I agree with you that Jhihadi al quida are worse than Assad at this time.
Having said that Assad carries out proxy wars in the mideast and is a lying demagogue and monstor.

the real problem we have is not that we get ‘involved” overseas///but that we don’t have an objective for what WE want and then go for no-holds barred victory! Obama has made this even worse...we win Vietnam militarily, then Kerry sells us out for ‘peace”; we win in Iraq, and Obozo pulls out so we have no bases, no oil-zip; we go into Afghanistan and screw around with crazy ROE and that idiot
Karzai and now we leave.

I believe we should TAKE Suaudi Arabia militarily, control and TAKE the oil( that funds terrorists ), sell it to the Russians and chinese for 25 cents on the dollar, build up our economy, pay off the debt and build our Military and take care of our vets.

Have you ever heard of Mecca? What do you think the results of that might be?

He has rape rooms just like Saddam did. There isn’t much difference between Muslim dictators.

Assad is a bad guy, except when compared to his enemies. It is a Muslim nation, and they do not value human life. Nothing is going to change that.

Assad was astounded, and so was I, that the interviewers kept asking about democratic elections as if fighting terrorists has no impact on having an election.

In the history of the Muslim world, there hasn’t been a democratic or republican government since .......NEVER. It’s not going to happen now.

Last week I saw a split screen with Assad on the left and Kerry on the right... I swear it was Dracula and Frankenstein. I then pictured in my mind Obama as Jack Skelington from Nightmare Before Christmas. Maybe I am just too excited for Halloween.

Lady Vet out.

The longer I live, and the more I think about these things, the more I think that the the US needs to concentrate on maintaining and increasing its economic strength and ability to provide opportunities to its citizens. Our ability to help other nations, provide support to those in need, and intervene when it is necessary and the right thing to do is dependent on our strength as a nation. If we are struggling economically we will have a significantly diminished capacity to help others.

Point taken...Yet Saddam’s rape rooms are not why we went to war in Iraq, nor should it have been. I am no fan of Assad. There is just no US strategic reason to enter into a civil war in Syria and aid our true enemies...AQ and Islamists..who DID attack our country on 911and plot to do so again.

Yes, I have read that and find it very credible. I was glad to see that Rush brought up the FP article about Panetta and the missing Syrian WMD. I had been tweeting about that article for days, linking it in comment sections of news sites and sending it out to conservative pundits hoping someone would pick up on it! It was a hole in the Obama regime’s TP lies big enough to drive a semi truck through...lol.

Thanks for the ping! Isn’t it also interesting that just this week Obama figured he better waive the law against arming terror groups?! He of course has no constitutional authority to do this and if it is proven that he has been arming them all along...this is major impeachable stuff. Obama’s unlawful executive order will not mean a thing.

I agree that it IS an IMPEACHEABLE and TREASONIST OFFENSE.
But the RINOs are fighting the Conservatives, and the Devilcrats will NEVER for for it.
But still, it would be great to have that IMPEACHMENT VOTE on the record, and watch the Senate scramble for cover to justify their support for a TRAITOR and ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF !

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.

Very good overall posting.

Its about as useless to interview Assad as it is to interview Obama....the similarity between Assad and Oboz is just chilling.


Except O would never let direct questions like this, and followups occur.

The other observation I would make is that he ( Assad ) is very adept at not smirking. He makes Clinton and Obama look like amateurs in that regard.

P.S. Fox interviewer, please take off the glasses. The looking down your nose routine isn’t what very professional.

You were tough, but that part reminds me of an MSM interview

Told Obama to listen to his people. Listen to the common sense of your people. LOL


He’s a snake, but like the one in the garden of eden, knows how to manipulate

Assad demonstrates significant Western influence in his exacting grasp of the English language, attire, etc.


And the ability to shape the discussion on his desired outcome.

Appreciate your comment on readers.

My simple point is take them off when you are not reading.

Palcott was excellent in the interview.

By wearing them he just reminded me of several MSM interviewers or for example Carl Levin, Chuck Schumer.

P.S. I wear glasses , and am quite vintage myself.
