I listened to McCain on FNS this Sunday. He is obsessed with la gloire et le grandeur of the US. He speaks of American leadership as if he is expressing a "sacred truth."
Well, we don't the money to spare. The country does not want war in Syria and Iran. McCain seems to want these wars in order to show the world who is boss. Maybe boxing is not a good thing in the curriculum of USNA.
In Syria, it remains true that the array of opposition groups includes a lot of people who are inherently anti- Western and anti-US.
The information we receive concerning events in Syria comes from the rebels or through newsmen sympathetic to the rebels and who are informed by the rebels. There is no independent confirmation at all. None.
People died in Hula. The event there reminds me of Sabra and Shatila. IMO this massacre was a sectarian genocide perpetrated by Alawi militias.
If that is true should we arm and train the rebels and provide them air support? And what of the Turks? What of them?
We may be forced into war against Iran. The Iranians seem to be trying to "outplay" us. This is a foolish thing to do. Many have made the same mistake in the past. Syria is not like that. We are being pushed by propaganda towards intervention in Syria. pl
