Denver, when you're proven wrong as you often are, you resort to lies and attempting to turn the conversation and now you want to talk about respect. In the year or so I've been posting on here, I've seen none from you so I'm curious, why should I listen to you discuss a topic that you know nothing about?

As for Hilldog, I have enough respect for her to know that she was vastly more qualified to be President than the community organizer the dumb a** democrats elected.

I also know that in the past, she has been her own worst enemy. That will continue in the future as she will not be the female to break the glass ceiling. Not after 8 years of terrible leadership and general incompetence of the current Democratic administration. She will be "punished" in the same way John McCain, by far the most qualified candidate in 2008 was.

Now what were you saying about respect D-Dog?

I'm sorry denver but I'm not sure how your failure to heed your fathers advice on a daily basis has anything to do with Syria or the conversation at hand. Is this another ploy because once again, your lost and you feel you have to post something?

"I was told by someone who was real close to me, that son, if you what people to respect you, you first have to show respect."

I agree. Part of that doesn't include calling someone who is not your son, son. You get the respect you deserve there little buddy.

"Should we therefore support Assad & his government?"

Because none of the players are stable, we should stay out of their uprising. We have no right to pick a winner.

I suspect Denver that you know hilldog is Hillary Rodham Clinton.

AaronS posted, "If there is a favorable direction in Syria it is likely with the stability provided by Asaad."

A difficult answer, yet perhaps true. However, many doubt that Assad's position is stable (or even that Assad himself is stable). Should we therefore support Assad & his government? If N&S poses that as a poll question, I suspect there will be a few "Yes" votes (although most will vote for "support no one").

President Bush didn't go it alone as 70% of Democrats including Hilldog, Kerry, Edwards, Jay and later Obama through his votes for continuing funding of the Iraq war supported the use of force in Iraq.

"AaronS" you're finally right about something, Bush taught us that,! Now didn't he?

If there is a favorable direction in Syria it is likely with the stability provided by Asaad. Iraq is the perfect example of that.

Sorting out Syrian rebels is a longer & more difficult task than reading the Affordable Care Act w/ understanding. But it's clear enough they contain a wide range of views. From which it follows, if we CAN tip the balance in a favorable direction (not obvious), then we SHOULD.

Comparing other revolutions: Many at the time would have said that the American Revolution consisted entirely of extremists. The main difference might be that the foreigner Tom Paine wasn't armed, & wasn't religious (the latter making him a VERY dangerous person -- in contrast to today when BEING religious is seen as dangerous). But he was essential to our continuing the war.

How about the Russian Revolution? Could we have tipped the balance? As a matter of fact we tried, sending the Allied Expeditionary Force to support the Mensheviks. W/ as little publicity as possible, as that was also a time of war-weariness when the American & British publics were reluctant (& hardly able) to get involved in a distant conflict. Unfortunately the effort failed; the only effect was to leave the Bolsheviks suspicious of the West.

I've not seen anything that would show any of the rebels who aren't extreme Neo. The Sunni fighting Assad now are members of the same Ba'ath faction that Saddam belonged to.

(continued from below)

they will HAVE to turn to ANYONE who is fighting the Assad government. To save their own hides. (Even if only in the short run). So if we support them, they can keep Syria from going Islamist. Which is to our benefit.
