Oh, I forgot. Obama is an aye-rab sunni and McCain is a first rate loony.

How can we lose with this dynamic bipartisan tag team?

I'll tell you why. Because we run a serious danger of the CIA getting fed up with being ordered to arm al Qaeda and will stage a military coup.

Of course, maybe you'll like that.

So why is Syria so important? Those people hate us, just like the Libyans do and we're going to have the CIA arm them? The same people who burned the embassy in Benghazi and killed our ambassador. Yet we looked away two years ago, when there was a major uprising in Iran. If anything, that was the one to do something about. Instead the Obama regime has consistently got involved with scenarios, that souls have been avoided and backed the wrong side. Egypt is a good example of that, now we have a second radical Iran to contend with. Further more we continue to prop up Saudi Arabia, which like Iran and Egypt spawns most of the radical Islamic ideologies. There is a zero sum gain by going into Syria. These countries will never be democracies as we understand. They will just go from one regime to another, whether it's a military dictatorship or religious theocracy. Those people have no concept of what freedom is, therefore they will never realize freedom. What I find ironic is, you call yourself antiwar yet you seem to be a proponent of getting involved in another impossible one. <-o

If their willing to follow the constitution, it would be better than our current regime. Now don't you have some Navy Seals to pick a bar fight with or some more conspiracy theories to run down? LOL

Faith would make a better Muslim than Obama.
For a start her prerequisite for foster care is much higher than his.
It's well known he used to moonlight in hospitals with his many forged documents a few years ago.
But what idiot would allow him to carry a any.
If it turns out he drop off when pulling her out , I'd be very surprised.

We must support al qaeda in Syria. It is a ghost and a franchise that anyone can join.
We can commit atrocities so barbaric and blame it on Muslims, this is why Israeli special forces(amongst others) have joined al Qaeda/covert operations in Syria.

Nothing wrong in framing muslims in terrorist attacksm like the Operation Susanah,911, anthrax attacks and many more.

Again I don't give two shits and a popsicle about Syria, its despot tyrannical leader or its Moslem inhabitants. I'm just worried my government is going to get my country drawn into another no win situation. Either way Syria will still be an arch enemy of the United States and always will be, so there's no point in displacing one evil tyrant for another and getting a bunch of our service men killed in the process. Not to mention it's just one more colossal waste of money in a long succession of money wasting.

Reagan Doctrine
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reagan_doctrine
The Reagan Doctrine was a strategy orchestrated and implemented by the United States under the Reagan Administration to oppose the global influence of the Soviet Union during the final years of the Cold War.
While the doctrine lasted less than a decade, it was the centerpiece of United States foreign policy from the early 1980s until the end of the Cold War in 1991.

Under the Reagan Doctrine, the U.S. provided overt and covert aid to anti-communist guerrillas and resistance movements in an effort to "roll back" Soviet-backed communist governments in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
The doctrine was designed to diminish Soviet influence in these regions as part of the administration's overall Cold War strategy.

C.I.A. PRIMER TELLS NICARAGUAN REBELS HOW TO KILL
http://www.nytimes.com/1984/10/17/world/cia-p...
The 44-page booklet, titled ''Psychological Operations in Guerrilla Warfare,'' is a primer on insurgency.
The primer explains how to kidnap and kill officials, blow up public buildings and blackmail ordinary citizens.

The U.S. must make cars, ships, steel, airplanes, PCs, home-electric-appliances, and weapons in the U.S.,
and the U.S. must export those cars, ships, steel, airplanes, PCs, home-electric-appliacnes, and weapons from the U.S. to the world.

The U.S. must not involve wars.
The U.S. must withdraw her American-Forces from Japan, South-Korea, Singapore, Asina, Europe, Afghanistan, and Pakistan now.

Syria is very important, for the armament business. Russians sell arms to the Assadites while America sells arms to the rebels, Make beaucoup moneys. same, same Viet Nam war and all wars globally, each, Russians and Americans, arm opposing sides and become richer and richer. As one poster, each muzz the other side kills is one less muzz the rest of the world has to put up with. bring on your ignorant racist epithet. Like muzz is a race even. muzzieism is a culture with different religions and cultures attached.
arm each side

Yes each side should be armed to wipe each other out. Israel secretly provided support to its enemy Iran during the Iran Iraq war, because everyone else (including the US, the USSR, the Europeans and the Arabs) was supporting Iraq. Israel didn't want to see Iraq get too powerful
