#1 It is much more dangerous when Islamists decide to work through the system, and rule a state like in Turkey, where they can do real damage to US interest

Here's a clue: Islamists don't need to rule. They merely have to ingratiate themselves into the system. You experts might want to start looking at places closer to home.

#2 See also TOPIX > [Independent.UK] JIHADISTS SEE SYRIA AS JUST THE BEGINNING OF A [Regional? Trans-Regional?]MIDDLE EAST REVOLUTION.

* SAME > SYRIA: ASSAD SURVIVAL ASSURED.

Yuuup.

Wid Al-Qaeda affiliates + aligned cleaning out the domestic Syria Rebs, IMO BOTH ASSAD + TEHRAN NOW IS THE BEST TIME FOR NEW RAPPROCHEMENT WID THE US.

Iff the USA = POTUS Obama [ + NATO-EU = UNO]wishes to avoid having to put US ground forces in Syria, THEN THE US NOW NEEDS TO PROTECT ASSAD + KEEP ISRAEL + IDAF FROM UNILATERALLY ATTACKING IRAN'S NUCPROGS.

As long as Al-Qaeda + similar hardline, pro-Jihad Foreign MilTerr Groups stay in the region, Assadian Syria + Iran are now among the US' BFFS in the Middle East.

* CHINESE MILITARY FORUM > [NYT] IS IRAN THE NEXT CHINA?

As in "post-US" + "Superpower" wannabe, albeit wid imperfect or problematic rise, that is???

Perhaps more accurately, OWG GLOBALIST "CO-SUPERPOWER"???

MORESO AGAIN IFF ...

* REAL CLEAR POLITICS > [Al-Monitor] THE INEVITABLE RISE OF AL-QAEDA IN LIBYA.

* WASHINGTON TIMES > LEON PANETTA: [US = USDOD]MILITARY READINESS "BADLY DAMAGED" BY SEQUESTER.

* WAFF > RUSSIA FACES A MUSLIM TAKEOVER |
[Washington Times] BERMAN: MISREADING A RUSSIA ON THE RUN, from SSSSSSSHHHHH ....CCCCCCCCCC domestic Islam.

Lest we fergit - CAUCASIANS, HAMAS, EAST EUROS + KOSOVARS, + even UIGHURS + INDONESIANS are all
fighting agz Assad in Syria.

Russia = USA = China, etal. = all have a stake in making sure Baby Assad stays in power + wid a strong military to keep or put the Hard Boyz down.
