they could be occasionally correct about something. No, I can’t think of any examples where they have, but….

    It’s nothing but the standard playbook: Train and arm a proxy force so that when they take over the country, they’ll do things the way you want. If that fails you consider other options like bombing or sending in your own troops, and if your guys eventually stop being on your side you start the whole process over again with somebody else. This has been going on for the past 50-60 years under administrations of both parties.

    America as World policeman hasn’t worked out so well for America in the last few decades. Its like playing cards with fly paper.

    Iraq(our friend) is allowing Iran to send planes with weapons to Syria. Afghanistan says ‘NO’ to a permanent military base. Lybia leadership is a mess. New Pakistan president threatens to close, again, the only road US has to provide supplies to US Troops because we are killing Taliban inside their borders.
    US State Dept is incompetent.
    It is time to recognize: US Will Fail in Syria.

    Can you say “quagmire”?

    I don’t know how you can’t conclude that the administration is working to get rid of Assad. Even the NYT has reported that the CIA is arming Syrian “rebel” groups. Then there’s the steady stream of propaganda, like the announcement that the Syrian government used chemical weapons — it later turned out that it was the opposition who did this. Our government’s on one side, in fact it pretty much is that side, it just doesn’t want to be too overt about it, possibly because of how Russia and China might react. I don’t know if Fox “News” is saying anything like this, I’d be surprised if they are, but either way, “X says Y is true but X is a total chucklehead, therefore Y is false” is not really a valid argument.

    We were hoping Europe would step up…

    Maybe all this will over after the Russians are in control of any oil interests, all the pipelines, and the warm sea port…

    only one of the four horsemen was Death, the other three were War, Strife, and Furry. (Furry is my favorite)

    “We were hoping Europe would step up…”

    And please explain what “step up” means?

    Do you think Europeans don’t have a dictionary with" quagmire" in it, too? Well, the French & British might not but the other Europeans do.

    You have on other occasions hinted other countries aren’t doing a thing; be they Arab countries, neighbouring countries, Europeans..and each time I’ve replied showing exactly what these countries are and are not doing, bearing in mind Realpolitik and political positions.

    What is it that YOU would like done?

    @omQ R

    I would like for the British and French, specifically, to do what they are asking us to do. That’s what I mean by step up.
