Powerful Republican Representatives and Senators are buying another excursion to a place we should not allow our nation to be embroiled. To begin, we are fighting two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan where Al Qaeda is as strong, if not stronger than before we crashed their party in both countries. Additionally, as it always seems, we have lost both of those conflicts because we are unable to understand there is no winning unless we are willing to inflict collateral damage as part of the price paid to win the war when the terrorists seek refuge among families. Families which may or may not sympathetic to Al Qaeda or the Taliban, and may despise the “liberator.”
We (the United States) supported the Muslim Brotherhood when Mubarak was deposed in Egypt, only to learn the new ruler voted in by popular vote was as bad if not worse than the previous. The Egyptian military and millions of ordinary citizens forced the duly elected Morsi out of his post and into incarceration. I believe we will find he was removed for valid reasons and Egypt will be the better for his absence.
There are armies and governments fully able to invest in freeing their neighbors and fellow Muslims. And, we should
allow require them to do so before we spend any more citizens and money to play in another sandbox. Whatever the reason or justification given, going into or over Syria is tantamount to aiding Al Qaeda and other Muslim fanatics.
We still need answers about what transpired, and the culpable ones for our shameful losses of people and standing in Libya.
Run, don’t walk, our butts out of any intent to become involved in or above Syria.
