Why is the US government so intent on getting rid of Assad? Seems the best course would be to cozy up with the Russians and help Assad retake all of Syria and crush ISIS.

The US Government is owned by the oil companies and weapons manufacturers.

The middle east has oil and poor people that we can murder without anyone else in the world giving a damn. And for those that do give a damn...too bad because we have the largest military on the planet.

Maybe it's his tendency to mustard gas his own people?


It's probably oil.....

Don't forget how profitable war is as a business. Probably moreso than oil. Plus the ones who make billions on the war do not have to worry about the kids coming back, this is someone else's problem and expense.
Not life, but good life, is to be chiefly valued.

Brilliant strategy by Assad: Kill or drive out the population, then exploit the oil. The oil fields can be managed by a bunch of expats who cycle through, but don't actually live there. Once no one lives in Syria, there will be minimal infrastructure to support, maximizing profit.

Good luck Assad.

The Russians have figured this out and want to be in a friendly, helpful position in order to be able to supply the expats. If Assad thinks that the US is a bunch of snakes, just wait till he partners with the Russian businessmen. The best outcome that he can expect is that he'll end up exiled to a fortified castle somewhere out of sight, counting his allowance.

Meanwhile, the arms dealers are loving it. First they sold arms to all of the local factions, now they are selling arms to 3rd parties who will come in and destroy the original arms. Next, the arms dealers will sell more arms to the winning factions in order to restore the balance of power in the area.

Finally, a new cycle begins with a new list of rearmed players.

The US government might feel differently if they had not inadvertently created ISIS in the first place while funding and arming the rebels/mercenaries they were trying to get to overthrow Assad. Russia only got involved because the US was doing almost nothing about ISIS in the hope they would still oust Assad as that was still the primary goal (in protecting America and her interests).

Why is ousting Assad protecting America and her interests (other than Israel/Saudi Arabia don't like him)?

One would think a stable Syria would be in our best interest. A stable country doesn't generate near as many terrorists or terrorist organizations.

Assad's strategy is to put his country back together by any means necessary. Not liking how Syria is run is not a reason to invade it...especially since we obviously don't care. If Idaho became a rebel city that served as a base for overthrowing the US government you can bet your @ss that there would be bombs dropped on it. We have mentally ill people living on the streets. We have vets who dont have access to good healthcare. We have law enforcement killing people in the streets. We torture prisoners and we invade sovereign nations because we feel like it. We have no moral high ground. Its time for the US to stop murdering people.

The United States created the problem in Syria. If you tried to pinpoint when it started you could probably go all the way back to WW2 or earlier. Lets stick to the last 20 years. Our illegal invasion of Iraq kicked over the first domino and they tumbled all the way to Syria.

Whats done is done. The US is obviously not capable or willing to solve any problems in the middle east because stability makes it hard to steal oil and sell weapons. Soooo...since we aren't going to fix what we broke...lets get the hell out of there already. Let them fix it...let it all burn...whatever....as long as we aren't spending anymore money on it.

Hopefully over the next 50 years all the war mongers running the United States die horrible deaths and the next couple of generations start to behave more like adults and less like destructive toddlers.

I had the same thought during the Vietnam war. Still waiting and hoping ....

As long as there's huge profits in war, it will never end.

I get kicks reading you guys bloviating about Syria after you've ingested a solid dose of good old USA styled propaganda BS.

I didn't get it either. When I considered the source I just wrote it off as a weak case of trolling.

Exactly. He needs a better tin foil hat.

You do have to admit that most of his posts are so batsh*t crazy it's pretty hilarious.
