Whats-it's-name will probably try to enforce a no flying machine zone, and Russia will then give Syria anti-flying machine thingies. This will all end well. sarc/

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.
