  •  This is not Canada's fight. This is a fight that (0+ / 0-)

    started decades ago by western powers, primarily the US, meddling in the MENA for access to it's oil and gas. It's ALL blow-back.

    The US government 'rendered' Maher Arar, a Canadian, to Syria to be tortured. As typical of US politics, Assad was a bastard but he was America's bastard (as was Saddam as was bin Laden and a whole litany of other bad actors).

    About 15% support the rebels and 15% support Assad. The other 70% want both these factions out of the country. That is the side I am on.

    This conflict was militarized almost from the very start with a very large amount of funding and armaments coming from outside the country to give it impetus.

    I see no good ending for this Pandora's box that has been opened other than more strife and war. The US is fucked if they intervene and fucked if they don't - maybe it's payback time?
