I guess I should post something on Syria. It seems that President Obama has boxed himself in pretty well. If he attacks Syria and doesn’t remove Assad it looks like he’s just attacked because he drew a red line he never thought he’d actually have to act upon. A rocket or two that accomplish nothing won’t improve the status much. If he removes Assad and the rebels take Syria and install an Al-Qaeda regime well that will most likely cause us even more trouble then Assad himself.
Support from other countries for intervention seems to be waning. So, does he go it alone? You know, doing what he formally stated was not constitutional? Not that the Constitution slows this President down much.
In all fairness it’s a no win situation now. He’ll look weak if he does nothing. Which is what I support. But that’s why off the cuff statements must be kept to a minimum.
Perhaps we should just support the rebels for a while then Assad for a while and keep this war going on until the desire for peace reaches every man, women and child. Then perhaps a small spot of order will emerge.
