OBAMA IS TYPICALLY LEADING FROM BEHIND.
KRAUTHAMMER DEFENDS OBAMA AND WANTS US TO DO NOTHING.
THEY ARE ALL WRONG.
WE SHOULD ARM ALL SIDES - ASSAD AND THE SCUM FROM THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD AND AL QAEDA AND ANY SO-CALLED "REBELS"(WHO MAY BE NO BETTER THAN ASSAD OR THE REBELS IN LIBYA) - AND LET THEM KILL EACH OTHER FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE
THE WAR WOULD BE LIKE A SELF-CLEANING OVEN.
WE CAN TELL THE GOOD SYRIANS - IF THERE ARE ANY - TO HIDE UNTIL IT'S ALL OVER OR TAKE REFUGE IN KURDISTAN UNTIL THE DUST SETTLES.
I’ve argued that we’ve had our fill of a region teeming with hatred of the United States and the West, that we have no vital interest in the outcome of internecine savagery between an anti-American Muslim dictator and anti-American Muslim supremacists, and that if they insist on slaughtering each other, we should just buy some popcorn (which is all our tapped-out nation can afford, anyway) and watch the show, accepting the grim silver lining that as they weaken themselves they become less threatening to us.
