    the president to do or say.

    Not what he's saying now, which amounts, I glean, to being with the terrorists dictator, but otherwise...

    •  War with Assad (0+ / 0-)

      I think he wants the US to send in the US military, though the level of involvement he desires is hard to discern.

      •  Clayborne wants another Libya. Unfortuntely (0+ / 0-)

        the international situation will not allow it. Also, he fails to recognize that the political/religious/ethnic situation within Syria is closer to Iraq's than it is to the Libyan.

        Claiborne has reduced the Syrian conflict to good, honest freedom fighters versus evil, murderous dictator. In his mind it has become an existentialist fight between good and evil with no room for nuance.

        He reminds me of the Bush years, "You are either with us or you are with the enemy."
