Round and round it goes, where it stops nobody knows. Or, apparently cares very much.

And where is the OUTRAGE from the rest of the Islamic world? Why aren't the Saudis there, battling this incursion? How about the Turks? How about all those ''peace loving'' Muslims around the world?

Where is the outrage from the Care2 members who have spent the last month bewailing the fate of the Palestinian people? Maybe Iraqi and Syrian civilians aren't as important?
I'm sorry for being cynical, but I have to wonder if the Palestinian civilians weren't really their big concern.......

with the help of their ally Israel, this is no wonder....

Israel supplied weapons to the Syrian terrorist groups

I read on the news this morning that the US UK and the French are to arm the Iraqi Kurds.This will no doubt spread the fighting to neighboring Turkey which has been at war with the Kurd's who have been fighting their demands for an independent Kurdish state.this decision will not go down well with the Turkish state.

The war on terrorism won't end til almost ALL of the arab-islamic world changes and is brought to live in the 21st century .....but patience for that to happen is wearing thin.

It worries me that Americans are so against the NSA and worry more about privacy than security. THis isn't the time in our history we should weaken the powers of those trying to protect themselves, their families and our's too.

Soon, Assad will not be needed. He probably needs to plan his exile. I am sure Putin will accept him.
