I just see no US strategic national security interests in being involved with Syria’s civil war and see many national security problems with arming AQ and Islamists. Assad has had those chemical weapons for decades and never has given them to terrorists to use against us or anyone else. If AQ and Islamists take over that country...all bets are off. They will have those weapons and all of the conventional weapons of a state! No thanks,

You think Assad is worse for us than the rebels?

Folks here are too young to recall when his daddy fostered Christian terrorists

Middle east defines nuance and murkiness

I say why interfere when your foes are fighting

Napoleon?

BTW....every time we help muzzies kill Christians..... the ingrates turn on us in time

Bosnia....Egypt.....Kosovo...

Hell, Assad is more believable than Obama, and the relaxed and sincere look in Asaad's eyes, makes him more trust-able than the Kenyan Turd that's defiling the Oval Office.
The ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF minions in the Fox News suckup and Kucinich tried their best to get Assad to accept their phony numbers and fraudulant accusations.
Assad was clear that the Muslim Rebels were responsible for the chemical attacks.
Obama's just looking for a way to hand over oilk revenues to the Muslim Brotherhood, and kill more Christians in the process.

I'm very disappointed in Fox News toating Obama's water.

We've got no business in Syria, and it's best that we stay out of it.
What are the National Security Interests of the United States in Syria ?
None; absolutely none!

You didn’t enjoy his sticking his thumb in zero’s eye from tim to time? Sorry, but I enjoyed it. I found it brilliant and hilarious, but I do not feel we have a dog in this hunt. Islamists killing each other is not something that we should interfere.

Even when lying, he spoke circles around Obama. Now Obama will order a strike over a personal insult.

Didn't the state Dept. Have him dead, Injured in another country hiding or missing a few months back? He interviewed in Syria looking perfectly fine. He may lie, but obviously our own Government does as well.

And Assad called the U.S. The greatest country in the world... I'd like to hear that a little more from our own president!

I agree, wardaddy

If Assad goes, the vacuum will be filled by militant lunatics, as was the case in Egypt. Besides, if we insert ourselves every time Muslims come to blows, we’ll never leave the Middle East.

(I do LOL at the ferret comments, though.....)

Of course he sounds reasoned and “sincere”..hes a sociopath...He has lied throughout. He didn’t bomb his own people? entire areas? anyone ( prior to the jhidas entering) that opposed him?

You are a pathetic broken record..Sociopath, sociopath, blah blah blah..

What is certain is that if Assad is overthrown, there will be mass slaughtering of Christians.

My only concern is that the Christians of Syria are somehow protected.

Assad does not target Christians for slaughter, but that doesn't matter to you I suppose?

I pray daily for protection of the Christians in Syria.

"Fox panel is quoting the “evidence” of assad lying through the whole interview!"

Really? I must've watched another interview. All I ever heard him say is he needed to see the evidence. Hearsay from the UN and obama administration's state run press is NOT "evidence." I know that may be disappointing to some here but "evidence" is rooted in truth. For example, he admits chemical weapons were used (a presumed fact). Where he disagrees is in who used them. You, the UN, nor obama have proof that Assad used them and when looking at his history as the leader of Syria he has NEVER used those weapons on his own people. Your position is "he has them so that means he used them." That's crap. We've had nukes longer than any other country and since WWII we've NEVER used them. Using your reasoning skills we have.

This is the United States of America and in this country Americans believe that people are innocent until proven guilty. Yes... Assad is guilty of a lot of things but I don't see or hear any evidence that proves, at this point, that Assad is guilty of using chemical weapons and as he said, when your military is advancing and winning why would you use chemical weapons? To me that's a good point
I tend to believe that al qaeda used them and is trying to frame the Assad regime and you have no evidence to prove otherwise.

You are spot on. The central issue is what should the US do in terms of policy. Getting rid of Assad may get us something far worse in terms of our national strategic interests. Carter greased the way to get rid of the Shah, which led to Khomeini. We are now still dealing with Iran, the biggest state sponsor of terrorism, and well on its way to becoming a nuclear power.

Iran and Russia are backing Assad and AQ is supporting the rebels. There are no good choices.

Obama has been a disaster in the region. He has distanced us from our relationship with Egypt, a long time ally who now is moving closer to Russia. Putin has become the power broker. Obama's failure to get a SOFA in Iraq has negated all of the blood and treasure the US invested in that country. Libya is in a state of anarchy and a safe harbor for AQ. We lack a coherent foreign policy for the region, which is a tinderbox.

I NEVER said we should go into syria, never said we should back the “rebels”! mRead my posts again...where did I ever say that?? right, nowhere. But some Freepers just make the illogical leap.

But I was responding to all the Kool-aid drinkers on Freep who said how ‘sincere, and reasoned” Assad sounded..Just because Assad is a demoagogic,Sociopathic monster does not then “equal” in logic that I want to back the “rebels” or go into syria.

Then by the same token, just because someone remarks how reasoned and sincere that Assad appeared, does not equal being a so called Koolaid drinker or approval of the man or that one thinks he is innocent of being a tyrant. My point remains the same. We have no business in Syria..not strategic or otherwise. I do not believe in humanitarian wars unless one of our allies is attacked or threatened. If folks want to take Iran out, then we should have that debate. We do not need to strategically throw Syria into Islamists rule in order to attack Iran’s nuclear assets.

Folks are sick to death of the whole Middle East! Screw em all! Drill here..drill now and let Allah sort it out over there.

Not sure how innocent he is but I don’t believe he ordered a chemical weapons attack. It could have been a rogue member of his own military(paid off by SA or our own CIA) or the Islamist terrorists. I do not trust Obama or anyone in his administration..or John McCain and others who want to use our military as mercenaries for Saudi Arabia and Qatar’s interests. I know that those people do not have the best interests of America at heart. Sad to say, but true.

Looks like you are a trained engineer who never took a logic course and when called it reacts with personal attacks way out in left field...kind of like the Libs do.

I comment on Assad being a sociopath and you infer that I meant we should arm the rebels???

and to your profoundly logical response “ you used the bong too much —— lol. “ I would respond with
“Guess you must have been a chemical engineer and sniffed too many chemicals...”
