(The New York Times)   NYT finally states the obvious: There is no secular "rebel" fighting force in Syria. It's all either Islamist groups, or Al Qaeda, so why are we sending Al Qaeda aid? Is Assad worse than Al Qaeda?   (nytimes.com) divider line 15

MyRandomName: PunGent: GORDON: One thing for sure, it isn't Obama's fault, because nothing is ever his fault.  He's only the President.

Well, the "red line" crap IS his fault, no doubt about it.

Of course, the neocons have been awfully quiet lately...why, just last year, with Libya and Egypt, they were bragging about how their invasion of Iraq was finally spreading peace, love, and democracy across the Middle East...

So you are choosing to cometely ignore the administration's marketing of the arab spring and go with blaming the gop. Kudos.

So explain to us then how this is Obama's fault then.


Because he had the audacity to be black, intelligent and the President all at the same time.

JustGetItRight: The Arab spring worked out pretty much exactly how conservatives thought it would.


Yes, when you want to know about the inner workings of a religious state, it does make sense to ask your local theocrat.

1 1/2 of 3 is correct. He is half white black and the president.

Sometimes there is no simple choice. Today's allies could be tomorow's enemies. You have to go with what works at the time.

They're just fighting for their freedom... to enslave us all in a global Islamic theocracy.

Dear rebels/Assad:

Congratulations on your victory, and the unification/secession of your nation. If you plan on living to see tomorrow or beyond, I better not hear a farking PEEP come out of that shiathole you call a country.

Doing the thing over and over again, hoping for a different ending? That's the definition of insanity.

How's this for *OBVIOUS*? We should just get the hell out of that entire region. Check back when the dust settles.

There are so many really great reasons for Americans to mind our own business and stay the hell out of the Middles East that a single thread doesn't have space to list them all.
But the dilemma of having to choose to side with either genocidal tyrants or homicidal maniacs is another good one.
