I remember a conversation on O'Reilly's show last night where it was commented that what is going on in Syria is basically Japan versus Germany of WWII - as in, should we side with either Assad or the opposition? Either way...

It was also commented that where in the Constitution does it say that we have to pick a side when it comes to our enemies? Or that why should we have to stop our enemies from killing each other?

Don’t worry. This has no relevance now. This was when Bush was in power.

Dennis omitted, “If there is a strike, our Navy/Marines, and Spec Ops will be part of al Qaeda’s military.”

It’s a rare moment that I agree with Dennis Kucinich on anything. This is one of those moments... DK is spot-on.

When I have to agree with this nut shows that even a stopped clock can be right twice a day.

“what is going on in Syria is basically Japan versus Germany of WWII - as in, should we side with either Assad or the opposition?”

The best thing to do in that case is supply weapons and ammunition to both sides... or just support whichever side starts losing, to make the fight last longer for maximum damage all around.

Which is what Reagan did during the Iran-Iraq War

John Kerry even met with Assad a while back and had glowing things to say about him, IIRC.

Same here. He’s like a strangely hit golf ball that crashes onto the billiard table: some comedy, some serendipity, and some random ruin usually in store.

I am having a political identity crisis because I agree with Dennis Kucinich.

Also, O'Reilly was trying to bait Lt. Col Peters in comparing Assad to Hitler in the 1930s and he would be on the side of doing nothing. Peters zinged back that the comparison was if the Nazis and the Japanese were fighting would you want the US to pick a side? BAM, O'Reilly knew he got owned.

You have to respect somebody who speaks on principle rather than party loyalty. Most of the Leftists who were “anti-war” during the Bush years either keep quiet or actively support wars now because of loyalty to Obama and the Democratic Party.

There’s nothing more disgusting in politics than the “it’s bad when the other guy does it, but OK as long as it’s one of our own,” no matter which side of the aisle it’s coming from.

What about a so called Republican like Robert King who is beating the drums for war?
