The world knows Bashar Assad is the devil incarnate. This evil bastard has joined the infamous ranks of Adolph Hitler and Saddam Husein, who also used chemical attacks to murder their own people. The images of the victims, which included hundreds of children, are as disturbing as anything one will ever see in his or her lifetime. Despite the increasingly obvious fact that these atrocities actually did actually occur-I believe we should sit this one out.
We just have all, but ended, the long time “occupation” of Iraq and Afghanistan. Billions of dollars wasted fighting for the right to do what? Were we trying to unsuccessfully spread our brand of mostly conservative influenced insanity AKA “Democracy? These folks in the Middle East can’t settle issues that have plagued their existence for centuries, but somehow, we believe that we can lead them in a “right” direction down a path they don’t want to travel in the first place. Al-Qaeda, although significantly set back by Barack’s incessant drone destruction-remains a concern throughout the world. We got Osama Bin Laden, but the sociopathic son-of-a-bitch Ayman al-Zawahiri, who was actually as instrumental, if not more than Bin Laden for implementing the tragedy of 9/11 remains free and in charge. Count the total amount of lives lost since 9/11. Don’t just count our brave service men and women, but count the thousands of brown skinned babies, women, and men, who were blown to bits for simply being in harms way. We have enough issues here at home.
The attack on Syria appears imminent. Like the war in Iraq, I’m not in support of this despite the breaking news and video that apparently prove what an animal Bashar Assad really is. We need to clean-up our own streets before we begin sweeping through the streets of other nations that don’t follow our brand of “Democracy.” I pray the president knows what he is doing.
I wish we had something like Gatorade for our continued thirst for oil from the Middle East. It’s not about terrorists, it has nothing to do with Israel-In the end, it’s not really about Assad. It’s about fracking/fucking control of those oil fields!! “And up through the ground came a bubblin crude.Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.” ~Daryl(Lyrics borrowed from the theme for “The Beverly Hillbillies”)
