 File under: Govt of Syria 

#1 The alternative to Baby Assad + new BFF Iran is for Bad US-Global Econ, Sequester, Shutdown + post-Shutdown hit Bammer Amerika to put US troops on the ground in Syria + elsewhere.

Which as I recall correctly POTUS Bammer promised to bring US Troops home as part of his re-election campaigns.

#3 Is the Syrian War lasting longer a bad thing for the US?

#4 It's gotten to the point that anytime I see something to do with a US politician I proceed to the nearest exit.

Is there anywhere to go once you've reached the abyss of total despair and disgust? 8^(

#5 >"If he thinks he's going to solve problems by running for re-election

Well he's seen what happened since the zero got elected. America is almost in a civil war.

#10 Bloviating buffoonery. What the hell is the alternative to Assad? Does Kerry think if Assad steps down they'll have utopia and a "hands across Syria" type event?

I can say to him, I think with certainty that this war will not end as long as foreign fighters and jiahadists remain on Syrian soil.

#11 My hunch is that observation will not qualify for MENSA membership, but maybe a Nobel Peace Prize.

#13 See also STARS-N-STRIPES > KERRY EAGER TO BREAK ASSAD STRANGLEHOLD ON SYRIA.

* INDIAN DEFENCE FORUM > RADICALS MAY SHIFT TO EUROPE FROM SYRIA: NATO [SecGen Rasmussen].

In addition, the MSM-Net is also repor that there are more active Militants, including Foreign, in Syria than was in Afghanistan during the 1980's anti-Soviet war.

The only rationale for the US-Allies to get rid of Baby Assad is that the former desires a wholly controlled, de facto "yes man" in charge of the country, not a partial or independent.

OTOH TOPIX, DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > WEST SLOWLY BELIEVES ISLAMISTS CAPABLE OF [Secular or Liberal = semi-Western] UPHOLDING DEMOCRACY, albeit wid Islamic-Sharia characteristics.

The Maha-Rushian questionne' du jour is, IFF NOT BABY ASSAD, WHOM IS THE US-ALLIES' MIGHTY DEMOCRATIST TO TAKE POWER FROM ASSAD IN SYRIA + FIGHT AL-QAEDA, ETAL. FOREIGN MILITANTS???

AND

* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > [Al-Jazeera] IRAN-US RECONCILIATION PART OF A BIGGER PICTURE.

* SAME > DAILY KOS: US CUTS OFF AID TO SYRIAN REBELS.

Mainly because the anti-Assad "Syrian Rebels", e.g. FSA are now abandoning their former US-West backers, + merging or joining wid Al-Qaeda affiliate groups.

* INDIAN DEFENCE FORUM > SYRIA: LIKE IT OR NOT, WE HAVE TO TALK WID BASHAR AL-ASSAD.

* TOPIX > RISING AL-QAIDA INFLUENCE BOLSTERING ASSAD'S GRIP ON SYRIA.

* SAME > ASSAD GROWS MORE CONFIDENT IN SYRIA.

[MONTY PYTHON'S "LIFE OF BRIAN" > ROMAN CENTURION AT "CRUCIFIXION" = [IIRC = paraph] "ALL THOSE WHOM DO NOT WANT TO BE CRUCIFIED NEXT TO THE NON-KOSHER, ALLEGED MESSIAH BRIAN RAISE YOUR RIGHT HAND ... ... ... [no one] RIGHT THEN, ITS UNANIMOUS, HE STAYS"!]
