I don’t know what to make of Syria, Bray.
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, shouldn’t we STOP dictators spraying chemical weapons on their own people? A well-placed bomb would put an end to that.
This administration has NO plan, no grand plan, for all these Middle East dictators.
I am heartened somewhat by the Turkey protests. THAT’S who we should be helping. Cause those protesting now are those who thought the new president would be a great guy except he’s just more of the same.
It’s the congress critters who should be holding Obama’s feet to the fire but McCain and Lindsay will always push for war anywhere for anything.
Same old, same old, no opposition party.
Above my Delaware column should anybody be interested.
Should these commies stop every dictator who uses WMD on thier own people? They said no in Iraq but now they want to in Syria, why?
Syria was stable until Obama stirred the pot.
We did that in Iraq.

Actually, Erdogan is not more of the same. He is trying to change Turkey into an Islamist state from a secular one. He is undermining the policies put in place by Ataturk, aka, Mustafa Kemal who founded the Turkish Republic in 1923.
In the years following 1926, Mustafa Kemal introduced a radical departure from previous reformations established by the Ottoman Empire. For the first time in history, Islamic law was separated from secular law, and restricted to matters of religion. Mustafa Kemal said
We must liberate our concepts of justice, our laws and our legal institutions from the bonds which, even though they are incompatible with the needs of our century, still hold a tight grip on us."
What we are seeing in Istanbul is a clash between Western oriented secularists versus Islamic fundamentalists. We should be supporting the demonstrators not Erdogan who wants to take Turkey backwards.
