    That's the understatement of the week . . . and if that's what our Syria policy is based on . . .

    The situation is so much like Iraq . . . take the lid (Saddam, Assad) off and watch it boil.  The chance of a "negotiated settlement" is zero . . . apart from the present government there is no one to "negotiate" with.  And as in any power vacuum the meanest, nastiest most brutal faction will win.  But that's the real goal . . . not some stable, humanitarian secular State, but Syria in chaos and rubble.  Again, just like Iraq.

    Fake Left, Drive Right . . . not my idea of a Democrat . . .
