    for letting me know.

    I could make no sense of the focus only on infiltrators from terrorist groups.  Is there anyone here that believes that in that part of the world, these terrorist-types are not going to take advantage of any situation they can?

    That in no way alters the fact that the Syrian revolution began in March 2011 peacefully, by the people of the country, and over human rights abuses by Assad.  And these folks are still there, caught up in a violent struggle that Assad started.

    Oh, and the CIA may be there, in some fashion, reportedly. I'd like to know if anyone thinks the CIA is absent from anywhere, in some fashion.

    •  Exactly, and both sides will committ HR abuses if (3+ / 0-)

      the war goes on long enough. These people argue all the shit that necessarily attaches itself to the situation but went you cut away the wool, you have a people that started out peacefully demanding change that have been forced to take up arms in self-defense.

      I remember thinking, why are these supposed leftists running around with their hair on fire, warning me about skeery al Qaeda Mooslems?  They sound like Pat Buchanan during the Egyptian protests, or George Bush during the lawyers' protests in Pakistan.
