[QUOTE=c.captain;118647]This is just great. Back 10 years ago when there was a nation in the Middle East which WAS NOT A THREAT to regional stability, everybody and their brother was beating drums saying “Let’s go kill that EMMEFFER Saddam” and spent almost $1 trillion dollars we didn’t have then but now in 2013 when a civil war is raging in the midst of the region with the possibility of an extremist Islamic takeover of Syria or a bloodbath of civilians everyone is saying “Not our problem and let them deal with it”. Since stability of the Middle East effects the economies of the rest of the planet, I would say that now is the time to use our mega military to make damned ass sure that we get a government in Syria which will be friendly to the US, Europe, Turkey, the Arab league and Israel. The last thing we need is a junta in power there which is butt buddies with Iran…Assad is a criminal who cannot stay in power now so there will be new leaders in Syria and I say we DAMNED WELL BETTER BE SURE THEY ARE THE LEADERS WE WANT THERE and not terrorists.
I also say that we need to make DAMNED ASS SURE that Vladimir Putin is knocked back a peg or two. That EMMEFFER is on a mega powertrip and something has got to be done to make sure he doesn’t get anymore! He is rapidly succeeding in bringing back the Cold War and he is using Syria and that little pipsqueak Snowden against us at every step![/QUOTE]
Yes making the changes would be good, but since we haven’t done it successfully in a region that hates us, it doesn’t look like we can change Syria. Hell even somalia beat us. Nuke the whole damn works, go all in and be done with it. No more money left to fight the loosing fights. We have paid a huge price for nothing so far, at least we can get peace if there are no haters left to hate. This elimination view is the same view as the enemy. We won’t do anything like this until they hit us in our homeland with a nuke, you can be sure that is their plan.
