Response to bananas (Reply #10)

12. Look, I'm no fan of Assad, but...

 

round one in our Syrian adventure to topple him our DOD and CIA funding and training basically went to ISIS and al qaeda aligned sunni jihadist groups as we are unable to figure out which of the batshit crazy sunni jihadists were the 'good guys' and which were the 'bad guys'.

round two of our Syrian adventure was essentially a repeat of round one, only difference is that there aren't any non-sunni jihadist groups left opposing Assad except the Kurds and we are once again fucking them to keep on terms with the Turks.

Our Syrian adventure is an unmitigated fucking disaster. Assad ain't going away. The Russians and Iranians have made it official. Now is the time to stop with the program to use military force to kick Assad out of power and eat the shit sandwich and negotiate an end to the civil war and form an at least tacit alliance that includes Assad's forces that will defeat Isis in both Syria and Iraq. Plus we should really stop fucking the Kurds.
