Weve got to do something about Syria! goes the common Western refrain.
Actually, no you dont.
What? Youre saying we should just do nothing?? goes the common response.
Yeah thatd be great. Definitely please get as far away from Syria as possible, thanks.
Arguing that the Western war machine is a good way to bring about peace and justice in Syria is like arguing that the gasoline which was used to start a house fire can also be used to extinguish it.
The cutesy fairy tale you will hear from empire loyalists is that what started out as peaceful protests slowly morphed into a battle between the Syrian government and various terrorist factions, with the West only backing the terrorists later on in the conflict. This is false.
Last October, former Qatari Prime Minister Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani admitted on television that the U.S. and its allies were actively involved in shipping weapons to violent extremist groups in Syria from the very beginning of the war there in 2011. In an article titled The day before Deraa, the American Herald Tribunes Steven Sahiounie documents how CIA-backed foreign mercenaries/terrorists were already in place ready to go prior to the outbreak of violence in Deraa in March 2011. It is now an openly admitted fact that the CIA and U.S. allies have been arming known terrorist factions in Syria.
The violence in Syria that you see today is the direct result of a deliberate and ongoing destabilization campaign by the Western empire against a nation it has had marked for regime change for a very long time. The war machine that ignited this fire is working to manufacture public support for hosing it down with gasoline...

Arm the Kurds and let them kill Turkish soldiers.
I know there’s a communist group among the kurds and their values don’t align with ours.
How much worse does Turkey’s?
#### them and #### nato.
hell we armed osama. I think we can arm thse folks. I hope we already are.
Anyway, besides non communist Kurds and christians, any fighter that dies is one less fighter to worry about
Obama made the calculation that replacing Assad with Al Qaeda was a good trade, mostly because the Saudis and Turks assured him they could be controlled or replaced later. Unfortunately for everyone, they started slaughtering indigenous Christians which made it impossible for normal Americans to accept this policy. Turks didn’t care, but we do.
Plus, it didn’t make much sense to overthrow Assad, Iran’s number one ally, while helping Iran get a nuke.
If you want to overthrow Assad as a strategy toward containing Iran, it starts to make some sense. But again, not if your replacements wiped out every minority tribe in the entire region and hate you just as much as Assad ever did.
Geopolitics makes strange bedfellows. We might well prefer communists to jihadists. Like preferring strychnine to cyanide.
Are we playing with a full deck here?
Christians end up with the short end of the stick in scads of global conflicts.
Weve got to do something about Syria to slow Climate Change.
Weve got to do something about Syria to reduce big oil pollution.
Weve got to do something about Syria, the Saudis are busy in Yemen.
Weve got to do something about Syria, the UN is counting on us.
Weve got to do something about Syria or the EU will impose tariffs.
Weve got to do something about Syria as THE World leader.
Weve got to do something about Syria for the children.
Weve got to do something about Syria in the name of Islam.
We might have to just swallow it that Assad and Iran are in Russia’s pocket like North Korea is in China’s, but not as bad off. Let Russia tend that baby and reap the kudos or raspberries thus appertaining.
Our effort should be to beef up Israel to help keep the Golan Heights safe.
If muslims are killing other muslims what’s the problem? Get the Christians out of there and let them have at it.
I lean toward Trump’s original position. Wipe out ISIS, since they were the ones most actively and publicly wiping out Christians. Then go home.
Assad is not worthy of our support, but he by default wound up being the safest regime for Christians in the region. Anyone wanting to move against him should be able to prove to us that Christians will be safer under their rule than under his. Our government never speaks in those terms. But Americans should not be asked to support any force that is going to put their co-religionists on camera while sawing off their heads.
Christians hate to walk away from centuries old churches.
All discarded for his suppression of Communist insurgency.
Without Iran, Syria (especially Assad Jr.) could have been enticed to join Egypt's (Sadat's) grand Peace with Israel, and the Iran - Iraq war would have been highly unlikely, and Lebanon would likely have been able to continue it's Christian - Muslim sharing of power.
Qadaffi's Libya did give up WMD's, Terrorist support and sanctuary and he still would be alive to continue enforcing that.
Finally, it would have been unnecessary to kiss and enrich the Saudi (group's) ass for 9/11 and Subversive Mosques in America.
The continued war on Christians and Jews in the Middle East exists only because Communists find serendipity in killing God while destabilizing civilization's progress for political gain.
Oh yeah, I might mention that the Commies I mentioned haven't associated with Russia for a quarter Century.

Someone should ask the Democrats why it is up to the United States to act unilaterally on “Syria”.
Enough of this and it could get crazy:
Like we could end up with a $20 trillion dollar debt or something, ya know..?
Sounds crazy, I know.
Have fun, Israel —I’ll be the whole trumpet section when/if you win.
short version: US tries to respond to world outcry at the atrocities and ISIS activity in [insert country name here] Syria. Because the US isn’t able to fix someone else’s mess in 10 minutes, the US is bad, even if they spend countless treasure and lives trying. Syrian elitists go back to pretending there is no problem, and if there was a problem it was the fault of the US and so they owe us nothing.
And the world turns.
Pull out and let them kill each other. No tech. No trade. Call us when the population is back down to 4th century B.C. levels.
