    Syria will not all of the sudden become a peace loving democracy if we oust Assad. We have nothing to gain by doing so and we will just get more entrenched in the mess.
    Oh c'mon, Scott...you should know that the Russians already have a hand picked successor. We're probably just getting around to it...you're looking for a pixie dust coating on this thing, and that's not the point. A "chess move" had to be made. There's a book I recommend you read "Six Days of War" by Michael B. Oren. It'll give you an insight to Russian/US diplomacy during proxy wars. Also read "The Cold War" by John Lewis Gaddis,,,and excellent read with the Soviet point of view from archives released by Yeltsin.

    It's a move, Scott. Who the heck expects "Peace loving democracy"? Point out any Arab country over there that is. I certainly think the days of "cosmopolitan" Tehran, Beiruit or Cairo are gone.

    You're not suggesting that Assad be ignored as he lobs this shit all over the place? Because there's "nothing we can do"? WTF?

    It's a move, Scott.
    Hopefully it stays that way. If this is the beginning of a "regime change" though, it will be another war, similar to, but smaller than Iraq, and probably with similar results.

    I hope that it's the only move made on our part as far as a regime change.

    You're not suggesting that Assad be ignored as he lobs this shit all over the place?

    Because there's "nothing we can do"?
    I didn't say there was nothing we can do, I said the alternative is worse. There is plenty that we can do including %@#$ up things worse like we did in Iraq and Libya.

    What seems to be ignored is that the town that was targeted was a terrorists controlled city. On Wednesday, ISIS fighters slaughtered villagers with "sharp objects" and threw them in a blood filled mass grave. ISIS just released a kill lists of 8786 targets in the UK and USA:

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/04...arp-tools.html

    These are the groups fighting Assad. The alternative is not better. Assad is a brutal dictator, but I'd rather have Assad in charge of Syria than ISIS.

    As far as what we can do, how about stop arming all of these terrorists groups and dictatorships? Very little arms are manufactured in the Middle East. Russia and the US are the ones arming both sides of the conflict.

    There's a book I recommend you read
    I will read those books, but I have some suggested reading for you as well. If Assad is ousted, come back and read my posts on this thread four or five years after the regime change, also noting that I successfully predicted the outcome of the Iraq War as well.

    I actually want to be wrong on this, just as I wanted to be wrong on Iraq, but time will tell.
    Utah is a very special and unique place. There is no where else like it on earth. Please take care of it and keep the remaining wild areas in pristine condition. The world will be a better place if you do.

    Si vis pacem, para bellum

    That is a classic Latin adage which translates to "If you want peace, prepare for war".

    Which is also where the popular 9mm, more properly known as the '9mm Parabellum' got it's name.

    We're not far removed from scavenging carcasses. It's still a world where the biggest dick wins, like it or not.

Surprisingly, very little political talk came up but when it did, they are all highly attuned to the Russian thing. I mean focused on it alone, like it's all they've got.

    I wish I would have been able to whip this comic out of my pocket. I would have laughed so hard!!!
