    With both sides implicated, bomb everyone! – or no-one.

    If he could just make a decision within the confines of his job…

    We know (from RT, which means Russian TV, rt.com) that Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia offered Putin billions of baksheesh if he’d vote ‘Da’ to a Chapter VII against the Syrian government (instead of ‘Nyet’, written ‘Het’ in Cyrillic). But Putin still said, ‘Het.’


    We don’t know how much Prince Bandar offered Cameron and Hollande and Obama, since they didn’t first refuse and then made sure the world knew they’d refused. But we know they all keep voting in the security council to let the US destroy the Syrian government and let the Brits/French/Saudis pick up the pieces.


    (We don’t have any direct evidence, since they didn’t let us see photocopies of the cheques, but the circumstantial evidence in favour of baksheesh is overwhelming.)

    The great decider.. not. Let me help. Either bomb anything that moves in a hostile manner regardless of sides and right after they fire. Or not at all. or to put it another way, bomb them both and Let Allah sort them out or just keep letting kill each other in the name of Allah.

    Or we could begin a campaign that would take even more strength , patience and honor. A campaign of humanitarian aid and diplomacy. A show of strength greater than any war in history. We could conquer this enemy with Love and compassion for our fellow man! Backed by the greatest standing army on the planet.

    The Common Sense Answer
    NOT TO BOMB!
    The United States has spent 12 years of Men, Money and Political Capital in The Middle East, with no return other than crying mothers, a destroyed economy and International scorn. Time to pull out and let The Middle East Deal with its own problems.

    @mskemple

    While I ideally support your concept here, I have to say that the world is not ideal. I have just read a commentary by Nicholas Kristof, known to be strongly anti-war, which you might find interesting:
    The threat that worked

    Sounds like a great plan. Unfortunately, that won’t bump up the stocks of Lockheed-Martin or Raytheon, so it’ll never happen. Profit uber alles!

    Thanks for the link , good read. I know some will find my last line inappropriate , but “peace through strength” does seem to have merit!

    @David

    the evidence is not like that in 2002, with fake yellow cake etc… ; the world agrees that Assad used chemical weapons "
    With Putin putting it to the world that Kerry LIED and then making Kerry out to be the fool he is, The “world” does not think Assad used anything. He was winning and did not need gas to kill. He was doing that very well with the weapons Putin gave him. And what is this “lie” you are talking about the world believed? They are using Saddam’s WMD right now. W did believe they had them, W managed to get our government to believe, we also had many countries backing us up. So either G W Bush was the greatest politician ever for keeping this “lie” going for so long and fooling so many or you are just ignorant.
    Obama on the other hand can get France to back us up and that is it, FRANCE?

    Really? I am not an R! I am anti loony liberal D, but that does not mean I am an R.
    Show me who in the R have my thoughts on what to do. I would like to back them. but I don’t see any other politician stating bomb them all if they do something. If you can not go in and just clean house of any who want to be on the battle field, Then do nothing. Let them kill each other off. Make it clear that what bleeds over the border will die.
    Then set up as much humanitarian aid as we can manage. Protect those who do not fight! Like the Christians who are dying in record numbers in the middle east since Obama took office.
    Bottom line. Assad and the many faction in his country are nothing but radical vs radical vs more radical. We do not belong there unless we are bombing them all and not taking sides.
