  • Good article, right questions. The answer is obvious: Just keep them out of the West, and let the Arabs/Muslims kill each other off to their heart’s content. It is stupid to get involved in their madness in any way other than keeping them at bay. Their countries are hellholes because they made them that way, because of their Islamic attachments.

      If only the arabs would keep their own conflict-displaced people instead of sending them off on hijrah.

    This little shit has to go – along with all the other tin-pot dictators in the mooslim world.

      Agreed, but who is going to replace him. I originally felt that the the invasion of A’stan was a good idea. I believed that they were actually civilized but suffering under bad government. I am prepared to admit that I was wrong and that they are actually very backwards savages who will never have a rational sane society like we take for granted. I think that Assad is as good as we are going to get, and if he is deposed the government of Syria will likely be ISIS/Taliban/Al Quada.

        Rational, sane behavior never works in a fundemental tribal society.

      No, tyrannical islamist theocracies are far worse than the dictators with track records of relative stability in the region, for example Mubarek, Ghaddafi and Assad.

      The removal of the first two ruined their countries. The removal of the third will do likewise.

    I hope the Israelis aren’t dragged into the Syrian morass.
    Assad may be stupid enough to try the Arab tactic of attacking Israel hoping to unify/distract the Mo’s.
