we need to stay out of the whole thing. you can't tell the good guys from the bad guys. most of the rebels are as bad if not worse than assad. let the other muslims take care of it. we need to stay far away. muslim garbage is not our garbage and it's about time we get out of the whole area. just keep muslims out of here or we will become england.

The final outcome will be a system similar to Lebanon's. A generation will be lost and nothing gained in the end.

In will come the good guys to save the day....and then the next Gov't. will start receiving F16s and such....what a convoluted crap shoot.... ......Maranatha... Seek His FACE while it may be found.
