  •  IMO David Ignatius is full of crap (5+ / 0-)

    Syria has been a country that even though we may sympathize with the rebels and fear for them has rebels that we are not really understanding. It behooves us, imo, to understand the kind of rebels that are there and I don't think we do.

    Iran is Israelis idea of a bogeyman. I don't see why they let us invade Iraq. Iraq was the counter to Iran before Dumbya decided to invade. Now Iraq isn't.

    But quite frankly, I am amazed that any of our reps pay any attention to what the "average person" thinks. We are not the people who put the clink into their coffers with the zeal the CoC or Kochs do.

    •  Our reps actually DON'T pay any attention (0+ / 0-)

      to what the average person thinks unless that opinion comports with what the reps already want to do.  That's the only time the reps cite polls of public opinion to bolster their political arguments.

    •  I think the Israelis "let us invade Iraq..." (0+ / 0-)

      ...because Iraq, which we were assured would "greet us with flowers and sweets," was to become the jumping-off point for the ultimate target, Teheran.
