I watched a little news this weekend and hear of big bad Syria and their chemical weapons with 0zer0 & Hitlery both signaling consequences if chemical weapons are used by the Syrians in Syria.
Tell me again WHAT national security interests are endangered by Syrians killing Syrians?
What of Iran? Hitlery has red lines for Syria but nothing for Iran who builds nuclear weapons and threatens our ally Israel>
I have a feeling this is all community organizer theater -the same we saw in both Egypt and Libya...
Keep in mind that Obozo has gone to great lengths to destabilize what were relatively benign regimes throughout the region, to provide (apparently) situations which the Muslim Brotherhood could rise to power. This cannot be blamed on incompetence, simply because the results are too consistent.
A spin off of that is that some serious weaponry has been obtained by the MB which ties in with Al-Qaida, Hizb'Allah, Hamas, and other lovely folks in the region. They also hobnob with other international terrorists, and who knows what may appear on a ship in a US harbor, outside an airport, etc., right here in the US.
If tons of drugs make it across the US border annually, serious weaponry could too.
If Assad retains control, as bloody as that option is, there will be a stable 'peace' imposed, much as Khadaffi imposed on his tribes, or for that matter, Mubarak. Stripping the strong men who kept the region stable from power is the gambit, to remove the structure which kept tribal rivalries at bay. In the ensuing shuffle for power, the plurality of the Muslim Brotherhood, if not majority, will end up taking over and the arsenals of the deposed regimes will be theirs to command.
While we (and, obviously Israel) have skin in the game, Obozo appears to be fighting on the other side.
