Washingtons decision to arm Syrias Sunni Muslim rebels has plunged America into the great Sunni-Shia conflict of the Islamic Middle East, entering a struggle that now dwarfs the Arab revolutions which overthrew dictatorships across the region.

Maybe this will go where the Spanish Civil War didn’t, full scale multi nation war. Maybe we do need a Daladier and Chamberlain this time around.
Arms manufacturers are having a party as we speak. And they partied on these dates as well.
Iran Said to Send Troops to Bolster Syria

Iranian soldiers fighting for Assad in Syria, says State Department official
May 21, 2013
Yaaay..! We get to fight Iran AND Russia...!!
EVERYONE LOVES US..!!!
Much-vaunted RESET BUTTON for everyonnnnnnne...!!
Combined with Kristinn’s post “U.S. Puts Jets in Jordan, Fuels Russian Fear of Syria No-Fly Zone” I’m concerned that our president and secretary of state (who served in Vietnam) will blunder us into war. with an enemy he seeks as allies and co-religious.
No. We need to sit back and watch the bastards exterminate each other.
Can someone refresh my memory? Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys in Syria? I can’t seem to figure it out.
Does that mean Obama’s Nobel peace prize will be taken back?
I’m standing with Syria and Russia on this one but not Iran.
The Caliph is a Sunni, so he’s backing his side.
Don’t worry, Caliph Obama has it under control.
Looks like Obama got his bluff called if this is true.
Iran doesn’t have the S300’s but probably has enough other weaponry to bring down a couple of patrolling aircraft. I can’t imagine him risking that, but we’ll see.
In depth analysis here on the implications of the US/EU involvement in Syria (slight leftist bias - less than expected from a hard left news source).
I’m gonna need a scorecard for this one.
they are all bad guys and if iran russia and the us get in that is still all bad guys
It’s a ‘skunk fight.’ Naturally Bam wants in.
This should be interesting, especially if Russia puts its foot down
Syria’s Christians make up 10% of the population there. Under Assad, they have been allowed to live in peace.
America’s “allies”, the rebels, have been murdering these Christians as fast as they can. According to a recent report, the rebels have wiped out an entire Christian town.
There are no good guys.
But Obama wants to side with the side that Al Qaeda likes over the baddies that we have known for decades.
i meant the combatants not the victims
And obamma wants to supports the rebels? Why may I ask???
no blunder. they will do it on purpose
he’ll get another one
Cool. Wait until Iran’s troops show up and THEN give the rebels just enough arms to keep things in balance. Make this baby last 10 years!
In 37 both Daladier and Chamberlain kept their countries out of the Spanish Civil War even though these was much enthusiasm among the left in each country to oppose the Fascists.
Because they're killing Christians....
He just wants to give them bigger weapons to get a bigger body count.
That’s 4000 *more* thugs that Iran’s sending — not to mention that their proxies the Hizbullah were sent in months ago.
Americas allies, the rebels, have been murdering these Christians as fast as they can. According to a recent report, the rebels have wiped out an entire Christian town.
I agree with your post. But on a side note, I do not understand why muzzies have fully automatic rifles & RPG's & surface-to-air rockets, etc, etc., all the way down to 5 yr old child muzzies. And yet 10% of Syria's population who are Christians, apparently have no weapons or home-grown militia to defend themselves. Everybody else (lefties, muzzies) all are armed to the teeth except for Christians in all other nations. And we are just an eyelash away from losing our 2nd Amendment rights here in the U.S. It's time to bring on the battle....let's git 'er done!
Probably eliminates my need to worry about retirement money.
I’ve got the gas mask, the ‘bug-out bag’, potassium iodide tablets—the whole nine yards.
What I’m wondering though is whether to pack Graham crackers, marshmallows and Hershey bars.
Would it be a bad thing to make s’mores while the world is blowing itself up?
Thanks for the ping. Just as the U.S. is closing bases in Germany and Spain.
this is being played out like this so that Israel can attack iran and against the current backdrop that won’t seem like that much of a big deal.
people have thought that Obama didn’t like Israel but that is just a smokescreen.
American jews have a huge influence on our policy towards Israel.
It’s a standard stunt of Obie’s to show up at the end of a conflict, make a few meaningless contributions, then take credit for solving the problem. It’s worked for him on the domestic front, but it’s not going to work here. This isn’t a situation where he can con the French into fighting the battle, and it isn’t a situation where either side is anywhere close to failing. So he’s really biting off more than he can chew.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Yeah, that ‘leading from behind’ drill doesn’t work so well outside the Beltway or a Chicago bathhouse.
But he must be getting pressured, I suspect by Brennan and Jarrett especially. He’s way too frisky right now.
I suppose they’re looking for a pretext to divert attention from their domestic troubles. Like Clinton.
Russia already has troops on the Syrian Border on stand by....not to mention their fleet in Syria’s port.
I’m just going to say that Syria will not go silently into the night by any means...Assad has said when he was asked in interviews would he leave Syria...” Why would I do that, Syria is my home, Syria is my country.”
He is going to continue to fight this and will indeed use everything he has to not let “His Country” be given over to the Islamist terrorists....nor will he bow to any outsiders that attempt to subject Syria to the Mulsim brotherhood.
Looks like the makings are in play for a proxy war with US and Russia...not to mention the whole MID-East uprising is still who has control of the oil revenues.
Which rebels? The terrorists who have taken over the rebels or the rebels who have long ago lost their control of their side.
If they’re killing Christians..you can bet it’s the Islamic terrorists coming in.and those establishing control against Assad.
The protestors who began this have long gone home or out of the country.
Former ambassador Bolton and Foxnews analyst Col. Hunt both just said we need to stay out of that mess.
GeronL....If obama does this he is breaking the law. I read the section earlier today that he can’t do this...but then we know the law doesn’t mean squat to him anyway. ...does what he wants and then lets the squabbles begin after the fact while he moves his agendas forward.
Great cast for us: nobama, hagel & skerry. Great leaders...no?
Let’s see, Russia, Iran, USA, Syria, Al Qaida, what could go wrong?
Never fear,,,barry says he has it all under control!
Zbigniew Brzezinski on Syria: US is engaging in “mass propaganda”, “Who’s fighting for democracy?”
Which rebels? The al-Qaeda affiliated ones armed and funded by our tax dollars.
Well yes then...they are the ones killing Christians. ...and without hesitation of course...and not just Christians...they’re even killing Syrians regardless of what side they are on.
We know these disgusting pieces of crap love war, love fighting ..love killing...and have no fear whatsoever of death. They are killing machines.
As for the US tax dollars funding them....just what do you think any American can do to stop that? Same with funding abortion etc.? Same with all the corruption and money flowing into the coffers of whatever the name is of what is now leading our country? All I know is it’s not America anymore.....it’s Obamaland.
So do we just stop paying taxes...refuse to buy obamacare...stop paying any tax on anything? I’m quite serious...what is the answer?
Great questions. I wish I had answers for them.
