It is sufficient to yell "Eastasia!" as you leap.

And Iran has just admitted what everyone knew, they have been funneling in troops and supplies to prop up Assad.

On one hand, people say we shouldn't support the rebels because radical Islamist elements are backing them, e.g. Al Qaeda (though I've read article that point out that in many cases it's just a marriage of convenience). On the other, Iran is allegedly backing Assad.

I dunno, it's complicated I guess. I do understand that the West's (and Israel's) overarching strategy to control the Middle East is, underneath all the BS, maintaining instability. The idea being that instability makes it harder for a unified Middle East to pose a challenge to established Western and Eastern powers. That's when I realize that all conspiracy theories about this sh*t is actually being fomented from outside may actually make sense.

In any case, Assad is a dick and I wouldn't shed a tear if he was toppled.

Yeah because the US loves the effect that instability has on gas prices.

Most of the power struggles in the US have nothing to do with the US. Shia vs Sunni. Arab vs. Kurd.

No it doesn't. See above.

I agree with you there.

Syria is a powderkeg. The country is under Russian protection and has been for some time, but western leaders and media are talking about it as though it's completely isolated from the international community.

My biggest fear is that if the US invades Iran using a preemptive war pretext and the Syrian conflict is ongoing, the Russians will invade Syria on a humanitarian pretext, and then we'll have Russian and US forces sitting right next to each other on opposite sides of a regional conflict.

I believe the prefered nomenclature is "preemptive surgical strike to prevent spread of WMD's". Not worried at all if Obama is elected.
