Looks like it's going to stay ugly in Syria. Hope genocide either way doesn't happen. The Allawites and Christians supporting Assad are in big trouble if Assad loses.
Are there any good guys here on any side?
The New Vendee.
A man with the courage of his convictions--and no back door..
He can hold out for a very, very long time as long as he has a bunker complex and access to his biochem weapon stockpiles.This speech may be a show of strength and longevity that helps him and his key associates get a better witness protection retirement somewhere in the former Soviet Union.
This will not end well. I just hope it will end without US involvement.
And by "involvement," I mean a military invasion on our part.
Speaking of tacky memorials, is that a huge collage of "victims" behind Assad?
The man so nice they named a big lake after him.
Syria may end up divided with an Alawite enclave and a Sunni state next to Turkey. That's the best option.
But, but, but tyrants are always secular!
The cornball brother is out of the game. Maybe the Redskins are the enemy of God?
Lessee, you've got the Pencil Neck on one side, Zero and Vlad the Impaler on the other.When the war starts, call it Barbarossa II.
Given that Assad is a secular ruler, how likely is it that God will send is enemies to hell?
The less of them there are, the better off we all are.
"NPR music is the rock music of aging children;"I used to listen to KFAC in Los Angeles. It was a classical station and, about 10 or 15 years ago, changed to hard rock or rap, or something. Now, the only classical station is KUSC, run by my alma mater. It used to have an evening program called "The Gas Company's Evening Concert." That announcer had a very distinctive voice. One night I went to the Hollywood Bowl a few years after KFAC vanished. The gas company announcer was the announcer at the Bowl. He got a standing ovation from 20,000 people.
I agree with General Sheridan.At least in determining who is "good." Just sayn'
So says Anna Wintour's reformer.
'Thats a bunch of malarkey.'
I remember a few years ago when the middle east was looking like it might be headed in the right direction, with Al Qaeda embarrassed and demoralized, the first real Arab democracy in place, people openly celebrating their freedom, and the most destabilizing leader in the region hanging from a rope.What happened?
There was a report on BBC early in the revolt. The bodies of teen age children were returned to their parents. The bodies were bruised and their genitals were mutilated. That report was on that one day, and there were no follow up reports. The coverage of the abuses at Abu Ghraib, by contrast, went on forever. There are people doing time for the abuses at Abu Ghraib. I don't think there's much chance that those Syrian child torturers will be ever brought to justice and, except among their immediate family, there will be no outrage either....The dynamic of the middle east is such that all change is for the worst.
"What happened?"The ME is evil. Can't be remedied until Islam is gone.
1) How's that Arab spring workin' out for ya?2) This will be Obama's speech in about 6 months when he forcibly tries to take people's guns away from them and they resist. Enjoy the fascism, morons!
Now Syria has good 'gun control' and the arms used to overthrow that creep cane from other countries.If Obama gets the guns banned here and later rules by executive order were would WE gut our guns to take back the country?See that is what the 2nd Amendment is all about. It protects the rest of the constitution.And George Washington was a hero to us, but to the King of England he was held in the same view as Assad has for the rebels overthrowing him.
Pogo for Secretary of State!
What happened?Obama forgot to inherit the "Let all history happen all at once - without any stops or reversals" button that the Neocons had promised him.
Is Hollywood afraid of making a decent anti-muslim film?
@Lem:No, at this point,even if they were interested in criticizing current Islamic society, they're now terrified of being arrested by Obama, since he's proven willing and able to do so for no crime whatsoever.Viva la First Amendment....er viva la censorship!
@ O Ritmore:But, but, but tyrants are always secular!---Tyrants always cloak themselves in the state religion, with, of course, themselves as the messiah.In modern left-wing ideology, "religion" is the opiate of the masses, and is therefore replaced with political ideology if the religion doesn't support the left-wing ideology. Hence why China has people who regularly test citizens on knowing party dogma---rather like inquisitors "testing" local populations in the middle ages for lack of orthodoxy. Stalin used such tactics, as do all communists: lack of fealty to the political dogma, in the form of required government quizzes, makes you an un-person. Hitler had similar plans for his empire, once he exterminated those races he deemed too cancerous to be Nazis (Jews, Slavs, Poles, blacks, etc.). Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, Castro...and Obama.Same tactics, same tune.

What is needed in Syria, and most other places in the Mideast and North Africa is a whole lot of sudden death. Georgde HW Bush and George W. Bush tried hard to keep the wars small, in hopes that the "moderate Muslims would corral the crazies. Considering that I would trade every Muslim in the world to prevent so much as a skinned knee on one of my grandchildren I am hoping that Assad flings so many of his chemical weapons around that it kills everyone, including him.
No Assad, you're the terrorist.
AprilApple said...No Assad, you're the terrorist.=============Both sides in a real Civil War have to play ugly. The idiot Bush's endlessly repeated phrase "nothing is worse than a leader who kills is own people"....of course omitted mention of Abraham Lincoln and all the bloody revolutions and wars of unification that we call "progress".Lincoln killed a lot more people than Assad.By the "Bush/neocon metric" , was Lincoln a bigger terrorist than Assad??
Yeah, like his hands are clean.
Pogo said... "What happened?" The ME is evil. Can't be remedied until Islam is gone. Indeed. Islam has been and always will be the problem. Not Christianity, not Buddhism, not Mormonism, just Islam.

Moderate Muslims? No such species exists. Ever.
