Syria
Will we have troops on the ground soon?

Al Qaida is part of the opposition. Are we giving them weapons?

Not sure why are we even involved? Did they attack someone. .

I just really don't want to see another Afghanistan or Iraq. Maybe I haven't followed this as close as I should. I'm not even sure why we are involved in another country's problems. Again not talking points just questions. Y'all seem to keep up with thing a lot more then I can so I came to y'all with them.

I trust the prez. They have info we will never see but really another war or police action or whatever they will call it.

RE: Syria
Uhmm, I don't think so. I've been on other forums where one rightwinger typically is ahead of the game in posting the emerging Talking Points from the Right.

"Al Qaida part of the opposition, U.S. giving them weapons" was one he posted at least a week ago.

Your pretend Cajun, right wing trolling is very transparent.

Not wanting another war is right winged? Not wanting to hand weapons to terrorist is right winged? Really. Really. Change the man in the house and I still don't want another war. Since when the right is anti war?

Just google Theriot family. While I'm don't think I'm related to them it will give you an idea. Keep in mind I never seen the show. I just heard about it from people asking me it was part of my family. If I can figure out how to post pics I will send some of my boys eating their first crawfish. The oldest loves it. The youngest not so much.

RE: Syria
This thread is fatuous.

Syria is a religious mosaic of different religious groupings. These groups tend to cluster geographically. The alawites ( aka Nusayri) tend to reside in the NW ( between Lebanon and Turkey.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alawites

The Druze: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Druze

The Kurds: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurdish_people

The current Assad: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assad_family

is a son of Hafez Assad, an alawite and a Baathist. Baathism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ba%27athism) is a secular pan arab nationalist movement; founded by two arab Christians. It gained power in two countries: Syria and Iraq.on is, and always has been, religious. In particular, the Sunni. Minority religious groups, such as the Alawites, the Druze and the Kurds gravitate toward the Ba'ath.

This rebellion has been coming for a long time. It was bound to be long, hard and very destructive. What arises afterward may be turn out to be little better than the Ba'ath regime.

Great info. I agree this seems like it will be a long violate war. Something we shouldn't be involved in. Still trying to find why we should get involved.

RE: Syria
Cannae, some friends who've been to Syria talked about the same thing and were very skeptical that the Syrians can ever come together as a group.

RE: Syria
Suzie, it will be very difficult. I really do not see it myself.

In a way, that is what Ba'athism was all about: creating a higher unity of arab nationalism to rise above these differences. But, ba'athism was too abstract to garner the support needed.

It failed in Iraq and in Syria.

In society which has the diversity that Syria has, the 'higher unity' has to be tolerance. To be secure enough in your faith, that you accept diverse opinion.
An abstraction such as 'ba'athism' can not do the job.

I thought the ruling faction was Sunni. Same as Iran. Shoes you how much I know. Again thanks for the insight.

I just don't want to see our guys get killed over religious strife that won't change anything over there. Especially when the only winner will be Haliburton.
