Syria: Obama’s Iraq and Probably Worse



Without proof of which side of the Syrian
conflict may or may not have launched
chemical weapons, the United States is
ready to launch Cruise Missiles against
the Assad regime. The vast majority of
American citizens do not want our
country to become involved in the battle
between the forces of the government
and the rebels, who are supported by al-Qaeda. Our President, who is dominated
by the Republican Party will undoubtedly
take action against the government of
Syria without proof. This will be
Obama’s Iraq, and may possibly create
worse and more serious results.

Secretary of State John Kerry made a
speech which declared the Assad regime
responsible for chemical weapons
attacks. But the fact is, he has no
evidence.

This is a situation that the United States
cannot win. Assad is aligned with Russia
and Iran. The rebel forces are Islamic
extremists aligned with al-Qaeda. Why is
the United States becoming involved in
this struggle?

There is no advantage for the U.S.
intervening in an area of the world we do
not understand. We can only lose, again.

1. That's some serious nonsense.

Let me know when we invade Syria and spend 10 years or so with troops on the ground.

3. Must be tough being the decider of whom is worse: Assad or extremists aligned with al-Qaeda.

And all along I had though it were gospel that al-Qaeda is a ubiquitous evil incarnate so great as to require a several hundred billion dollar annual expenditure just to thwart. Now I'm confused, so which is it?
