Appalling that we haven’t learned from the past 12 years that we cannot help Muslim countries. Syria does gas their children. They do torture and mutilate and behead their children. This is who they are. We will never change who they are. We’ve let them stockpile weapons that can harm Israel, the only Democracy in the Middle East. Really, just how dedicated are we to defending democracy around the world? The latest use of chemical weapons were released in Damascus, Syria. Look how close Damascus is to Israel.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) interviewed with Sean Hannity yesterday.
In short, he said we shouldn’t be arming any groups affiliated with Al Qaeda but we also shouldn’t be just lobbing a few missiles at Assad just to show our disapproval of the use of chemical weapons. Everything we do over there, he says, should be in our national interest and that means not letting chemical weapons fall in the hands of Hezzbollah, Al Qaeada, and other terrorist groups.

Have we learned that what is called ‘democracy’ is often a ruse to continue U.S. aid and keep human rights watchers at bay – a way for dictators to acheive credibility. When will we learn there is no democracy under the Koran?
Just as with Iran, the ball should have never started rolling. We’ve done nothing but run guns and perhaps other weapons into Syria from Libya and haven’t a clue whose arsenal some 400 Surface-to-Air missiles are now hidden.
As of July 2013 it is estimated that up to 106,425 have died. Children have died, been arrested and some tortured. Unless there is precise and effective action to rid Syria of weapons that can harm the U.S. and our interests, I want the U.S. to play no part in going to the aid of yet another bunch of “rebels.”

China and Russia are warning us not to intervene after proof of Assad gassing his own people. I doubt Russia needs a ‘red line,’ or gives a damn about ours, or gives a damn about Barack Obama’s careless and hobbling ways – it’s all encouragement to both of these countries.
I’ve long thought Russia played a part in moving Saddam Hussein’s WMD from Iraq to Syria. We’ve been stupid for a very long time. Barack Obama has been cowed for a very long time.
We cannot free these people. They must leave Islam and these countries behind. Move on people. The U.S. cannot cure your ills. You are doomed to the brutality of your own.
