Inside the White House debate over Syria.

Just after midnight on April 25th, a Syrian medical technician who calls himself Majid Daraya was sitting at home, in the city of Daraya, five miles from the outskirts of Damascus, when he heard an explosion. He ran outside, and, on the southern horizon, he saw a blue haze. “I’ve never seen a blue explosion before,” he remembers thinking. Seconds later came another blast, and another blue haze.

Majid, who used a pseudonym to protect his identity, told me that his city had become a violent and unpredictable place; for five months, it had been the scene of heavy combat between forces loyal to the regime of Bashar al-Assad and the rebels who have been fighting for more than two years to drive him from power.

Nothing. Not a damn thing. Stay out of it.

The only way the military should go there is if he goes and fights it himself. People like McLame, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, McConnell, Graham. They want to go to war in Syria. Then lead the charge.

Do not send funding, arms, or personnel.

Israel started this, let them finish. Want to be a big boy? Then put on your big boy pants and be a big boy.

None of this shit.

Before the elections, I heard Bibi was over at Romney's house with a big map of the middle east and he was drawing big round bombs with lit fuses all over the place.

Romney was so thankful for the lesson, having flunked geography at school, that he gave Bibi a Wiley Coyote stuffed doll as a thank you. He took the "Made in China" sticker off first though.
