ecting different results.
3. Naive Americans, as always
Madeleine ,   Israel   (06.22.13)
The Americans want a "smooth transition" in contrast to Iraq? The only people they are fooling is themselves. Arabs, Moslems, rebels - same old same old.
4. to #1

Right on! all a europe; all a america and all a liberals are falling over themselves to help. god save the queen; god bless america etc. De ja vu?
5. Obama dithered too long
Cipora Julianna Kohn   (06.22.13)
if he had started this at least a year ago, the conflict could have been lessened. but obama, being obama, a passive aggressive dithering fool, he has lost the advantage of momentum.
6. WW III here we come....yeehaw !!!
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (06.22.13)
What we are witnessing will end up eventually being nothing less than the complete downfall of America and a total loss of the Jewry thereof. Although, there may yet be a few smart ones that can read the handwriting on the wall, and get out while the going is good. You can blame the dictatorial psychopath Obama for that one, kids.
7. Bankrupt America is once again leading themselevs into
Al   (06.22.13)
a prolonged war that they will sink in. 10 years in Iraq..12 years in Afghanistan 10 years in Vietnam has taught them nothing. Israel must remain strong and ready and do what they can not to get involved in Americas adventure. America leaves her friends faster than a Saturday night one night stand. She is not to be relied on in the least.
8. Training the rebels
A V ,   London. UK   (06.22.13)
I think the us army needs to train themselves first ,following the beating they got in Iraq and Afghanistan and in many places I even don't include the Vietnam war.unless they used carpet bombing they are useless sorry and I love the USA
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (06.22.13)
Weshall be witnessing the same 'trained' rebels making the Americans their target.Anyone caring to think otherwise?
10. Madeleine #3
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (06.22.13)
Most Americans are only interested in food and entertainment. As long as they have those they don't worry.
11. Noodles...
Dror ,   Haifa, Israel   (06.22.13)
From your words I assume you are preparing to leave the sinking ship. When can we expect to see you back home in Israel? Do not procrastinate, make the hop ASAP.
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (06.22.13)
IIt has also trained Iraqi troops who have turned their guns against those that trained htem, using the ammo that the UI.S. supplied
13. Karzai of Afghanistan will not
Ed ,   USA   (06.22.13)
talk with Obama even as Obama now seeks to talk and make nice with Al Quaida there. Obama has been supporting Muslim Brotherhood for several years, which is anti-US/West/Israel. Does Obama with his 'lead from behind' to serial disasters now what he is doing ? he should have begun a year ago and with pro West factions in Syria. He is like Carter with Iran which hunt us to this day and is cause behind much of events. Iraq is a growing mess, except for Kurdish area, Split Syria in parts as Iraq is effectively doing and realigning UK/France borders.And EU meddles in Israel, they too need to stay out.
14. Now the Americans can't complain when they're attacked again
Benoa   (06.22.13)
They have openly chosen Sunni Islam over Shi`ism, under Pharaoh Hussein, aka Abortionbama. Don't complain America when the chi'ite chickens come home to roost ie blow stuff up.
15. Ben Jabo #12
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (06.22.13)
What we have is Obama. If he can run assault style weapons to Mexican drug lords then he can run them to his Muslim friends. What's important to Obama is that American citizens don't have guns or ammo. It's hard to believe people voted for this clown not once but twice.
16. What! The US never learns from its mistakes, do they!
Harry Wright ,   UK   (06.22.13)
Everywhere that they have trained rebels to fight against others, it comes back to them full circle. Afghanistan is a perfect example. They trained the rebels to fight against the Russians and now, they turn their guns against their US trainers, much to the delight of the Russians. This time it is worse! The US is knowingly training and supplying arms to its sworn enemies. They are only fooling themselves when they say they are cherry-picking the "moderates" for the arms. The more aggressive, organized and brutal terrorists will get them, whether by handing over or snatching.
17. Great, lets create another Bin Laden, Hamas, and Hezbollah.
Rachel Rabin ,   TA, Israel   (06.22.13)

19. CIA trains and
Get Real ,   UK   (06.22.13)
the FBI will have to hunt down. Many Jihadists living in the West have gone to Syria to fight with the rebels and AL-Q and if they survive and return what then?.
20. Amen, Eaglebeak and Israel!
ASTRONAUT ,   SC, USA   (06.23.13)
American citizens on the Right Coast stand alongside y'all. Am Yisrael Chai!
21. #19 don't worry
Don't worry, that won't happen. As the case of the Boston Bombers and Fort Hood shooter, the FBI will not hunt these AQ types. They will be too busy seizing legally-held weapons from American citizens.
22. #15 Eaglebeak
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (06.23.13)
Obama is far from being a clown He was adept enough to convince more than half of the voters to VOTE FOR H IM TWICE As P.T.. Barnum had once said "There a sucker born every minute"\ in this instance it should have been multiplied by millions
23. Ben Jabo #22
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (06.23.13)
I think it was his backers like Soros and the mainstream news media that were adept. I think Obama is just a puppet without much talent or skill. P.T. Barnum was sure right.
24. Secular dictatorship vs secular democracy
Em ,   Tunisia   (06.23.13)
The real war is between secular dictatorship and secular democracy your fear of what you call islamist make you blind they are nothing more than pseudo secular conservative that will evolve over time.
