Several Arab countries have dispatched mercenaries and fighters to take part in the ongoing battle against the government of President Bashar al-Assad. In what ways do these countries benefit from instability and insecurity in Syria? Why are they sending terrorists and fighters to Syria?

A: That Saudi Arabia and Qatar are both involved when they are both allies of the United States yet support diverse objectives reflects the complexity of the situation. Qatar supports the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, which came to power in Egypt and Tunisia, but where the Egyptian military coup has now stemmed that ascent. The U.S.-Saudi alliance appears to be intended to minimize the influence of the Brotherhood, while creating a counter-balance to the influence of Iran in the Middle East, which Israel also supports.

While the Brotherhood was founded in 1928 and may be the best organized and most politically powerful Arab political movement, its participation in the attempt to assassinate Gamal Abdel Nasser led to a political crackdown in Egypt, where many of its followers found refuge in Saudi Arabia. After supporting the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, the Saudis appear to be increasingly concerned about an increase in its influence, which they fear will promote Shiite interests at the expense of the Sunnis.

The Persian Gulf Cooperation Council–which was created to fashion a common plan among the Sunni monarchies of Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and Oman–to resist Iran and support the Syrian rebels–has its own internal conflicts, where Saudi Arabia and Qatar are especially concerned that the Assad regime might prevail and the influence of Shiite Iran be enhanced. It therefore appears that a mix of religious and political motives have led to their involvement with and support of the Syrian rebels.

Q: There are certain Western states who are opposed to the involvement of Iran in the peace talks to end the crisis in Syria. Why do these countries don’t accept the fact that Iran is an essential and integral part of solution for bringing to an end the two-year long unrest in Syria?

A: The United States may be attempting to replay the events in Afghanistan by providing weapons to the rebels, where Stinger missiles, especially, were instrumental in shooting down large numbers of its helicopters and planes and driving the Soviets out of Afghanistan, which is well portrayed in the film,“Charlie Wilson’s Role”, apart from omitting the crucial role of Osama bin Laden, who was “our man in Afghanistan”. The demonization of bin Laden and of al-Qaeda for the attacks of 9/11, which were carried out by the CIA, American neo-cons in the Pentagon and the Mossad, further complicates understanding what has been taking place in Syria. Al-Qaeda was a creation of the CIA.

For Western nations to oppose the participation of Iran in peace talks is completely absurd. Since important elements of the Syrian rebel force have openly allied themselves with al-Qaeda, current US foreign policy in attacking al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, but supporting it in Syria, is inconsistent and even bizarre. This case represents the kinds of complications that are compounded by one set of lies (about 9/11) becoming intertwined by another – in relation to Syria and Iran. The duplicity of the US media makes it very difficult, if not impossible, for the American public to understand the depths of duplicity of US involvement in the Middle East, which is predicated upon lies nested within lie

very funny but sadly--ALL TRUE:

Jay Leno on the scandals


"I was going to start off tonight with an Obama joke, but I don't want to
get audited by the IRS."

On NSA surveillance: "We wanted a president who listens to all Americans -
now we have one."

On a new IRS commissioner: "He's called 'acting commissioner' because he has
to act like the scandal doesn't involve the White House."

On closing the Guantanamo prison for terrorists: "If he really wants to
close it, turn it into a government-funded solar power company. The doors
will be shut in a month."

Concerning the Benghazi, Associated Press, and IRS scandals: "Remember in
the old days when President Obama's biggest embarrassment was Joe Biden?"

On Obama saying he didn't know about the IRS scandal: "He was too busy not
knowing anything about Benghazi to not know anything about the IRS."

"The White House has a new slogan about Benghazi: Hope and change the
subject."

"It's casual Friday, which means that at the White House, they're casually
going through everybody's phone calls and records."

"It is not looking good for President Obama. Today his teleprompter took the
fifth."

"Fox News has changed its slogan from 'Fair and Balanced' to 'See, I told
you so!'"

"These White House scandals are not going away anytime soon. People in Kenya
are now saying he's 100 percent American. That's how bad it's gotten."

On Obama's commencement address: "He told the young graduates their future
is bright unless, of course, they want jobs."

