Why choose sides at all, in Syria or elsewhere, in the internal affairs of other countries?
It's John McCain, Lindsay Graham and that crowd who want the US involved over there take your questions to them.

I say fk Syria who hosts Hezbollah and is allied with Russia and Iran.

Yesterday Turkey's prime minister called Assad a "butcher" which is strong talk in the Arab world.

Do you think Hezbollah was waiting for armaments before of after the "spontaneous uprising"?
WTH were we doing in Libya, aside from aiding and abetting more failed statehoodism?
Good questions.

Perhaps Obama instigated the "Arab Spring."

In Middle East, public rejects arming Syrian rebels: poll

A Pew Center poll found that large majorities worry that an influx of arms – from Western or Arab sources – will increase violence and instability in the region.

http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Middle-East/20...

so in looking at the implication of another fake war, how does an increase in violence and instability in the region lend it's self to our 'safety'?

in looking at the results of one fake war, it seems to me it makes us less safe.

the unnamed whistle blowers? that like appearing on FOX as long as they keep their identity a secret?

almost as bad as touting a 'report' typed up by the House nutjobs.

The total amount of rebates in 2012 was negligible and the rebate goes to the employer if the employer paid the premiums.

In most cases, the cost of distributing the rebates to employees far exceeds the amount of the rebates, typically $20 per employee.

So, why does Obama support the rebels and constantly issue empty threats of intervention?

TSM, "If Clinton had taken out’ Osama’ who was the Master Mind behind 9/11 neither 9/11 nor the Iraq war would have Happen!! " How stupid can you be? The Clinton Administration ,working with friendly foreign intelligence services in Europe and the Middle East , rounded up, successfully prosecuted in U S civilian courts ,and jailed in American super-max prisons in two years all of the terrorists who masterminded and carried out the 1993 attack /truck bombing in the World Trade Center basement parking garage. Bush/Cheney launched two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan , killed or displaced 5 million Iraqi civilians; nearly 5,000 American soldiers dead over eight years and he never captured or killed Osama bin Laden(epic failure!)

People died, then Obama lied

"Rice contradicted Libyan President Mohammed Magariaf, who said the same day that "this was an attack by Islamic extremists, possibly with terrorist links," Hicks said. "He describes what happens. He tells the truth of what happened. And so, you know, Ambassador Rice says what she says, contradicting what the president of Libya says from Benghazi."

This violated "a cardinal rule of diplomacy that we learn in our orientation class, and that rule is, never inadvertently insult your interlocutor. The net impact of what has transpired is, the spokesperson of the most powerful country in the world has basically said that the president of Libya is either a liar or doesn't know what he's talking about. The impact of that is immeasurable. Magariaf has just lost face in front of not only his own people but the world. And, you know, my jaw hit the floor as I watched this. I've never been &#8209;&#8209; I have been a professional diplomat for 22 years. I have never been as embarrassed in my life, in my career, as on that day."

Eman, Batshit crazy is the political norm for Republicans these days after they lost to Obama in the 2012 election. "ThinkProgress reports that Sen. Lindsey Graham has decided to continue his spectacular temper tantrum over Benghazi, telling Fox News last night, "I haven’t forgotten about Benghazi." ... "Hillary Clinton got away with murder, in my view." He's not using this in its idiomatic meaning, either. He literally seems to think that Hillary Clinton has cleverly wriggled out from under a Murder One conviction via some kind of Machiavellian trickery." ... This is very close to literal insanity. Graham knows perfectly well that these questions have been answered, and he knows perfectly well that Panetta won't tell him anything he doesn't already know. So why is he putting on this performance? My theory is simple: Graham likes being a maverick, but voters in South Carolina don't really want a maverick as their senator. They want a 100 percent ACU-certified hard-right conservative. Since Graham doesn't want to give them that, he has to compensate for it with periodic high-profile eruptions that demonstrate the kind of spittle-flecked hatred of Barack Obama his constituents want. It makes up for his occasional apostasy over climate change or immigration, and shows that he's really one of them even if he does have a few peculiar pet causes they don't understand.

Either that or he really is crazy. Check this out: http://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2013/01...

President Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 and every single democrat voted and said Saddam was an eminent threat and Saddam had to be removed three years prior to 9/11...

The results of Clinton's policies were devastating for Muslim Bosniak people and Chechnya. Just in Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina, over 10,000 Bosnian Muslim (Bosniak) people were killed, including 1,500 children - by the Serb Army who kept the defenseless city under siege, that inflamed Muslim's worldwide...

http://srebrenica-genocide.blogspot.com/2008/...

Tens of Thousands of Muslim children died as a result of Madeleine Albright and Bill Clinton's sanctions imposed on Iraq in February 16, 1993. Iraq could not trade, could not import food, medical supplies, hospital equipment, etc..

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, said it was OK and worth it to kill over a half million Muslim children... which escalated and intensified the hatred and anger from global Muslim's worldwide towards the USA...

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN)-- A never-before-seen al Qaeda video obtained by CNN shows Osama bin Laden declaring war against Bill Clinton, the United States and the West.

The tape of a May 26, 1998, news conference is among 64 obtained in Afghanistan from a source, who said the tapes were found in an Afghan house where bin Laden had stayed...

People died then Obama lied

""I thought it was a terrorist attack from the get&#8209;go," said Hicks, who was in Tripoli during the attack. "I think everybody in the mission thought it was a terrorist attack from the beginning."

Hicks said he never had any indication that there had been a popular protest outside the mission in Benghazi.

"I never reported a demonstration; I reported an attack on the consulate," Hicks said. Stevens' "last report, if you want to say his final report, is,'Greg, we are under attack.'""
