Dreadful idea.

Wagging the dog or a deliberate action for disaster.

Hmmm, I don’t see the conflict increasing. It seems like Assad is winning with Iranian shock-troops and Hezbollah thugs. The rebels are also now fighting amongst themselves. My prediction is Assad remains in power, with a much smaller population to control.
Sure, we’ll probably try him for war crimes in absentia, but that’s just a formality. Omar Al Bashir uses such conviction notices for his litter box.

Assad appears to be winning over the looting banksters.

The King of Jordan has been a good friend to America. Hopefully this conflict doesn’t destabilize him.

The regimen thus far in the obama administration has been to do the exact opposite of what every previous US leader would have done..

Destabilization seems to be the goal on every front.

Come 2016 it will be way too dangerous a situation to be removing and replacing the POTUS. EVERYTHING that man does is for a self promoting political reason.

I predict a full regional war with Israel sometime in 2014. We’ll (US) be involved in a limited capacity but Israel will have to go full bore as hasn’t been seen since ‘73.

Dreadful idea.

It is dreadful, and very provoking to Russia. It comes just after the demand that Russia not send missiles to Syria, because that would endanger the security of the region.

Looks like the Saudi Army stationed in Jordan is getting some more air cap.

Don't be negative! The missilles might fall into the wrong hands, and come flying right back at you.

I misunderstood. I thought it was some sort of trade.

The rebels in Libya were starting to lose ground against Gaddafi. Then NATO stepped in. Of course in Libya the primary goal was to turn the oil back on but still a comparison can be made.

As Obama is one of the primary stirrers of the pot of Jihad, removal of him is a matter of survival.

Do not forget that southern Jordan is a US Economic Zone with the same status of Guam. We own it. It is our primary landing pad for the Middle East and critical to the US war effort. Without it, we would have not been able to fuel and supply the Iraq war. We have built whole cities and super freeways down there.

This drill will be conducted in two weeks. The same time as the Iranian election which might well have protests put down very violently as in 2009.
