I do not question that Assad needs to go away. His regime is pure, well, Muslim. So, let’s look at what we (the world) get if we help the rebels get into power. First, we get a, well, Muslim regime; perhaps a different sect, but Muslim nonetheless. Remember, Islam is not strictly a religion, it is a religion, a governmental philosophy, a dictate on how you live, work, and punish transgressors. The difference between the Assad regime and any other Muslim regime is who is calling the shots and who their allies are.
Assad is allied with Iran and Iraq. The other guys are (maybe) allied with Saudi Arabia. I’m having a problem seeing the difference here. Taking a look at Saudi Arabia, what makes them the good guys? Saudi Christians are beheaded and foreign Christians are flogged and deported. Women are not even considered in the sphere of human existence and are only chattel.
On the other hand, there is a major Muslim Brotherhood presence in Syria. I don’t know of anyone who would look at these warm fuzzy people as friends.
I’m having a problem seeing the difference here (but I repeat myself). For the US to get involved in this situation is a serious lose-lose proposition. OK, so we put a new Muslim regime in power, where is the guarantee they will be our friends? Seems like we had the same crocodile tears from a despot in Cuba in 1959.
Now to get slightly off topic, people say that we should wait for the UN to finish their investigation into the gassing events. Well, these people have the credibility of that same crocodile from 1959. If the “O” thinks he will get any corroboration at the UN he is still smoking that stuff he wants to legalize. I would venture a guess that over 70% of the UN wants to blame us for every ill in the world and the Syria situation will be no different.
Do I have a solution for the Syria situation, no I don’t and neither does any other sane person. We look at Muslim extremist and lament how they want to kill non-Muslims but look at who they target the most, other Muslims. Muslim on Muslim attacks far outnumber Muslim on non-Muslim attacks. That is the way it has always been and always will be. People who know me know that I have an unfailing faith in the Word of God. In Genesis 16:11 – 12 it is recorded, “The angle of the Lord said to her (Hagar) ‘Behold, you are with child, and you will bear a son; and you shall call his name Ishmael, because the Lord has given heed to your affliction. He will be a wild donkey of a man, his hand will be against everyone, and everyone’s hand will be against him; and he will live to the east of all his brothers.’” Ishmael is the father of the Arabs and hence Muslims. Nothing has changed in the last 4000 years. The only change was that Mohammed (if he really existed) merely gave focus to their hatred. That focus was to hate everyone. They live for hate. It is difficult to know who they hate more, Muslims of a different sect, Jews, Christians, Hindus, or whoever happens to be handy.
No, there is no reasonable solution to the Syria situation and the sooner the “O” realizes that and shuts his mouth the better. He is just becoming more of an embarrassment than Joe Biden.
As always, questions and discussion are always welcome.
