2. US to train Syrian Rebels
Nathan ,   Israel/USA   (02.28.13)
Hmmm...if I remember my history correctly we trained a group of Vietnamese rebel so they could fight against french colonists (We sent Native Americans to teach them Guerrilla warfare). I could be wrong but that kind of bit us in the back side a few years later. Moral of the story..It is not always a good Idea to train foreign combatants when there is a good possibility that they will use that training against you or your allies in the near future
3. Obama is making sure that eventually there will be one more

group fighting the Zionist Entity :-))
4. A Threat to America
Brod ,   USA   (02.28.13)
Congress should stop this insanity of supporting fanatical Islamist-Jihadist terrorists fighting Syria. Only fools would be siding with these dark forces who are part of a global network of Islamist-Jihadist terrorism that has attacked America on 9/11, and the rest of the world since then.
5.  Wise move? That jagoff in the top pic sez it all.
Cameron ,   USA   (02.28.13)
6. Good - Assad and Iran fall
Brian ,   Los Angeles USA   (02.28.13)
The US should be much more active in breaking the stalemate in Syria - give the rebels much more non-lethal equipment and support, including using our satellite intelligence to boost their efforts. Assad falling will be a HUGE blow to Iran and Hezbollah, our mortal enemies.
7. Turning up the heat ...
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (03.01.13)
... on Iran. Didn't Iran say that any such intervention would be viewed as a "declaration of war?" Well, in that case, it appears that the United States has declared war on Iran. Wonder what the Iranian response will be. I'm guessing that Ahmedinejad and the college of mullahs will sit like docile little boys, each with his thumb stuck firmly and deeply where it is usually kept.
