    Of course for them it's all about "anybody can go to Baghdad, real men go to Tehran."

    For them overturning Assad in Syria has always been removing one more obstacle on the path to attacking Iran.

    At the moment though, if there is indeed a US military intervention against genocidal Isis, we'll effectively be collaborating with Iran and helping Assad, and giving the big finger to Saudi and Qatar.

    And you never know, a new Middle East might just come out of it.

    We're shocked by a naked nipple, but not by naked aggression.

      Those two factions are often in opposition and are part of the reason Egypt is such a mess.

      People need to stop treating the Mideast as if it is a simple matter of choosing one side over another.  A better understanding comes when we think of the Mideast as a playground for competing militaristic thugs who care little for the people harmed by guns and bombs.  These are Bullies battling for street space.  Some claim to speak for the people while killing innocents.  Others don't care who they have to kill as long as the money and weapons are on point.

      And yes, Netanyahu is one of the Yahoos.  The address of Israel is on this block.

      The business of Nations is never morality. Moral stories live only through people.
