I'd note that Romney is up front about it and our enemies as well as our allies know where they stand. That stability through leadership....whether
people agree with what it does or not.....is what has generally kept the chaos of the last 18 months from happening over the last 20-30 years. In my
Personally, I think the man is an idiot for supporting that side of the conflict..but then, how exactly would the U.S. actually SUPPORT Assad in this
reality? Umm... The only winning move here really is not to play at all. I'd prefer that....however, if we MUST play this deadly friggen game,

Bashar al-Assad and his government, sources familiar with the matter said.
Obama's order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence "finding," broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide

No President should feel free to fund private civil wars in other nations and Reagan damn near lost HIS Presidency over this very type of thing. Now?
It's blown off like it's just par for the corrupt course. Within a couple Presidents, at this rate, the public won't even hear later that a secret
order even existed.
Heck...If we don't even vote out the people who have spent years doing this to us, we simply deserve the time when writing orders at all will be
deemed unnecessary and they just outright do whatever they'd like because that's what they felt like that day or week and we may get told or not at
