you mean we finally learned a lesson, from supplying the muj fighters in afganistan back when..yeaaa for us…maybe we should just make it a Syrian no fly zone, period….since the Syrian govt is the only one to have fixed wing aircraft, this should be easy to monitor if decided…..also, including helos in the no fly equation..we don’t want to make the same mistake, of the first Iraqi war allover again….humanitarian missions of food and medical supplies, can be carried out by UN fly drops, protected by UN planes, that will fire on any side that shoots at them , while performing these duties…

And capable of taking down drones no doubt; that’s probably the ‘main’ concern.

Why are we even screwing around over there? Good job Obama – give that man another peace prize! They have enough problems Obama, without you using them in your various proxy/profit warfare.

Who supplies the Saudis with the weapons; too supply the rebels with death to God’s people? Is Allah the face of death? No.

The US? France? Do these governments outfit death?

Allied terrorist, fight for Peace and Life Eternal; Not death.

As above, so below.

Peace be with you All.

I hope this is true although it’s probably too late.