On a Chicago man who set a record for riding a Ferris wheel: "The only other
way to go around and around in a circle that many times is to read the
official report on Benghazi."

On White House claims of ignorance on the scandals: "They took 'Don't Ask,
Don't Tell' out of the Pentagon and moved it into the White House."

The Daly Show has tons of clips showing the hypocrisy and lies aired on FOX. You should Google some of the YouTube videos, its hilarious.
There's a friendly rivalry between Stuart and O'Reilly, and I've watched the Daily Show myself when he makes fun of O'Reilly. There's a satirical bias in those clips and they aren't always on target.

It would be easy for a conservative satirist to show the hypocrisy and lies in the main stream media and this administration even without bias. But that would be the news and not comedy.

Keep in mind you're watching a liberal comedy show. Only liberals think it's news. Conservatives have more sense. There's far too much at stake to waste time laughing and making fun of the liberal media who never take anything seriously.

Its funny only DEMOCRATS and OBAMA supporters went to school in AMERICA so they are the only ones who can have understanding of anything like NJ RAIDER1 bruce ratner had nothing to do with the NETS GOING TO BROOKLYN ONLY JAY Z and OBAMA WHAT ABOUT THIS GUY NJ RAIDER 1 CLOWN jay z was used to diffuse the dislocation of low income people.MetroTech Center and Atlantic Center[edit]He developed the $1 billion complex of nine buildings in downtown Brooklyn, currently the third largest business district in NYC called MetroTech.[1][6] He built a 393,000 square-foot shopping mall at the intersection of Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues in the 1990s.[1][7]

Ownership of the Nets[edit]The prolific and controversial[7] Ratner (he was among other things one of the biggest spenders in New York state on lobbying politicians according to the New York Times)[1] first became owner of the Nets when he headed an ownership group that purchased the franchise from YankeeNets for $300 million. Ratner's group beat out an ownership group led by Charles Kushner and former New Jersey governor Jon Corzine. Ratner relocated the Nets to New York City, specifically to build an arena in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn even though there was desire to keep them in New Jersey.

The Barclays Center is now the centerpiece of a $3.5 billion sports arena, business and residential complex called Atlantic Yards. This project is being built by Ratner's company, Forest City Ratner Companies.

Bruce C. Ratner did not pretend to be much of a basketball fan when he paid $300 million in 2004 for the New Jersey Nets. Before long, the team had the worst record in the National Basketball Association, and he had a reputation as one of the worst owners in professional sports.

But he also had the leverage he needed to pull off a real estate megadeal.

The purchase was the most glaring demonstration of Mr. Ratner’s single-minded dedication to a goal: building a 22-acre,$4.9 billion project in the heart of Brooklyn, the largest development project in the borough’s history. Though the Atlantic Yards plan also called for residential towers, a significant portion of which will be subsidized, he sold it to the public as a way to finally bring professional sports back to the borough.

“So, how did we get here?” Mr. Ratner asked last week, almost giddy, at the ribbon cutting of the nation’s most expensive basketball arena, the Barclays Center.“We first needed to buy a basketball team, and against all odds we did it.”

That acknowledgment highlights a characteristic that emerged again and again over the past nine years: Mr. Ratner, one of the most prominent and polarizing figures in real-estate-mad New York, may portray himself as a reluctant developer, but he will do what is necessary to get a deal done.

He forgets his place. Narcissists and radicals often do.

It's not his place to comment on whether the "cops were wrong" or Trayvon would "look just like him" without knowing any of the facts beforehand. His opinions don't matter nor are they welcomed when it involves racially charged elements in the local news.

He does this because he doesn't know any better and to intentionally create derisiveness. He makes himself look foolish interjecting on local matters, especially racial matters, which Presidents don't and shouldn't put themselves right in the middle of - whether black, white or both.

It emphasizes his inexperience and spotlights his inability to remove himself from anything that doesn't promote his own bias.

If we had a President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief who knew better, we'd have a credible POTUS and CIC who would be more concerned about the state of the union instead of a phony, self-centered, radical liberal who doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut instead.
