Intervention in Syria is seeing a tarantula fighting a scorpion, and helping the scorpion.
I really can't think of a better metaphor.
There is absolutely nothing for the American people or those of the UK or France or NATO to gain from this tarpit. The official story is so painful I
feel my ears bleeding everytime I hear it now. We are to believe that this thing the CIA made up called "Al Qaeda" was responsible for the worst
attack on US soil since Pearl Harbor, but then the very people they pointed at and called our greatest unified enemies are now in dire need of our
help to overthrow their government so they can plunge their country into oblivion?
Setting aside that this is the most perfect example of Orwellian Double-think in recrent memory, and with it that we should help our "enemies" fight
our other "enemies", what is really going to be done here? We are to belive that a "Gulf-war 3.0 CNN special" series of airstrikes can quickly and
surgically remove the Syrian military's fighting ability? Did we not just witness a decade of wars (the LAST decade, no less) fought by some of the
best guerillas the world has ever known, many many years after the supposedly greatest military ever had flattened all of their production,
communications, and defensive assets? Did we forget we are talking about a part of the world that has more tunnels in it than swiss cheese, and that
the real assets are all hidden underground, and consist in mobility and stealth?
So we are to believe that we are to support an absurd goal to be realized by an absurd gameplan.
And on top of all of that, Even if the concept made sense and was achievable, we have Russia and Iran sternly saying "NO". What is out there that is
of such value that we would risk provoking one of our strongest opponents to give aid to our supposed enemies over?
Does this make anyone else's heads hurt?
The best I can do when I try to make sense of it is to suppose that they want to destabilize Syria to the greatest extent possible, even more so than
this massive civil war already has, so that Iran has one less friend to turn to when the crosshairs move one hair to the right and settle on them in
the following months or year.
Does anyone out there have a better idea of what the hell is going on than I do? If not to weaken Iran, then why?
