mooselimbs at war with mooselimbs......it’s a good thing.
During the sequester.
I agree! Let them kill each other until there is only one left and then kill him/her. Done!
If you kill off the Alawites you kill off the Christians.
Frankly, if you want to kill the most moslems it is best to send some serious weaponry to the Alawites.
In this case you are nuts. The Alawites are not considered moslem by most moslems ~ and in Syria the Alawite community are, by tradition, the protectors of the Christian community.
This cannot be overstated enough, this will kill christians in the middle east in the end equation...
0bama and the U.S. Senate want to abet Genocide. And Al Qaeda in Syria.
Screw ‘em all.
...and this can be prevented how?
...by tradition, the protectors of the Christian community.
...until they aren't.
Although correct that they are more protective of the Christians it is also true that the Alawhites wiped out entire villages of enemy muslems. I suspect this is payback
Watching Assad fight Al Qaeda in Syria is like watching the ant war when you shovel a mound of red ants on top of a fire ant bed.
No matter who wins there are fewer ants left to bite you.
The Al Qaeda mercenaries that have been attacking Syria and slaughtering Christians and other religious minorities the past two years would not last a week against the Syrian Army without the money,weapons, and support that the US and NATO have been giving them the past two years. Cut off the money and the weapons and the war is over.
With what stinger missiles? Or SA-7s?
After centuries of fighting in the ME, cut off the $$$ and everything will be OK. Who wouldda thunk?
Using logic and reason to come to terms with these vermin is futile.
They - the Syrian so-called “opposition” - shows their true colors and the true card they have been playing all along, from before they were even introduced to the world’s public.
Who is the primary Middle East source of funds and support for the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood and the entire “opposition” movement? Saudi Arabia (home and sponsor of the radical fundamentalist Wahabi sect of Sunni Islam). Why? Two reasons.
Who is Assad? He’s a secular Muslim of the Alawite sect of Sunni Islam. Who are the Alawites? They are “heretics”, according to most other sects of Sunni Islam, including the Wahabi. Maybe now you see why Assad, though an opponent of the state of Israel, like other Arab states, was never of best of friends with the Saudis.
So, given Syrian relative isolation among many other Arabs in the region, who did Assad make friends with? The regime in Iran. And who leads the regime in Iran? Another set of radical fundamentalist cleric theocrats - Shia Muslim theocrats - on the opposite side of Islam from the Wahabi-Sunni.
What has the “Syrian conflict” been from day one?
It’s proxy war within Islam between two separate and divided radical fundamentalist camps within Islam, each vying for Islamic supremacy in the region.
Assad - his dictatorship - was and is an excuse, not a cause (what do you legitimately call the King of Saudi Arabia if not a despot), and the people of Syrian are and will be the victims, including the victims of some victorious “rebellion” if that comes to pass.
The U.S. is again being played for a sucker (like we were when we helped the Saudis and Pakistan create the Taliban and arm the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan) in the name of “U.S. national interest.” History is just repeating itself in Syria.
Let me get this straight: Iran is Shite. The shires will die if the rebels have their way. That means that Iran will lose out. Isn’t Iraq now controlled by shiates?
Just reading that headline one can easily grasp that these Islamic chappies have a lot of anger management issues to get under control before they can consider themselves “self-governing”.
Whose insane idea was it to break up the Ottoman Empire and turn these barbarians loose, anyway?
