    SuperLib: But didn't you support Obama going after Assad early on, which would have played right into the hands of ISIS?

    Wolfpack: Not until Obama drew his Red Line in the sand.

    Nah. Obama made his red line quote in August 2012. In Feb 2012 you said, "Will President Obama continue to stand by while Syrian's are slaughtered? Well of course he will." In May 2012 you said, "You can't win if you don't get in the fight. How much longer is President Obama going to wait and watch Syrians be slaughtered." In Aug 2012 you continued with the "slaughter" theme with "The US is not helping Syria. Hillary is just sitting around watching the slaughter."

    My guess is that you don't really know what your position is/was in Syria except for "criticize Obama." Fast forward to 2014 and suddenly you're telling the world that it was Obama's support for the rebels that got us here. You just kind of make things up as you go along then have no idea what you said before.

    Wolfpack: It seems that Obama's nonsensical strategy has failed in record time.

    Wolf, didn't you originally criticize Obama for not attacking Assad?

    WilliB: You seem to assume that just becauce McCain is clueless, every other GOP member is too. That is not true. Fore example, Rand Paul nails it in this article:

    Paul is the exception in the Republican party and I give him kudos for sticking to his guns. But if you want to see history as it unfolded, not the "WilliB" version, just look at the articles from 2 years ago:

    GOP Debate Brings Out Tough Talk on Syria (http://www.frontpagemag.com/2012/ryan-mauro/candidates-join-al-qaeda-in-supporting-syria-coup/)

    Three of the four Republican presidential candidates endorsed regime change in Syria during last night’s debate, with Ron Paul being the lone exception. Rick Santorum described Syria as a “puppet state of Iran” and said “we could do no worse” than the Assad regime. Newt Gingrich was more specific and said the U.S. should covertly arm the Syrian rebels so they can topple the regime. Mitt Romney said that Syria is “Iran’s route to the sea” and that the revolution is something that the U.S. must “grab hold of.”

    You'll find hundreds and hundreds of articles where Republicans supported the US supporting the rebels. Which brings me to the next point: the articles consistently show Obama as reluctant in giving much of any support to the rebels. Which was, of course, the Republican's reason for criticizing him.

    May 2012: "The White House has rejected arming rebel groups, saying it does not know enough about them and does not want to “further militarize the situation.”

    You can do the search yourself to find hundreds of articles saying the same thing. Obama eventually supported smaller groups of rebels with things like radios and medical kits, but obviously went nowhere near the level of support Republicans wanted him to give. I believe the criticism of Obama at the time was that he wasn't showing "leadership" because he was sitting on the sidelines.

    Fast forward to 2014, and WilliB would have us believe that the rebels took these radios and medical kits and took over Syria and now Iraq. All because of Obama's steadfast and reckless support of ISIS....heh.

    I suppose I could have written this a long time ago but it's hard to muster the energy required to prove someone wrong when they've obviously going out of their way to distort reality, and obviously you'll just continue to do the same anyway. But after seeing dozens if not hundreds of posts of your trying to make your version of reality stick, I figured it was time to step in and give other readers a history lesson. You should reset your counter to zero now.

    WIlliB: the West does not have to "side with" Assad, but we can leave him alone to deal with the Jihadis in his country.

    Just what Obama really did.

    Fascinating. I wasn't aware that this was still going on. I remember an investigation started but I just kind of lost track of it over the years.

    So what's the final verdict? Or is it still ongoing?

    So if The Ukraine shot down the plane then you'd have to believe the Dutch are either in on it or too stupid to figure out what keyboard warriors tell us is obvious.

    I can mostly agree with that plasticmonkey says above. The biggest part of the problem, in my opinion, is that the US hasn't really developed a good way of having a dialogue about race.

    It's true that the case is about the actions of the police force in Fergusen. Unfortunately, when I see a racial issue come up I do tend to think the media trips over their own dicks presenting it. They have a process for marketing everything nowadays and they go into race mode when something like this happens. So I can see bass' point, but it's not the only point to discuss and that's all the Right wants to discuss at times.

    I also know that the black community does have internal issues that can be swept under the carpet when incidents like this come up. But plastic's point holds that it's not the focus and it isn't the time to be talking about that when you have racist, militant cops arresting people on a whim. It's time to focus on them.

    There are just so many distractions and agendas that can get in the way of what the focus should be and the US isn't good at sorting it out.

    FizzBit: Everyone is lying here

    We must be in the thousands of people lying by now.

    I do have to admit that there is some sense of fascination regarding people such as yourself. In the US we have fringe players but they are contained on the fringe and their talking points are repeated by people you give a nod to but roll your eyes on the inside. But in Russia these types of people seem to be the majority of the voting population.

    I suppose with all of the "obvious" evidence of the coverup by dozens of nations and countless journalists, that would mean the Dutch are in on it, too? Give them credit for taking one for the team and agreeing to have their own people killed while the evidence is so obvious that people on computers can figure it out themselves. The Netherlands must really have a deep-seeded hatred of Russia to keep quiet and play their part.

    At the end of the day you will be safe. Maybe Putin can stay in power for another 20 years and save you from the evil countries who decided to hatch a grand plan against you for no reason other than the fact that we all hate Russia. Putin is your savior and he's the only one standing in front of the West's plans to take over your country entirely. I have to admit that our plan isn't working as well as we'd like, but Putin can't live forever.

    We will have our day. Until then, rally around Putin and give the man what he needs to protect you. You shouldn't be victims.

    Russia is turning into the new North Korea. Centralized power, control of the media, and out of control corruption. The propaganda is the same, painting themselves as helpless victims of worldwide aggression and the only thing keeping the foreign attackers at bay is the dear leader.

    Yep. Just a 9-year old girl shooting a man in the face with an Uzi. Not even worth reporting.

    Time to start increasing the sanctions and isolating Russia from the global marketplace. It's hard to believe that Putin is a man in his right mind.

    The Chinese have largely been silent. As Russia's main ally, it paints a pretty interesting picture. But the Ruskies still have Cuba, Venezuela, and North Korea.

    It's a fact that the US has and is supplying military arms to Syrian rebels and some of those rebels have turned out to be extremist IS jihadist. Now we are bombing some of those very same people. Anyone can give a thumbs down but can you show proof that this has not happened or at least debate my comment?

    It's hard to tell. Not anything about ISIS, but whether the person who says comments like these are stupid or just pretending to be stupid. With WilliB, he's just pretending to be stupid to try to gain support. As for you....not sure.

    Obviously the US was in contact with groups on the ground. And obviously they were in contact with the more moderate groups who could form some kind of transitional government. And obviously any assistance they gave was superficial, like small arms, medical kits, etc. It's what happens when you want information about what's happening on the ground.

    You'd have to be very stupid (or pretending to be) to think that the US had any real contact with a group like ISIS, a group that was disavowed by Al Queda. Yet here we are.

    It's created an interesting group of comrades. You have the pro-Russians who are obsessed with anything anti-American. You have the radical liberals like yourself who are obsessed with the same. And you have the anti-Islamists who are willing to walk with you hand in hand despite being mostly against you on every other issue imaginable. And naturally you have the anti-Obama crowd who live for nothing other than to be anti-Obama. In the end you have 4 different groups who are more than happy to get in bed with each other to advance their own agenda.

    So what do you guys really believe? Who knows? The fact is that you're willing to spread the same lies and for now that's good enough.
