Among distention and discord among the American public that is rivaling the Vietnam era we have an incumbent President who is hell bent on carrying out what amounts to be a travesty of injustice for the American public. This blatant disregard of the majority of Americans on opening up major hostilities with Syria that is going to cost taxpayers billions of dollars we don't have anyway, only proves once again our present elected officials have turned their backs on the concerns that really matter right here in the United States. It always seems to be for the past 30 years or so that once people get in office the majority do not truly represent the concerns of their constituents but rather serve the lobbyists and ultimately attain a very self serving ideology that is contrary to what they were elected to do in the first place. A corruption at the highest level of government has now been forcing an agenda that has no bearing on the welfare of the United States has taken hostage the American public.
In a Pew Research poll released just this last Tuesday 29 percent of Americans favored only air strikes “in response to reports" that the Syrian government used chemical weapons. Need we remind everyone that no hard cold facts have been turned up to substantiate that in fact Assad authorize the use of chemical weapons. The whole issue with Syria remains so inconclusive that any interference by the West, that means the United States, without definitive proof that in fact Assad, with intent, did deliberately authorize the deployment of chemical weapons in an attempt to quell the Syrian National Coalition assault against the government of Assad is a lame excuse at best to exasperate the ongoing crisis in Syria. Whether Assad did or didn't authorize chemical weapons it is the international community, the UN, and not the United States acting alone or with few allies, has to unite a coalition to find the answers before any attempt is made to interfere in a civil war that has only intensified.
This same Pew Research poll shows that over 50% of the American public oppose any sort of military action in and around Syria. The majority of Americans stand together in total non support of what our congress has now been inclined in authorizing. The President's notion that a military strike would be the best way to assert our selves as the worlds police and not the UN truly is diplomacy at it's finest hour, pun intended. Our meddling in the Syrian crisis only spurs more antagonism which translates into more bloodshed in which everyone looses.
With Russia involved in sending a battle group into the Mediterranean where in Syria they already have a military base opens up another quandary for our illustrious President. A President who still maintains that the use of force is in the best interest of our national security. To date their is no credible reason why the Syrian crisis is vital to the United States national security or for that matter our stability. But, when our leaders openly invite more antagonism with the rhetoric spewing form the Secretary of State and the insistence from the President that military action is vital for our national security when their isn't any viable reason to do so and is against the will of the majority of United States citizens truly indicates our failure as a whole nation. It is now no wonder why so many view America as the premier "War Monger."
Many agree that all the United States will do in the aftermath is turn Syria into another Bosnia. It can be said however that Assad isn't a saint either. And, what also is a well know fact is that today large sections of the Syrian population have been disenchanted with the Assad government. But, then again we can make the same case as with almost any non Scandinavian country. It is also a know facet in Syria that the National Coalition are trained, armed and funded by, you guessed it, the United States, NATO, the Saudi Arabia Qatar military alliance, both the Free Syrian Army and Al Nusrah. It is also known that Al Nusrah are associated and are made up of fighters from Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups. All of this means that if we engage in armed assault in Syria we do so as allies of Al Qaeda. Just think of the ramifications of what we have done.
It also should be noted that since the start of the Arab Spring the Western Press has portrayed the Syrian rebels in a very positive light when in fact they have been all along just another extension of terrorist groups that have been instigating violent overthrow. They are basically terrorists currently serving as foot soldiers of the Western political interests in that region. It is they who have been engaging in random killings of civilians, with the Western media casually blaming it all on the Bashar al-Assad government without doing any on the ground investigation or finding any hard cold facts to support their allegations.
In fact, it is the United States backing of Al Nusrah terrorists which in western terminology is somehow misconstrued as meaning rebel forces and not terrorists and not Assad’s army who have been slaughtering innocent lives, targeting the Shiite Muslim Alawite minorities in which Assad belongs while massacring Syrian Kurds for siding with the Assad regime.
If the United States intervenes and is successful in helping the National Coalition replace Assad all we have done would have been in helping to dismantle a secular regime that had kept a multi-ethnic Syria safe for minorities, and installed in its place a bunch of hardcore Salafi terrorists who will embark on another round of ethnic cleansing directed at the Alawite and Christian minorities.
In other words, all that a military strike on Syria will accomplish is to turn Syria into a continued war zone. But the truth of the matter is Assad whose alliances with Hezbollah, Hamas and Iran whose oil pipeline politics are a perennial threat to Arab oil interests which is of vital importance to the United States political machine it is now wonder our President is in favor of a military strike in helping depose the Assad regime. But, what has made military intervention such an urgent necessity for the US is the fact that the Syrian army has effectively won the war against the rebels trained and funded by the US. The political fallout and such complete humiliation if the Assad regime remains in power our leaders won't kindly accept it. With the threat of the disruption of Oil flowing from the Mid East has also made it a more than probable cause to why our leaders so bent on interfering even though we knowingly are in lockstep sort of speaking with terrorists groups and even al Qaeda.
