Make no mistake … These past couple months my defense of Assad/Syria has been rooted ONLY in the fact that there has NOT been concrete evidence that the chemical weapons attack(s) on Syrian civilians was carried out by the Syrian regime. Remember, those itching to bomb the hell out of Assad for the questionable chemical weapons attack are pretty much the same who, over 12 years later, still insist “Bush lied” about WMD in Iraq. I’m sorry, but there was/is far more (ignored) evidence of that than there is Assad gassed his own people.
Yes, Assad is what he is, and mostly that is the butt-buddy of Iran. It has been known for the last couple years Iran has been supporting/supplying Assad/Syria with weapons and manpower…
“The camel has become pregnant = We have moved into Syria and our numbers are swelling…daily!”
What is currently going on in Syria is a civil war, and looks increasingly like a war based on religion, and between rival Islamic/Muslim sects.
However, that said, the sudden zeal the Obama administration has had to see a regime change in Syria, after more than one Obama administration cabinet member and/or fellow democrat(s) over the last several years have praised Assad and even broke bread with him … some of this during the time of the Bush administration’s own strictness with the man. It is doubtless Obama is pushing out any/all sitting dictators the USA/world has had contained for decades. In Obama’s case, in favor of fundamentally Islamic governments replacing them under the misnomer of “democracy”. And we must ask if this is possibly a proxy war against Iran. If so, going about it this way will fail.
Stay the Hell out of Syria.
