    and particularly to this

    Western governments, including the Obama team, have been extremely sympathetic to anti-Assad groups in Syria and have been looking for any reason to intervene militarily in that civil war. Secretary of State Kerry has already deepened America’s commitment there by allocating more money and resources to opposition groups and opening the door to direct supplies of weaponry and other assistance in the future.
    Generally the view from this side of the world, Europe and the Middle East, is that the Obama administration has being doing quite a good job at staying out of Syria, dealing with the situation in Iran, and slowly winding down US involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. All while having to deal with the political minefield of US politics where many push very hard for expanding US military adventurism.

    Lamb chop, we can quibble what to call it, but I think we can both agree it's creepy.
