It would seem we just can't help but want to get involved, and I have a feeling we will get very involved.



US President Barack Obama has recognized the main Syrian opposition group as a "legitimate representative" of the Syrian people. This brings the US in line with its allies, including Britain, France and several Arab states.




"We've made a decision that the Syrian Opposition Coalition is now inclusive enough, is reflective and representative enough of the Syrian population that we consider them the legitimate representative of the Syrian people in opposition to the Assad regime," Obama said in an interview with ABC.


And lets not forget to mention it's not our place to be backing anybody, especially when it makes us less safe.



Critics contend the coalition and the Free Syrian Army (FSA), which supports the opposition body, are closely connected with Islamists. The FSA’s newly elected joint command is estimated to be composed mostly of Muslim Brotherhood-linked commanders and excludes the most senior officers who defected from Assad’s more secular military.




“People here in Washington don’t seem to understand… If you do like the government in Cairo, then you will love the government that comes to power in Damascus. You will see a Sunni Muslim Islamist government, a Muslim Brotherhood-style government, that is absolutely intolerant, fundamentally hostile to the West,” retired US Army Colonel and military author Douglas Macgregor told RT.

Yes, it is RT, but I think this is worth looking in to and discussing.

I don't understand why the West are so keen to help start what might eventually become the new Caliphate. It's not like it will end well.

I just don't get it.
