Yes. Instead of sending US troops into Syria to safely nullify the WMD, the US leadership has decided to use their Sunni Islamic surrogates in Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The reason we could not use US troops is because our leadership is progressive and their core support would revolt. The other alternative of course was to not support the uprising in Syria just like the Obama administration did not support the uprising in Iran.

In the history of the world, this has never been done before. Use surrogates to invade and topple a regime that possesses WMD. Who thought such an idiotic plan would succeed ? And if this idiotic plan even succeeded, what was to become of the WMD ? Check the following links for answers to some of these questions and possibly more....

-——the US leadership has decided to use their Sunni Islamic surrogates -———

The assumption in this statement is the Arabs are acting as Obama directed. That is fallacious. They acted in their own interest knowing the dithering Obama was incapable of action.

Iran is and always has been a serious threat to them. Taking out Syria destroys a big increment of Iranian influence. What America wants or needs in the region is secondary to countering Iran. They are ascendent in a world where Europe is withering.
