None of the brilliant political minds have seemed to consider what may very well be the actual action chosen: Not to do something that creates a winning side, but rather, to do something that maintains a state of uncertainty and chaos, and so keeps Iran significantly occupied there, rather than involved in mischief elsewhere.

Rong thinks he knows things about the players better than the gov't.

He doesn't.

At this point, there is not a side that appears to be better for US purposes than another. However, keeping Asad from winning is probably in our interests.
looks easy from here

As someone with predominantly Irish heritage, my family immigrating during the height of the civil war and thereby subject to conscription in the union army to fight those impoverished southern boys forced to fight a war for the rich, I can say I've got some white nigger heritage. Bleached out even. We've all been niggers at some point. Just a stupid word

Syria child execution puts rebel justice in spotlight



0 0 Google +0 0 0 comments



BEIRUT : Photographs of the bloodied face of a 14-year-old boy executed in front of his parents by jihadist rebels in northern Syria have thrown into stark relief the sometimes extreme justice meted out in rebel-held areas.
Fighters of Al-Qaeda front group the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria accused Mohammad Qattaa of blasphemy but a human rights group said he had done nothing more than use a common Arabic phrase that makes reference to the Prophet Mohammed’s name.
Pictures of Qattaa’s face, bloodied by the three shots that cut short his life on Sunday, spread like wildfire on social media websites, prompting a strong condemnation of his killing from the mainstream opposition.
“If someone shot a dog in the street, people would act,” cried the boy’s grieving mother Umm Mohammed in amateur video footage distributed by activists.
“Where are his rights? He was a child! How could they kill him?
“They killed him right in front of my eyes... May God take revenge on them... I saw his blood streaming down,” she wailed.
“We are with neither side (in Syria’s raging conflict). We just look after ourselves... Why did you kill my son? Is he a terrorist?"
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the militants responsible for the boy’s execution were foreign volunteers with the Al-Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
“A member of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria spoken to by an Observatory activist said the boy deserved to die,” said Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman.
“Those who executed the boy were not Syrian,” he added.

Not only is Barack Obama leading from behind, now he’s leading from behind Bill Clinton.
After dithering for two years over what to do about the slaughter in Syria, the president was finally shoved into action by the past and perhaps future occupant of his bedroom.
Clinton told John McCain during a private Q and A on Tuesday in New York that Obama should be more forceful on Syria and should not rationalise with opinion polls that reflect Americans’ reluctance to tangle in foreign crises. McCain has been banging the gong on a no-fly zone in Syria for some time.

Don’t count on Congress to fix the assault on privacy

George W library and museum beats about the Bush

Under-fire Obama should drop the wistful, petulant approach
The Irish Times takes no responsibility for the content or availability of other websites.
The oddity of Obama’s being taken to the leadership woodshed by the Democrat who preceded him and the Republican who failed to pre-empt him was not lost on anyone. When Obama appointed Clinton “the Secretary of ’Splaining Stuff,” he didn’t think Bill would be ’splaining how lame Barry was.
As Maggie Haberman reported on the Politico website, Clinton said at the McCain Institute for International Leadership that the public elects presidents and lawmakers to “look around the corner and see down the road” and “to win”, not to follow polls.
When the man who polled where to take his summer vacation and whether to tell the truth about his affair with Monica Lewinsky tells you you’re a captive of polls, you’d better listen up.
Citing his own experiences in Kosovo and Bosnia, Clinton said that if you blamed a poll for a lack of action, “you’d look like a total wuss”. He added that “when people are telling you ‘no’ in these situations, very often what they’re doing is flashing a giant yellow light” of caution.

‘Total fool’
According to Haberman, Clinton, who apologised for failing to intervene in the Rwandan genocide, continued: “If you refuse to act and you cause a calamity, the one thing you cannot say when all the eggs have been broken is that ‘Oh my God, two years ago there was a poll that said 80 per cent of you were against it.’ Right? You’d look like a total fool. So you really have to in the end trust the American people, tell them what you’re doing, and hope to God you can sell it.”
That is the problem for Obama: selling it. The silver-tongued campaigner has turned out to be a leaden salesman in the Oval Office. On issues from drones to gun control to taxes to Syria, the president likes to cite public opinion polls to justify his action or inaction. He seems incapable of getting in front of issues and shaping public and congressional opinion with a strong selling job.






what a rats nest eh? Even France and Germany now yammer on about the USA dragging its feet to "solve" the Syrian war.. But but,,, i thought America was the Worlds problem?? Yet every dang time some faction fights another, whom do they squall for to "solve" it? We are NOT the world poleeze. Contrary to the TV commercials touting us as the "global force of good".
I dont give a rip what France, Germany or anyone else thinks really. I dont buy the timing of this since gassings and mayhem have been going on for years there.. We will be dammed if we do, dammed if we dont. So WHY BOTHER.? Why expose our troops to that crap? The first article above i posted shows the "rebels" arent exactly peacnicks are they...

Yeah, private.

Who broke their word? Who had no integrity? Who altered the conversation to meet their needs?

Rong, I particularly like you parading out John McCain, who advocates all sorts of interventions beyond what we are currently doing, on the side that we are currently helping.

Explain that: You don't want us helping the insurgents some, but you are gung ho for helping them a lot????

Of course its not nuclear. Just small arms. And its Syrians going against

What I don't get is why Obama is so fired up about Syria when he could be
'freeing' millions more people who suffer under far worse despots all
throughout Africa. Plus most of those jerks aren't very well armed. Plus
then we would get all their nice minerals instead of the Chinese.

He's not.

He's under the gun by his handlers to do what they want.

His handlers are stupid lying fools who are running the world into ruin on purpose.

Obama can't do much by himself ......
