Who Benefits From A War Between The United States And Syria?

Someone wants to get the United States into a war with Syria very, very badly. Cui bono is an old Latin phrase that is still commonly used, and it roughly means "to whose benefit?" The key to figuring out who is really behind the push for war is to look at who will benefit from that war. If a full-blown war erupts between the United States and Syria, it will not be good for the United States, it will not be good for Israel, it will not be good for Syria, it will not be good for Iran and it will not be good for Hezbollah. The party that stands to benefit the most is Saudi Arabia, and they won't even be doing any of the fighting.

They have been pouring billions of dollars into the conflict in Syria, but so far they have not been successful in their attempts to overthrow the Assad regime. Now the Saudis are trying to play their trump card - the U.S. military. If the Saudis are successful, they will get to pit the two greatest long-term strategic enemies of Sunni Islam against each other - the U.S. and Israel on one side and Shia Islam on the other. In such a scenario, the more damage that both sides do to each other the happier the Sunnis will be...

Don't expect him to change his mind for the sake of the good and welfare and wish of the majority, he is set to go so he will go the commander in chief. He as the leader will get ypu deeper in debt however as if the debt isn't deep enough.

it will be end of Syria, because after coming all dark scenarios to life it will be next pupetic country ruled by puppetic, corrupt fakes, who will pray to obumbe and kerry for more and more money to their pockets, it will be poverty and it will be long term civil war just as in Iraq and just as in Afghanistan, just as in Pakistan and Yeemen- all these countries are result of such politics. As result, it will be win of local psychopaths from israel and saudi arabia, which lead to new civil wars as fight for hegemony, who will win fanatical judaism or fanatical wahabism there?

More lies from a right wing nut. Here's the facts and a link to a cool website that rebuffs 5 of the ignorant claims by fools. I know, I know, facts confuse idiots.
__________
Obama has played more golf than any president in history
This isn't even close to being true. Now, there's no question that he plays on a regular basis: 104 rounds from January 2009 through Aug. 4 of this year, the last time he played, according to Mark Knoller, the longtime White House correspondent for CBS Radio. That puts him about in the middle when compared with other duffers-in-chief. It's less than Bill Clinton, and a lot less than Dwight Eisenhower, who played more than 800 rounds over eight years four times as often as Obama plays.

And why is it an outrage if the president, who heads one of three branches of government, golfs 104 times in three-and-a-half-years, but the head of another branch of government, the Speaker of the House, plays four times as much? You heard correctly: John Boehner once told Golf Digest that he plays upwards of 100 rounds a year. Seems like a double standard, no?

that really was an incredibly stupid comment to promulgate to the world, when he should have known he had no good options available to him is syria did cross the line in the sand he drew...

the Obama admin. has continually shown an utter and complete lack of PR prowess. which is really amazing considering how well they use social media in campaigning...

I'm thinking Bill Clinton aka Slick Willie came up with this idea. Say what you want to about Clinton, but he is a political genius. Like Woodtick said a few posts back, Obama'a PR people have not done a good job.
