U.S. President Barack Obama sat back and watched the events unfold as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad unleashed the most heinous of atrocities against his own people. Yet, rather than be decisive when he needed to be, Barack Obama was anything but. So why now Mister President?
It serves no useful purpose as it offers no logical end game.
What people also don't realize is that if the United States were to engage the Assad Regime he would be fighting right along side Al-Qaeda. And that is something that should absolutely not sit right among Americans who watched in horror when they unleashed death and destruction upon them on 9 / 11. Have you forgotten that Mister President?
So far as I am concerned the U.S. Should Stay Out of Syria as well as anywhere else in the Middle East unless America comes under direct attack. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wants us to believe that intervention in Syria is somehow a security issue for us and I say really? Are you off your nut Mister Kerry? I don't see Syria attacking the United States anytime soon because they are incapable of that!
This illusion of Weapons of Mass Destruction was sold on us once before and when the smoke cleared in Iraq we found nothing. N-O-T-H-I-N-G! Talk about giving the American People a bum steer - but that is exactly what they did. But let's see what happened in the aftermath; Saddam Hussein was hanged and the country now enjoys a Secular Civil War the moment U.S. Forces were withdrawn.
American Soldiers died for nothing! And that is a tragedy that should never be repeated again especially when everyone in the world knew who the real target should have been back then - Afghanistan. Had the United States done the right thing we wouldn't have an Afghan President laughing all the way to the bank. And don't kid yourselves that is exactly what Hamid Karzai has done by playing the fence with friend and foe. The U.S. could have solved the Pakistani Problem as well by wiping out the lawless region of Waziristan where Islamist Extremists had set up shop with impunity. I am sure Pervez Musharraf would have most pleased regardless of what he said publicly.
Exactly why the United States continue to blunder in its foreign policy and prosecution of its real enemies is beyond comprehension, but it is like a fricking revolving door with these so-called policy wonks who just can't get it right. And I am beginning to wonder if the real agenda here is to put us all into a World War?
It is time the U.S. Government stop acting as mother to the world; her version of democracy simply may not be the same as another view. As for Syria, well our hearts should bleed for the innocent loss of life. It is incomprehensible. But this must play out among the people of the region as it appears sides have already been chosen regarding Assad.
Besides U.S. intervention now is too little too late.
