    @conservegov,
    No, getting involved in Syria’s civil war. In fact, hell no.

    The administration has been telling everyone it’s a civil war.


    My Syrian friends say it’s not. They say that that most of the anti-government forces are not Syrian rebels, but mercenaries recruited from all over the world and paid by Saudi Arabia and Qatar.


    The mercenaries have promised that, once they’ve defeated the Syrian government, they’ll rid Syria of all infidels. And by ‘infidels’ the mercenaries mean everyone who isn’t Wahabbi or Ikwan.


    And it’s ‘Today, Syria, tomorrow the world’ for those mercenaries.

    The popular reaction to Assad’s use of poison gas seems to be that America is war-weary. That this is not our problem; that too many things can go wrong; that we don’t want another war. This reaction despite Obama clearly stating this is not regime change or invasion; that it is a swift, targeted, and sufficiently punitive strike designed to deter further use of poison gas.
    .
    Iran backed Syrian Assad and terrorist groups all over the world are cheering: America has lost the will to fight terrorism. We won, we won! America has given up! America has lost! Democracies have lost!
    .
    Load up the canisters! Here we come New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, London, Paris, Toronto, Amsterdam….ALLAHU AKBAR!!

    From a certain perspective, this Admin. is committing treason during a time of war. Aiding and abetting the enemy. Radical Islam is gaining power in the Middle East with this Admin. help.
    Just sayin.

    Much like Vietnam , all over again.
    Don’t we ever learn ?
    We should , by now, know the difference between Germany and Syria , even Persia.
    We need more intelligent men and women , as advisers , with more knowledge and less emotion..
    And we do have a UN , do we not ??
    If not, lets organize one…
    Russia, China, NK, Somalia need not apply..
    Problem, is, where do I draw the line ??
    I think that we all can agree with Somalia and North Korea….. I think…

    I’d rather spend time and effort in figuring out out why man hates his fellow man so much…and what can be done to alleviate this condition… and without the slurs and insults from the extremists here..

    Well now, the Rivers-of-American-Blood-and-Plenty-of-Body-Bags Republicans are revving up their propaganda with more irrational fear stories, out of their fervid and sick imaginations. “The Flying Carpets are coming! Beware! The Flying Carpets are coming!” And, as usual, the Nation is supposed to rush to get bogged down in a quagmire of Centuries old internal strife, trying to “bring democracy” – or whatever – to those for whom it isn’t even a cultural fiction, much less a desired reality.


    “Michael wme” and “Gypsy 8” remind me of the days when the Iranians were going to take over the world – according to the war-mongering Republicans, that is. Just change the name of the local area of the Middle East’ scream loudly; and watch everyone . . . recognize fantasy and chicken-hawk fiction for exactly what it is, Republican fantasy and chicken-hawk fiction, nothing else.


    But then again, what else does the party of “Not only NO!, but HELL NO!” have to offer? WAR! WAR!! and MORE WAR!!!, of course. Otherwise, how would a senile, old, has-been, Hollywood ham, and a pair of witlings – Daddy & Brat – be remembered as anything more than a footnote in some history book? Sort of like . . . say . . . Mallard Fillmore?

    Just remove medina and mecca from the face of the earth.

    Which would murder a LOT of innocent civilians, turn our allies against us, and whip the Islamic extremists into a frenzy, and act as their recruiting tool.

    Ansonia:


    "Nay, whoever submits his whole self to Allah and is a doer of good, He will get his reward with his Lord; on such shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.


    The Jews say: ‘The Christians have naught (to stand) upon; and the Christians say; ’The Jews have naught (to stand) upon.’ Yet they (profess to) study the same book. Like unto their word is what those say who know not; but Allah will judge between them in their quarrel on the Day of Judgement."


    The Quran


    BTW, “Allah” is just Arabic for the same God of Abraham all “bible religions”, which includes Islam, believe in.


    There are other examples in the Quran that Mohammed was far more egalitarian than either Judaism, OR Christianity, but like those other two, “followers”, in latter days, have ignored the wisdom, and generosity of those teachings.


    When it comes to killing each other, no bible religion en masse has credibility, even though a few, very few, sects, like the “Quakers” can claim more “peaceful” intent, which is exactly why our “Christian forefathers” tried to kill off the Quakers as well when they attempted to defend the native Americans whose lands were being stolen at the time before our “Revolution” and after!


    Directly to the ‘toon, I don’t see intervention being proposed as rational, but at the same time, Kosovo WAS an example of stopping the killing, for a while anyway, and that was Christians in Serbia starting the atrocities! “Peace” prize is still a misnomer, as it represents wishful thinking, and is presented often to those who’ve merely made an effort, unlike Bush/Cheney, and that IS a difference!

    That explains what the medal is for. Ever notice the Nobel Peace Prize goes to the individual most in favor of war in the past, present, future, or all of the above? I believe using that standard, Obama more than qualifies, but Reagan would never qualify, as he managed to have Peace Through Strength using “Star Wars Technology” which not only scared the Soviets, but almost all of Europe and every last kook loser American deadbeat socialist nut.

    It is not “that America is war weary.” It is that America is PC war weary.

    If we are in a fight against terrorism, then let’s fight the root cause, not the symptom.

    But you are correct, The US is sending mixed signals to the Arab world, we fight here, we don’t fight there. And when we do fight, we do not slam the fist down hard.

    I am not sure if this true or not, (maybe someone on the vines has info yes or no about this)
    But at the end of WWII, there was a sniper attack on Allied troops in a German village, one soldier killed, one wounded. The Colonel ordered the troops out, and artillery in, the town was razed. From what I understand this happened a couple times, and then abruptly stopped. I guess word got around about what happens when a fanatical Nazi tried to take out Americans. (the locals put a stop to it)

    @Michael wme I have been saying this for a long time. Where are the Arabs (Saudi, Kuwaiti, UAE, etc; the wealthy ones any way) on all this?

    If Islam were truly a peaceful religion, then the leaders of that religion, especially in the countries named should be at the top of the list of those trying to stop terrorism.
    Instead, those around Syria, “Call for action” meaning they want the US to do something, (and we will, we are their lapdog now, do to PC) instead of taking care of their own business.

    Allah knows the Sinai Peninsula has enough money to fund a war on terrorism. But I am guessing you are correct, they are more (most) likely to fund terrorism. Ever notice how after an attack oil prices go up? Coincidence? I think not.
