  •  If US troops are "put on the ground in Syria" (8+ / 0-)
    Obama knows that U.S. troops put on the ground in Syria may finally elicit some serious blowback from a seemingly morally comatose but war-weary U.S. citizenry.
    A war weary nation, so much so, that we ignore the war in Afghanistan now in its 12 year and no quick end in sight, if ever.

    Can we mount some serious blowback, or will we remain as complacent and accepting as we are now?

      you never know what might spark major blowback.  I think that when TPTB see things like viral videos, they get terrified.  The potential is there to do that with political activism too.  Look what happened with that Harlem shake viral video.

      The experts are watching that stuff closely.  Of course most of them are studying it trying to figure out how to make money from it, marketing, etc. but you can bet that the 1% are studying it too.  That's why they want to control the internet.
