Syria Update: Beyond Assad’s Chemical Weapons

    Here is my solution, provided for free:
    1. Somehow provoke Syria into launching a serious strike on Israel, preferably one involving chemical weapons. (Perhaps elements in the army can be bribed or convinced that this is the right thing to do. Perhaps we can leak information about an impending Israeli attack. Perhaps a false flag operation.)
    2. Let Israel know that we will not interfere, and will shield it from diplomatic consequences.
    3. Munch on popcorn.

    Contagious bioweapons are the worst.

  • Assad is a mass murderer. Al Qaeda kills everyone unwilling to return to the 7th Century. Kill em all. They are enormous friction to modernity.

    Do you suppose that the Obama regime doesn’t have ties to terrorist groups and that it doesn’t have chemical weapons?

    The Jeffersonian Foreign Policy would be: let the Russians handle it. No matter what occurs even a repeat of Grozny would involve a better outcome for both of us, and probably the Syrians.

    What does Mr Mead propose as our policy re Syria?
