No, we have no right to attempt to topple the Assad regime.
The supposed revolution is a US-backed operation that is funded by Saudi and Qatari money so as to give the US government plausible deniability.
The US government’s actions in Syria are reprehensible.
“The US governments actions in Syria are reprehensible.”
Doing nothing while 100,000 people are killed, is reprehensible
I agree. We need to learn our lesson from Iraq. We have no dog in that fight. Even IF Assad used the sarin, it’s not for the USA to step into the middle of it. If the UN wants to do something let them. Our blood and treasure is worth more than that,imho
We can’t fix it. The world body may wish to act but it’s not up to the USA to go it alone. There have been many more killed in multiple civil wars raging in African countries for years. Genocide, ethnic cleansing, torture. Is the USA supposed to bomb every country with a government that oppresses it’s people? It’s not our place.
Obama started the war. Wake up.
Were it not for the US and Saudi support for terrorist, there wouldn’t be 100,000 deaths. In act there wouldn’t be a war. We are the terrorists.
how many of those 100000 were killed by the rebels?
How many of the rebels are from outside of Syria?
How many of the rebels are Al Quaida terrorists?
How many of the rebels will go to other countries later - maybe including US - to use their training for terrorist attacks?
Why aren't Obama, Putin, Assad and Zawahiri considered Islamophobes?
“We cant fix it. “
We had a much better chance of doing so if we’d gotten involved and helped arm the opposition 2 yrs ago before the mb & alqaeda got involved.
Just as we had a chance to help overthro the regime in Iran in 2009 but Obama dithered and blew it.
“How many of the rebels are from outside of Syria?
How many of the rebels are Al Quaida terrorists?”
In the very beginning?......close to none - that’s when we needed to send weapons & ammo.
Of course, the Iranians have had IRGC & hezbollah in Syria for many yrs
Do you really believe that Assad used those chemical weapons? He had nothing to gain.
“Do you really believe that Assad used those chemical weapons? “
Yes I do. And I don’t think it was the 1st time.
Nothing to gain? He’d been fighting trying to get rid of the opposition in that area for months not making any headway. The hope was that chem.weapons would force them out. His forces are so enept, he’s still trying to get them out of there.
What will the saber-rattling psychopath in the White Hut and the Sociopath of State do now? No WMDs used in the recent volley? /moral outrage. Cool. Put the War Powers Act back in the drawer. Get a tee time after you shine Pooty Poot’s shoes. Congress can caddy. We all look good don’t we?
“We should have started bombing Assad’s airfields and damaged as many military installations as possible in the first 24 hrs after the sarin attacks. “
Assad didn’t do it:
UN accuses Syrian rebels of carrying out sarin gas attacks which had been blamed on Assads troops
I hope that the Syrian forces prevail in this struggle against AlQaeda. We’ll all be better off if hey do.
That article is from May. And it’s one UN woman who was not an investigator herself.
