I remember when the US recognized Bin Laden and his people and the Taliban as the true rulers of Afghanistan.

Screw you Iran and any of your comments. The decisions have been made and you must respect the fact that Assad is a cold blooded killer of his own people and since you are arming Assad you will pay the price as well. I cannot wait to see the day that Syria is liberated! Iran go to Hell!!

americanguy – Perhaps you are “misremembering”?

That’s politic-speak for LYING.

In al-Zawahiri’s book, as with a quote from bin-Laden himself, the US had no “mentionable role”.

To quote CNN journalist Peter Bergen, based on his interviews with bin-Laden: “The story about bin Laden and the CIA — that the CIA funded bin Laden or trained bin Laden — is simply a folk myth. There’s no evidence of this. In fact, there are very few things that bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and the U.S. government agree on. They all agree that they didn’t have a relationship in the 1980s. And they wouldn’t have needed to. Bin Laden had his own money, he was anti-American and he was operating secretly and independently. The real story here is the CIA did not understand who Osama was until 1996, when they set up a unit to really start tracking him.”

So, americanguy, where to you find this bs? Or do you just make it up as you go along?

The U.S must stay out of direct intervention in this one!, Their are plenty of countries directly involved that can and should lead the way. Support but from a distance.

Let the new Syrian opposition group prove themselves first….good move USA.

I’m all for Syrian rebels getting what they need to take down the bloody butcher Bashar Assad. Assad is just a criminal thug, using his regime to cleanse Syria of every single person, man, woman, child, and infant…that he thinks opposes him.

It’s mass murder on a huge scale all across Syria.

Let’s hope the rebels get what they need soon to end this !

Russia, China, Iran and Hezbollah….be damned!
