Not enough though! actually I expect the west are the ones being set up so the “moderate” regime can be replaced by one more extreme and hard core islamic, like in Lybia
And in 1917 the Turks weren’t the Turks, they were still the Ottomans. And after the Armenian genocide they deserved whatever got thrown at them.
Oh, and as for the rest:
Assad is a Ba’athist, just like his old dead pal Saddam. Guess who got the WMDs when some traitor (D) Senator tipped him off we were coming for him last time? Hell, we saw the convoy of trucks on TV from the satellites. So he DOES have WMD. Lots. All those “no evidence” chem and bio weapons that “don’t exist”.
Ho ho ho, wouldn’t it be just too fuckin funny if he gassed the shit out of everyone, and when the blue helmets went in a couple weeks later, saw Made In Iraq on all the empty binary canisters? That would be the biggest “told ya so” ever. I’d laugh my ass off.
And like the “fiscal cliff”, I just don’t effin’ care if we go over. “Told ya so” ought to be the GOP response, along with a big “fuck you, now starve”. The Syrian WMD thing gets the same reaction out of me; a) I couldn’t give half a turd less if he gassed a hundred million of the muzzie fucks, the more the merrier. Make it >200; with 300 you get egg roll. b) O-useless and sHrillary aren’t going to do a damn thing if he does. Nada. If Asswad is halfway smart, he’ll detonate his stuff when the wind is blowing away from Israel, because they WILL come and frack his ass green if a single Jew gets gassed.
As long as the USA don’t spend a cent with any “aid” afterwards, I’m fine with it. Stay the hell out, let them fight till one side is completely dead, then and only then smack the shit out of the winner, and then extend a very thin olive branch to whoever is left at that point. Hell, make them pay us tribute for the mere benefit of us not nuking them. Today. And then tomorrow. And tomorrow.
Fuck ‘em all, they’re the worst pestilential leeches on humanity in the world. If they don’t kill themselves fast enough, sneak some Sarin in to the rebels.
Agree with sentiments Drew. Thing is, while Assad does not deny having chemical weapons, the folks who dearly want to get involved, Obama, Paris, London etc., are itching to “do something” to save the “civilians.” What crap. It’s all the BS they spew as all and sundry wring hands and see who will bray the loudest as defenders of humanity.
Drew, they really do think we are all stupid and blind to their plans. If NATO gets involved as they have threatened to, you know darn well all of the above will be pouring money into the venture if not in troops, which seems unlikely, but in supplies. $$$$$$£££££
Two sources of information you can never trust or believe again, The Government, and the News Media. 100% lies 100% of the time.
Military intervention in response to a threat of WMD. Sound familiar?
Whether or not the WMDs exist doesn’t matter. It’s just a pretext.
I’m with “Fuck ‘em all” Drew and “Believe no one” grayjohn.
Don’t stick a thermometer in the middle east because its gonna BLOW any second,teehee teehee.
Sorry I’m a little late to the party, but it’s even worse than what you’ve noted.
The Syrian Rebels are already Islamist affiliated and are making their own WMD. Either that or they have already captured a portion of Assads war gasses. Here’s a link to an article and video from Breitbart about it. Oh, incidentally, the video was produced by the rebels as a warning to Assad.
Just for a cherry on top, some rebel groups have been targeting Syrian Christians for months with little note by the MSM.
Who are we supporting in that mess and why? What do we expect to get out of it? Has our State Department gone completely insane? Why do they want to help promote an Islamic Caliphate to rule over the entire Mid East?
Assad is a murdering s.o.b. but at least he’s not engaged in declaring Jihad against the world.
Just in case you thought that wasn’t too bad…
