  • Syria: What should the US do?

    I'd like to get opinions now, because I'm pretty sure that Obama will be criticized for any course of action. So, let's hear your opinion now....

     

    [  ] Absolutely nothing, not our problem

    [  ] Humanitarian aid only

    [  ] Lawyers, guns, money for the rebs, no boots on the ground

    [  ] Full support to the rebs from the US military, oust that bastard Assad

      Do yu honestly think Israel could finish anything it starts in the ME without the help of the US?

       

      They better stick to repression of the palestinians, they arent ready for prime time.

      I think you need to come down to the South and lead the movement.

      Provide a ****************load of humanitarian aid to any neighboring country that is taking in refugees.

      Then mind our own ****************ing business.

      If the Arab League wants to intervene, then we can kick in a little cash.

         Let them fight it out.

         Why help them when they'll hate us anyway?

        I tend to agree BA, at least give the refugees a fighting chance.

          No matter what the America does, 

          it will kill innocent people,

          that's what America does since 1495.

              Nothing. Honestly, why should we? Just so that a bunch of people who don't like us to start with have another reason to hate us?

              Here are my choices, In order of preference:

              [ 1 ] Absolutely nothing, not our problem

              [ 2 ] Humanitarian aid only

              [ 3 ] Lawyers, guns, money for the rebs, no boots on the ground

              [ Hell No! ] Full support to the rebs from the US military, oust that bastard Assad

               

              It would be nice if just once this country came to its senses and let individual countries solve their own internal problems. I admit, Bassar al-Assad is a bad man who should be deposed, but it is not up to U.S. to force the change. Only the Syrians can decide their own fate. It would be a disaster if the Untied Skates tried to "nation-build" again. 

              If you don't agree, look at what we did in:

              Iran -- Ousted the democratically elected government of Prime MinisterMohammad Mosaddegh in favour of the Shah because Mohammad Reza Pahlavi was more favourable to U.S. and British oil interests.

              Viet Nam -- Sided with the Ngo Dinh Diem government over Ho Chi Minh because Diem was "not communitst." He was, however, a ruthless and cruel dictateor who was ousted by his own people in 1963. After that, Lyndon Johnson brewed up "The Tonkin Gulf Incident" as an excuse to fight the North Vietnamese. 

              Cuba -- Sided with the Batista regime over Castro because Batista was "not a communist." This ignored what sort of dictator Batista was. Things got worse from there. 

              Nicaragua, El Salvadore, Panama, et al -- Teddy Roosevelt and his friends "helped create" those countries and a number of other "banana republics" at the behest of American business interests. Later, Ronald Reagan supported the "Contras" because they were "not communist." This ignored the death squads both sides used to rule the population with fear. 

              Afghanistan -- Reagan funded the Mujahideen in their fight against the Soviet invasion because they were "not communist." This encouraged a number of people, including a young Usama bin Laden. 

              Afghanistan (again) -- Bush and company overthrew the Taliban government as part of a campaign to wipe out Al Qaeda. The current government is not all that strong and may fail, once the Untied Skates pulls out. 

              Iraq -- The Untied Skates, led by Ronald Reagan, supported Iraq in their war with Iran because Saddam Husseine was "not an Islamic Fundamentalist." Or a "communist." That put Husseine, a devotee of Joseph Stalin, in power, where he ruled with an iron fist. This included turning chemical weapons and other arms he got from the Untied Skates against his own people in order to hold on to power.

              Iraq (again) -- Husseine invaded Kuwait, trying to annex the place. He claimed it was "the lost Iraqi province," but mostly he wanted the oil. George H.W. Bush came to the aid of his Kuwaiti friends to kick Husseine out of that country. Saddam stopped being our "friend" and became an anathema. 

              Iraq (again, some more) -- GHW Bush's dumb kid, George W. Bush, used the 9-11 attacks and claims of "weapons of mass destruction" as an excuse to conduct a vendetta war against Saddam Husseine and Iraq for his own personal reasons. What was supposed to be a quick, simple, drive-him-from-office invasion turned into a mess. First, the Untied Skates did nothing to keep the peace or enforce the laws. Then it took months for the "Iraqi Reconstruction Commission -- staffed mostly by Bush cronies" to even start thinking of a plan to rebuild the nation. Being political appointees, they botched the job. 

              Libya -- The French wanted to get rid of Muamar Khadaffi in order to get better oil prices, so they started a war in the country. The Untied Skates provided "assistance" in the form of air strikes and weapons for the rebels in the civil war. Once again, nobody thougt to ask who those guys were. One of the results was the attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazzi. 

              Syria -- Do we really have to do all that stuff again???? How about just once we sit this one out and let the Syrians solve their own problems. Or at least let other countries carry the load. Given the Untied Skates' dismal record in nation-building, non-involvement would be our best choice.

That's why the anti-Israeli Arabs have taken to terrorism rather than straight-up warfare.

                  So, basically, almost everybody suggests we do nothing at all, it's a civil matter. A small group is in favor of humanitarian aid, but nobody suggests US military intervention. Except 1 vote to "unleash Israel" (whatever that means), and one vote for an old fashioned duel. 

                   

                  Good to know...

                   

                  Of course, I'm pretty sure we'll still see some rw troll threads later saying something like, "Protestors die, Obama plays golf"
