What are conditions now compared to pre war in

Iraq and Libya. Looks to me that the economies have been destroyed and people in those countries live desperately. Violence is an everyday occurrence and the middle class has been destroyed.

Yes, Saddam Hussein and Moammar Kadafi were dictators, and yes they both brought progress to their countries along with political repression. I frankly was shocked to see pictures coming Libya during their overthrow and how modern the country looked. But both made the mistake of bucking the US and the petrodollar, and Obama apparently has an affinity for radical Muslims (or maybe Obama is just a murderer and a complete incompetent).

Assad is not saint, but compared to the radical thugs who seek to overthrow him, I think anyone in his right mind would prefer the status quo. Look at the Christian villages that the rebels have massacred, villages that were not harmed by Assad.

I think we have the modern day equivalent of Adolph Hitler in the White House, one who expressly desires to commit acts of international aggression under the category of war crimes. I think he has already demonstrated himself to be criminal, by sending support to the rebels, and by just planning such attacks.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.
