The Saudis did so much to help this civil war ignite and are now doing so much to torment sectarian war. They have poured millions into Muslim Salafi uprisings all over the world but have the audacity to complain we are not helping them enough. What we have here is the fox complaining about the farmer not helping the chickens enough. Well, I can understand that as the farmer has foolishly empowered the fox for so very long. But is is quite audacious to start a civil war and then complain that others are not doing their share to help the refugees.

When the U.S. gets involved in military intervention anywhere in the Middle, the conservative Sunni Muslims, including Osama Bin Laden, complained that the infidels of the west do not belong there.

Former Saudi intelligence chief Prince Turki bin Faisal should tell us when he, and his fellow Saudis plan to intervene in Syria before telling us what we should be doing. When will the Middle East potentates assume responsibility for the total lack of tolerance prevalent in the Middle East?

How about the Saudis send aid instead of us. I am so sick and tired of the US getting involved in everyone else’s war.

Note to the Turki: It’s your religious and misguided hatred for your fellow man that is driving the sectarian divisions in the ME. The majority of Americans are not interested in helping you propagate this foolishness. I agree with desertlover (above).

Assad on one side and AQ infiltrated rebels on the other side. This is a dog with fleas. There will be no winners in this conflict. Why in the world should the U.S. waste either blood or treasure on this catastrophe?

Would have nothing to do with the fact that we suspended sending arms to the Syrian rebels that are clearly anti American. We just sold the Saudi Kingdom 15,000 missiles the other day for almost a billion. Where do you think those are going to go? *facepalm* The Saudis are not to be trusted for a moment. Honestly, this is ludicrous.

The sniveling little turd should be grateful Britain and America invented Saudi Arabia from the detritus of the Ottoman Empire and have kept his family in power for just over 80 years.

President Obama is the only man in the world with the power to send robots to remove the dictators who murder in the world .. it is right that he should have done this in Damascus .. in my opinion ..

for me the opinion of men who never served in the military is not credible .. they never thought it important to help the military ..

they think that this country is theirs without doing anything ..

According to RT “…Putin suggested to Bandar Bush [aka Bandar bin Sultan, Saudi Arabia’s Director of National Intelligence] to abandon “sectarian instigations and supporting terrorism, because it is a double edged sword that will rebound inside Saudi Arabia and gather momentum in a manner that you will not be able to control.”” http://rt.com/op-edge/syria-putin-bandar-saudi-263/
