America, at least publicly, seems destined to put its military might against Syria, notwithstanding the fact that America will have to arm and train terrorists it has been fighting for a decade, notwithstanding America will be risking a world war and notwithstanding the simple fact that every authority advises against this policy and the American people want no part of it.
Not all Jihadists come to Jordan and Turkey and, eventually enter Syria (and Iraq) as terrorists. Most come for the $3,000 cash payment to their families, for the $200 per month, for the food and, frankly, for the free cigarettes. Most don’t arrive as hardcore Jihadists or terrorists, in fact few do. Most, if not all, however, those who survive, will leave.
To all but the mentally challenged, the Global War on Terror is an artificial construct, 90% false flag terror, 90% bank robbery, 90% “Hollywoodism.”
When Gaddafi was brutally murdered, the outline of what would continue was now unquestionable. Freedom was the last thing these revolutions would bring; this was clearly as “softening up” in preparation for what many now see a reestablishment of the Ottoman Empire. Syria and Iraq, both beleaguered by terrorist groups, Western backed, air support from the international psychopaths, Turkey and Israel, are going to be the dominos that bring the United States to its knees.
The Muslim Brotherhood is but another CIA “construct” from the Cold War days, one of several such as the Mujahedeen, ideological powerhouses to feed the wars on the periphery of the Soviet Union, Bosnia and Kosovo, Chechnya and Afghanistan.

Sounds to me like the Iranian's are freaking out at the thought of their Syrian proxies loosing their grip.

Do you really think we are fighting a war on terror?
We are executing foreign leaders (and their regime) for trying to go off the dollar. Can't say I disagree with the strategy, but I do wish they wouldn't lie to us about it. We're not idiots.
Syria though, is not Afghanistan or Libya. The two other major world players, the only major challenges to the US, Russia and China, are not going to sit by if we go into Syria (and it's too late to try and go the covert route like we did in Libya).
No doubt Iran is next.
Trouble is, Russia and China (and basically all of BRICS) is wanting to go off the dollar too, and those same strategies won't work here. If anything, THIS could lead to WWIII.
Too late to go covert? there are hundreds of "operatives" in Aleppo
The entire Syrian fiasco has been covert.
Assad learned from Libya, and this strategy has failed.
