We are not champions of Liberty and Freedom. We are warmongering bullies who sell more weapons than any other nation on earth.

We need to admit that to ourselves and drop this delusional self-righteous jingoistic idiocy.

Syria is not about human rights. Its about maintaining the balance of sectarian Islamic power in the Middle East to protect oil supplies. Like Iraq before, we are just proxy 'mercs in a cold (but heating fast) Islamic sectarian war.

This time protects Israel is also in the mix. Israeli-Americans PAC spend billions annually on lobbying on behalf of Israel. They return the favor by spying on us, stealing our tech, and provoking their enemies while hiding under America's skirts.

One of the criticisms is that he is, in fact, showing the slightest amount of support.

We're not just standing idly by, doing nothing.
We're getting ready to ship a crap-load of weapons to the rebels so the body-count will go up to a repectable level.

If they manage to kill off enough of each side, we might be able to convince the Palestinians to move north and make that their new homeland.

Kill two birds with one stone.

Its slightly different in Bangladesh's case. US was ready to help Pakistan until Russia gets in and say, if you do that, and we're getting in too, from the other side.

And besides the fact that HW Bush vetoes an UN bill to stop the genocide.

And once that level of support increases, it will be too much.  Maybe I'm being too cynical, or maybe I just remember what happened with Libya.

I always thought Syria wasn't our problem because we didn't care much for either side.

Srsly, the establishment is a Russian puppet, the opposition is Islamic extremists.

Some people cannot get the Cold War's Domino effect out of their brains.  Except this time instead of communism, it's militant Islam.

OK, I'll try again. I think the problem is that you don't know what I am talking about. Subby mentioned Bangladesh as a place where USA intervened to stop the killing of innocent people(sarcastically). He was referencing '71 Bangladesh Liberation War against Pakistan. The point that I was making is some of the ways USA actually did the opposite.

Some of them are

- Knowing that there was a genocide going on but keeping quiet about it (See Blood Telegrams in Wikipedia)
- Vetoing a bill (by George HW Bush) on UN assembly to stop the genocide saying it was Pakistan's internal matter
- Wanting to provide navy support to Pakistan, but backing off after USSR warns that they might get involved as well (Both country having ships waiting in Indian ocean)

Makes sense now?

Syria is a nation with whom we have no ties.  We all feel that governments shouldn't mow down their own citizenry in an effort to stop militants, but we don't even have leverage with the regime and the rebels are only appealing to us because we have the best arms.  I can't imagine a sectarian, Islamic state of Syria is going to have any of our regional interests in mind, including a continuing-to-exist Israel.  I also see our providing weapons to the rebels as something that will prolong the war but unlikely to drive peace talks, so thus more refugees, civilian casualties, chemical weapons deployments, and starvation.

I wouldn't want to be the one trying to make this decision.
 
2013-06-18 02:08:18 PM
Saxby's just pissed because U.S. soldiers, XE contractors, et al., aren't contributing to the slaughter. Missed opportunity! Do our bullets still kill brown people? How do we really know for sure? War Now!
