(NBC News)   Vladimir Putin apparently under the impression that the US is going to be sending arms to an army of the walking dead. What does he know that we don't??   (worldnews.nbcnews.com) divider line 69

fireclown: Wasn't there video of one of the Syrian resistance leaders eating the heart of a slain enemy?  In the last few weeks?


No way, that was a government plant. Are those guns on the ground yet for our new Glorious AlliesTM? They need them now to defend themselves from a government who went all tyrannical. Why aren't they there?? Why do you hate freedom???

Lexx: We've got a dictator committing atrocities, a fiercely divided internal resistance which has been decimated by the dictator's forces, and a whole bunch of jihadists-for-hire brought in by other countries who stand to gain from Syria's chaos.  The dictator's been proven to use bio-chemical weapons in limited engagements, and the rebels are strongly rumored to have used them as well.  The rebels also are pretty much confirmed to be engaging in rape & cannibalism.

This is one of those rare cases where the correct answer is "both side are just about equally bad.  Send the red cross in with humanitarian aid, but don't actually enable either side".


This is shiate versus Sunni.

Any involvement on our part is lose/lose

stuffy: Could someone tell me if cannibalism violates Islam?
No really I have no idea.


Yep, strictly forbidden.  I guess an exception can be made if there was absolutely no food around and you were starving to death, but otherwise, no bueno.

"Why don't you want to eat me, Johnson?"
"You're not kosher!"
"Depends how we kill him..."

That only one question mark is necessary?

jaybeezey: garkola: There's no particular reason for the US to get involved for Syria because realistically, there's no good outcome. Align with rebels? Why? There's no guarantee that they'll be any better than Assad. Align with Assad? Why?

Let them kill each other, and say "we will deal with whichever government is the legitimate government of Syria."

This. You start giving these guys armor killing tech and you damn well better believe it will be used on allies back in Iraq. I like the revolution, i just think that in this case the revolting are just as revolting as the revoltee.


We have allies in Iraq?

BTW - note the progression

Washington (not the USA) announces support for rebels
Putin says Uh Uh.
Washington moves troops, planes, missiles and bombs to Jordan
Putin says Aw  hell no
Obama makes decision to deny airspace
Putin says Russia will prevent that
Major news story breaks in DC State Controlled media that Putin is a petty thief, stealing Robert Kraft's Superbowl ring.

Please don't make me connect the PR dots for you.

First off, we need a lot of scarfs, purple ones for the regime supporters, green ones for the rebels. This way we can tell them apart.
Secondly, we need to stay the hell away from Syria. There are no good guys to root for, and no good will to be earned.

1derful: Vladimir Putin got crazy game, a judo black belt, and a superbowl ring.

The woman appears to be experiencing an orgasm with simply being touched by Putin.

Can I say wow?

Maturin: Cagey B: Magorn: Well, swap "reasonable" for "self-interested" and you're getting somewhere.

Reasonable foreign policy should be self interested. I don't think it's in the United States' interest to funnel weapons to unknown parties that include radical jihadists. That hasn't worked out very well the last few times.

I thought Ayn Rand was dead.


So is Jesus but that doesn't stop him from getting around.

These same rebels we are supporting, were blowing up our soldiers across the border in Iraq a couple years ago.  Fark them.  Let Assad crush them, then hit him with sanctions when it is all over.

Putin and Obama should just nuke it from orbit.
 
2013-06-18 02:39:26 AM
WOW, those evil rebels are evilest creatures on Earth. Let's just leave Assad alone
