I'm happy it's the Russians doing it and not the US.

This is kind of what I was thinking. We may not have any direct interests in Syria but if we back off and just let Russia take the reigns that lets Russia spread its influence. And the more Russia spreads its influence the worse it is for us because obviously that Russian influence won't be pro-American wherever it goes. And the less American influence there is the harder it is for us to get the things we want done done.

I believe almost everything this guy says in the video. His ultimatum about revealing a secret motive behind the chemical weapons attack in Syria is interesting. Yet, I believe he is disingenuous about moderates being able to work with extremist in a post Assad Syria. They (the moderates) are no match for the extremist in Syria.

The 5 day war?

The US would comprehensively crush the Russian military in Syria in a serious confrontation, and it would not be remotely close


I never said Russian troops vs American troops. I'm talking their backing Syria's Gov't and providing weapons that could be used against U.S. troops if or when Obama decides to put some on the ground in Syria. A better armed home grown Syrian with better technology and better arms from Russia, than what they have now, will make Syria a quagmire. The U.S., imo, is on too many fronts as it is, militarily. This is a fight we shouldn't be involved in.

re: Russian Warships headed to Syria

My view of the situation has not changed, but my personal opinions are conflicted. I don't know if that makes sense?

The idea, shared by many on this board, that the rebels are all AQ affiliated ignores facts. There are many factions including Kurds. There will be a power vacuum when Assad falls and there is the risk of an AQ affiliated govt but that's the case unfortunately in almost every Islamic country. It's easy and simplistic to say we should stay out of it but that's what we did once the Russians left Afghanistan and the Taliban filled the power vacuum.

There's also the fact that Assad, Hezbollah and Iran are allied. The fall of Assad lessens the influence of Hezbollah and Iran in the region. And an extended fight costs Hezbollah and Iran bc they are supporting them with arms and men. Hezbollah has already lost a lot of stature in the region bc they went from the biggest opponent of Israel to the biggest supporter of the hated Assad.

So you and I agree on these points as you've said. But I'm still in the camp of sending small arms and humanitarian aid. Iran's intervention in Iraq costs us blood and treasure. I'd like a little payback.

And pretty much all of them are killing and running off Christians, and wish to install a more repressive Islamic Gov't than what is already there. The U.S. being involved will not make anything any better humanitarian wise.

Definitely an Obama groupie. Retribution matters more than common sense policy and the right thing to do for the country.

A more repressive govt than Assad? Doubtful. Unless we abandon the more moderate factions then it's probable. Assad will fall. We're better off backing the winner.

Correction. A McCain groupie. Obama has opposed support until now.
Thanks to toppling Saddam, we now have an Iran friendly govt in Iraq and an Iran with greater influence... Which helps Hezbollah which hurts Israel and peace in the region. Who supplies Hezbollah with the rockets the fire into Israel? Draining and weakening the Hezbollah-Assad-Iran alliance is a good thing.

re: Russian Warships headed to Syria
From the comments:

quote:

MEMRI TV set up by an EX MOSSAD officer, and used as an Israeli anti Islam PR channel! Divide and rule! "By deception thou makes war" MOSSAD! "After one month we will reveal the truth about chemical weapons use, we were told to do it to blame ASSAD!!"


More like, Memri TV is itself a propaganda arm of Israeli interests.

Which makes me wonder: is this whole thread a fantasy founded on Israeli propaganda?
