Nimrod08 saidThe US is not a peaceful country, nor is it a broker for peace. Syria is a beautiful proud country with a troubled out-o-touch leadership, but it is being destroyed by a proxy war.
well if you live near or in Israel I would say if it was not for the U.S, you probably would not exist today.
As for Syria I agree we should stay out. Americans are tired of coming to the aide of countries namely Islamic countries only to be decried and attacked by people of the Islamic faith.
One example is Bosnia, the USA intervened on behalf of Muslims being slaughter and somehow in the end never received credit, when Europe sat on their asses.
the video you posted of Eric Harroun,a radicalized convert to Islam has nothing to do with America. He is one guy who converted to Islam and decided to go on Jihad.
The way i would solve this middle east issue is to withdraw all the funding we give to Turkey, Egypt, Israel , Jordan and let them figure out their own problems. The area is an overpopulated desert only because of money that pours in from the outside.
I am often very hard on Obama for his policies, but in this case I think he has done the right thing. The Syrians should figure out it own problems, or look to rich Islamic Muslims for help.
