Why Syria Can’t Be Fixed

Obama is betting the last of his foreign policy cred on beating ISIS by fixing Syria through a peace process that brings together Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia and just about everybody who is anybody in the international terrorism and regime change racket to fight the ISIS war that he doesn’t want to fight.

There’s just one little problem. Nobody on the guest list wants to fix Syria. They want to control it.

The reason that ISIS exists is the same reason that Syria can’t be fixed. ISIS didn’t get so big because Muslims are angry about our foreign policy. It got huge because Sunni Muslims hate Shiite Muslims.

    We should stop wasting time about figuring out whom is to blame.
    We should really try to figure out a way to stop them from killing us.

      “We should really try to figure out a way to stop them from killing us.” We should be helping them kill each other – the more successful they are at killing each other, the fewer of them we will have to deal .

        That is true.
        The strategy is not working in the East and it sure is fucking up in the West.
        So—we keep them fighting and we Keep bringing them in as refugees.
        This is fucking crazy.

    Not to worry john kerry will come up with a “comprehensive peace plan”.

    • I can hardly wait.

        Since taliban jack died I think there’s one lying around.

    It would help if Obama and his gulf state allies stopped funding and arming ISIS. The fighters are paid mercenaries. ISIS needs lots of $$$$ too exist.

    It’s going to turn into a bigger disaster than it already is. We will see a major war between the Sunnis and the Shiites which will turn the ME into a bloodbath. Not that I care about the ME, but it won’t leave us unaffected.

    Syrians aren’t the strange ones, we are. It isn’t that they have a problem that can be fixed, it is that they are living the way people lived for thousands of years. We can’t just recreate the conditions that led to Western civilization in a new place.

    Sorry Tommy— Shove the Guilt trip up your ass and then pretend to be a Man.

    Obama used up his last scrap of foreign policy cred a long time ago. It’s been years since he told Assad don’t you dare cross the red line or else and he’s as clueless about Syria now as he was then.

    Let’s see. Israel will not intervene unless attacked, and would be attackers know that such a move would be suicidal given Israel’s military strength. The Kurds will rout anyone that encroaches on their turf, but will not move beyond since they lack the resources and inclination to be an occupying power. That leaves the other parties to duke it out. Pass the nachos!
