Apparently these ‘rebels’ from wherever they come from don’t mind killing Syrians so I wonder how much more they would enjoy killing Americans? Any involvement with these rebels appears foolish.

The best policy is letting the people of Syria decide what they want. If they still want their current president, then so be it, even though that sounds like a stupid choice!

Let the oil-rich Arabs decide what to do about Syria. Any other outside intervention could easily and accidentally produce a biological and chemical horror show around the region — including Israel –that will destroy US and European credibility forever, wreck global economies, and leave radical Islam supporters in charge of wrecked oil fields and in charge of Turkey.
The only people to benefit will be the Kurds who will suddenly inherit a Kurdistan geographically much larger than event the most optimistic among them ever dreamed could emerge (The beginning of a Kurdish Ottoman Empire).

I hope I live to see the day that foreign countries fund and supply arms to ‘revolutionaries’ within the usa. Now THAT would be some irony, eh?!? I’m pretty sure the american government would suddenly be very, very against foreign countries meddling in domestic affairs.
