  •  So we just let Assad slaughter continue. (0+ / 0-)

    Anyway by stopping the Syrian's who are being slaughtered from getting weapons for self-defense make US accessories to the murder in my book.

    •  Even Clinton has stated that giving the rebels (0+ / 0-)

      more weapons would just increase the violence.

      •  The US wants Assad in power (0+ / 0-)

        or keeping the FSA from winning until an "acceptable" alternative to Assad is found.

        If someone was shooting at me and a friend try to hand me a gun but then another guy stops him, I would certainly consider this guy a ally of the person shooting at me and also my enemy.

        I find it very interesting how you line up with US imperialist power. Now you are trying to justify Obama's "accessory to murder" policies by pointing out that his SecState supports him.

        Don't you realize how little real difference there is between Assad's murderous policies of killing civilians with warplanes, and Obama's murderous policies of killing civilians with drones?

        Obama has already shown time and time again that he has no problem seeing civilians slaughtered in Afghanistan, Pakistan ... or Syria.

        Also, Israel wants Assad to stay and Obama wants whatever Israel wants. None of them want to see a truly free Syria that will demand back the Golan height and not hold back the Palestinians among other things.

        •  The only thing the US wants is regime change (0+ / 0-)

          and Syria destabilized into impotence. The Syrian people are secondary to this. Lebanon is next.

          Obama's foreign policy is not much different than Bush's was. He was always a hawk.

          Assad will eventually be turfed out and replaced with a sectarian Muslim government. Millions of secular Syrians will leave the country for good.

          Syria has become a "honey pot" for the Al Qaeda franchisees around the world so things are going to get very interesting in the ME. Blow-back is a bitch.

          What I want is no longer possible. Both sides want to go to war and nothing will stop them. There's not a thing you or I can do about it. The US has never responded to it's people when it comes to it's foreign (mis)adventures.
