Fark libs that defend Obama on stuff like this, crack me up.  Bunch of farking hypocrites.  Not that I'm keeping score, but I've seen Obama defended on:

NSA spying on American citizens (It was Bush)
Drone strikes on American citizens (they had it coming)
Raiding more medical marijuana facilities than 8 years of  Bush (he was only enforcing the law never mind that he's issued a memo skirting the laws on immigration).
Use of Military in Libya without Congressional approval (it wasn't war!)
And now he's beating the war drum and you're gleefully beating it with him.
Going after whistleblowers (dirty traitors).

I really hate the GOP but liberals folding like a deck of cards on principles I used to think were important to you...piss me off as much as the GOP now.  You have no principles that are sacred anymore.  Stop justifying it because it's YOUR guy.

Radioactive Ass: omnibus_necanda_sunt: THERE ARE FARKING SECULAR REBELS.

DOING NOTHING IS THE BEST WAY TO HELP AL QAEDA.

No. Bombing Assad is the best way to help AQ. The secular rebels should have refused to be involved with AQ in any way and let that be known from the start. History shows us again and again that allowing poisonous elements into an organization of any type eventually leads to that poison taking over the organization. Unless the secular rebels are going to literally kill the AQ elements in their ranks after they win then no matter what I cannot support them, and I don't see that happening. I was behind the rebels until AQ joined them, then I decided that letting Assad be Assad was the better choice in the long run.

Nobody, and I mean nobody, (especially not liberals) cares about Libya anymore - even though it's now a lawless jihadi war zone, more or less run by the Muslim Brotherhood.  However, it was useful for the dutiful state-media leading up to the last election, as it lasted months, not weeks.  'Operation Re-Election' created a lot of those neat commander-in-chief headlines that lead off the evening news (Slick Willy's 'Monica missiles' did the same thing).

Needless to say, there's no reporting on Libya anymore.

Syria will be useful in the exact same way.  The real budget fight is coming up in September.  The government has run out of money again and a large number of Republican lawmakers are refusing to pass a budget that funds Obamacare.

I would expect that the bombing will begin soon and will last as long as necessary for the state-media to remind the public that we must 'rally around the war-time president' and dispense with 'silly partisan bickering' when our troops are in harm's way.

Nice attempt at subject change.  There is no, zero, feedback that Curveball was anything but a talking head that told the spooks what they wanted to hear.  Your premise that he was in effect "due" to be correct on something has no basis in fact.


Fine, if you say so. I wish Sarin gas had a footprint like uranium or plutonium isotopes. At any rate, you never addressed my query about where Syria's gas came from.  Care to try that? They didn't make it.  And Putin didn't give it to them. Neither did Iran. Who did?  The Easter Bunny?

Heron: TuteTibiImperes: The way Morsi was going he wouldn't made Mubarek look like Mother Theresa.  The Egyptian Military stepped in to fix the problem before it got out of hand, and once they've handled the Muslim Brotherhood situation hopefully they step down and allow for democratic elections.

Israel is our strongest ally in the region, and we need to consider their needs in our operations over there.

The Egyptian military never stopped running things. Morsi tried to stand up to them and they proved that. They let that experiment last precisely as long as it took for the westernized urban minority to once more realize it was a minority, and when enough of them were willing to play along with their grandparents' deal to support military rule in exchange for second-hand modernization, they went right back to doing things more or less the way they have been since the Officers' Revolt.

At best, they'll allow a greater patina of powerless civilian control to sit in front of their rule; most likely, they'll just run it as an oligarchic council and shy away from the Strong Man excesses Nasser introduced and which threatened to transform into de facto monarchy under Mubarak(remember, he was trying to pass everything off to his son, whereas typically Head of State status has passed on to the next highest ranked military official when one "President" has stepped down or died).

As to Morsi, you need to understand exactly what he did. He tried to cut out the military and old military political clients from government. The power to legislate without judicial approval was necessary because all those judges are hold overs from the military regime. He attempted to re-install a democratically elected legislature -that yes, was mostly members of his Islamist part but that's because those are who the Egyptians freely elected; that party won for a reason, and that reason is its candidates got the most votes- which the military had disbanded through the Supreme Constitutional Court, whi ...

Depends.  Turkey has a HUGE army and they do NOT want this clusterfark on their border.  If this happens as an UN operation I imagine they'd take a big interest in seeing it run right.

Hit munitions dumps, power plants, communications arrays, airfields, military bases, command HQs, etc.  Basically reduce the Syrian armed forces to rubble and put them on equal footing with the rebels.  Then leave and let them finish fighting it out and figure out how to rebuild.
