Stay Out Of Syria
How does an unpopular president sell the American people on a war in Syria against ISIS after failing to sell the war in Syria against Assad?How does an unpopular president sell the American people on a war in Syria against ISIS after failing to sell the war in Syria against Assad?
He doesn't. He appears aloof, goes golfing and lets the same old neocons and liberals (Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Mike Rogers, Diane Feinstein) beat the war drums and blame him for NOT ACTING.
Consider this an exercise in critical thinking. Step outside of the 24-hour news cycle and look at how we got here..... It may make you look at this situation differently.
Start in Benghazi. More evidence is coming to light that we were arming the Syrian rebels (Many now in ISIS) to the teeth. At least 500 Million Taxpayer dollars worth of American weaponry went to Syrian Rebels. (Martosko, Daily Mail, 4-22-14)
Syrian Rebels set off chemical weapons and blamed Assad (Nebehay, Reuters, 5-5-13) in order to drag the US into the Syrian civil war. The neocons and Obama beat the drums of war, but Americans not wanting to get involved in Syria and not knowing who we should be supporting SHOUTED DOWN the war drums and we stayed out of Syria.

Fast forward to the new enemy - ISIS. The SAME people who told us about a year ago that we needed to save from Assad are the SAME people beating the same war drums to stop ISIS in..... wait for it..... SYRIA.
At the same time that we are told the ISIS threat is everywhere, we are told we need to strike SYRIA. WHY???? WHY SYRIA?
Shouldn't we be bolstering our defenses? Securing our border? Rooting out foreign nationals on our soil? Raising our awareness to the possibilty a domestic attack? WHY is the answer going to war in SYRIA? Regime change? Arab Spring/Muslim Brotherhood? Why SYRIA?

ISIS is a radical islamist group full of psychotic militants. So why did we arm them? What did they think ISIS was going to do with the weapons? They knew. They knew they would act like psychotic militant radicals act.
Assad wasn't scary enough. Create the bogeyman, let the bogeyman cause some havoc, turn on the bogeyman and..... go to war with the bogeyman.
Obama could not sell this new war to the American people. No one trusts him. So he plays golf and looks aloof while the usual neocons and liberals beat the drums of war (McCain/Graham, NY Times, 8-29-14) until he comes around.
Pacifism is utopian and foolish. There are bad, evil people. ISIS and Assad are not good folks. That's why we fight for our 2nd Amendment rights to defend ourselves and our country. We should accept that ISIS is a threat and our government should act to DEFEND our country accordingly. But is going to war in SYRIA in our best interest?
That is the true crux of the situation.
