Death in Syria

THE RECENT USE OF WMD's IN SYRIA BY PRESIDENT BASHAR AL-ASSAD HAS SHOCKED THE CIVILIZED WORLD.  I PERSONALLY WONDER IF THESE WEAPONS THAT WERE USED AGAINST CIVILIANS WERE MANUFACTURED IN SYRIA OR WERE SHIPPED IN BEFORE THE DOWNFALL OF SADDAM HUSSEIN IN IRAQ.  AFTER ALL THE LEADERS OF BOTH COUNTRIES BELONGED TO THE SAME POLITICAL PARTY (THE BA'ATH PARTY OR THE ARAB SOCIALIST PARTY).  YES, BOTH ASSAD AND HUSSEIN ARE SOCIALIST.  BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER.  IT DOES LEAD ONE TO WONDER IF THAT WAS THE REASON FOR OBAMA'S CONDEMNATION OF THE IRAQ WAR AND HIS RELUCTANCE SO FAR TO ENTER THE CONFLICT ON THE SIDE OF THE REBELS.  IT MAY BE TO LATE FOR THAT AT THIS POINT IN THAT THE REBELS HAVE BEEN INFILTRATED BY ISLAMIC RADICALS.  AT ANY RATE SOMETHING MUST BE DONE ABOUT THE ABOUT THE WMD's IN SYRIA, NOT ONLY TO PREVENT THEM FROM BEING USED AGAINST THE SYRIAN PEOPLE, BUT TO TO PREVENT THEM FROM FALLING INTO THE HANDS OF ISLAMIC EXTREMIST IN THE EVENT OF ASSAD'S OVERTHROW.  THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THESE WEAPONS HAVE TO GO EVEN IF THEIR DESTRUCTION CAUSES SOME COLLATERAL DAMAGE TO CIVILIANS WHO LIVE IN THE AREAS WHERE THEY ARE STORED.   CARTOON BY  GARY VARVEL

America needs to pack up and completely leave the middle east. That includes not giving them any more money too. Just let them kill each other. It would be a public service if the radicals all die.

Have a terrific day. ☺
