Syria: Obama’s Iraq and Probably Worse


Without proof of which side of the Syrian conflict may or may not have launched chemical weapons, the United States is ready to launch Cruise Missiles against the Assad regime.  The vast majority of American citizens do not want our country to become involved in the battle between the forces of the government and the rebels, who are supported by al-Qaeda.  Our President, who is dominated by the Republican Party will undoubtedly take action against the government of Syria without proof.  This will be Obama’s Iraq, and may possibly create worse and more serious results.

Secretary of State John Kerry made a speech which declared the Assad regime responsible for chemical weapons attacks.  But the fact is, he has no evidence.

This is a situation that the United States cannot win.  Assad is aligned with Russia and Iran.  The rebel forces are Islamic extremists aligned with al-Qaeda.  Why is the United States becoming involved in this struggle?

There is no advantage for the U.S. intervening in an area of the world we do not understand.  We can only lose, again.

What is at risk is global confrontation.  And America cannot afford it.  We do not have the resources or allies to challenge the world.  And, once again, we do not have the facts.

Involvement in another Islamic country could cost the United States more danger than all past failed involvements combined.  If we attack another Islamic regime, life for Americans could become increasingly treacherous.  Terrorism could increase, and it would be a direct reaction to American imperialism.

To place the decision of the Obama administration to continue the pattern of American involvement in waging war is ludicrous and possibly perilous.

America has proven it cannot exist unless it is at war.  This is a pattern that must cease to exist.  The results of every American war after WWII is disaster.  We lose lives and bankrupt our country.  There has never been a positive outcome.

Syria could become the worst of all.

    Mobilize an impenetrable land force comprised of like minded countries and equipment and move inside Syria and capture the entire personnel gas storage area destroying or making it inert so it cannot ever be a threat again.
    Then leave and let the idiots kill each other again.

    If the US cannot internally decide a war should result as a consequence of the Syrian attack, then the President of the US has no authority to act. His actions are despotic. An impeachment process is difficult and “messy”, but apparently necessary.

    War is an addiction for Church and State.
    Human beings are addicted to substances, such a nicotine.
    There are plenty of good reasons to stop smoking.
    If you want to stop, get “Stop Smoking and Lose Weight: A Buddhadharmically Enhanced Alchemical Transmutation Process,” by Tharpa Lodro:

    And just do it.
