America's fate is going in the same direction as Rome, the leaders and elitists have grown corrupt, greedy and violent. They are beginning to resemble the same pathological delusions Hitler once displayed, he invited the wolves and barbarians to the gates, and guess what germany got devoured at the end of the day... The US is over expanding and creating countless enemies, stripping the citizens dry of quality and privilage by waging costly wars while placing them and endless generations in debt, leaving the spoils only to those who waged the wars in the first place whilst making everyone else poorer and weaker...

The US government is steadily reducing the freedoms and capabilities of its people in an effort to some day introduce martial law and create an absolute aristocracy...

Already over 7,000 young American lives and over a Trillion taxpayer dollars wasted in Iraq and Afghanistan, with little to show for it.

There's a lot to show for it. We expanded the shi'ite crescent in Iraq. Now we have to contract it in Syria.

It's kind of like chasing one's own tail. woof woof

We have a chance to do to them what they did to us in Iraq/Afghanistan. Send in small teams of barrel-chested freedom fighters to fix/locate then bomb AQ, Hezbollah, the Assad regime and any other terrorist groups positions while they are all consolidated in one location!

It's preferable that our feckless foreign policy leave us. That's what elections are for, after all.

McCain has 3 core constituencies:

1) People like that blithering woman on TV, blabbering about how Obama is an Aye-rab.

2) Retired Jews living in Arizona retirement homes who suffer from severe constipation every time they hear the word Iran.

3) Gun lobby types and vets who would let him start WWIII on a whim and call it a good decision just because he was a POW.

4) Female bimbos of a conservative bent who vote for him simply because he chose one of them as a running mate.

Of course, there are overlaps between the three. I'll leave it to the demographers to figure out how much of one.

May I expand number 2? I had a brainstorm.

2) Retired Jews living in Arizona retirement homes who suffer from sever constipation at the mere mention of Iran. Many have memory problems and confuse McCain with that old sing-a-long host Mitch Miller and get all excited when he starts his bomb..bomb..bomb..bomb..bomb.. Iran Beach Boy impressions, yelling 'Go Mitch, Go'. They get so overexcited that they have to have an ambulance parked outside ready to whisk them away to the emergency room at a moment's notice. Sometimes, playing Lawrence Welk tunes will bring them back from a major cardiac event, sometimes not.

Update: U.S. training Syrian rebels; White House 'stepped up assistance'
CIA and U.S. military operatives have been secretly teaching Syrian rebels how to use anti-tank and anti-aircraft guns, the Los Angeles Times has learned. The White House refuses to confirm but says 'substantial assistance' is being provided.

No doubt about it,i have also thought for a long time British and probably other Special forces are on the ground directing some of those rebels as they did in Libya in sabotage and assassination,this isn't a civil war its an invasion masquerading as a civil War.

It seems similar to what happened in Libya but on a lesser level.
Makes no sense that the Western World is arming, funding, training Islamic Extremists and helping them take over countries. I am not saying it isn't happening but it seems illogical to me. Although i predicted years ago that Obama would expand on these actions as Bush started it off.
Why are the west working with those whom they fought against for years in Iraq and Afghanistan?
