I was reading an article this evening from the New York Times that I found amusing. Basically what the article was about was that they are saying if the U.S. and our Allies will initiate a ground game in Syria that they would then join in. How kind of them, I don’t blame them for asking, our government has done ignorant things before haven’t they? Folks don’t make any mistakes about any nation does concerning the situation inside of Syria. Life in that country will never be the same again for any whom have the physical scars and have buried loved ones in this war. Just seeing the physical scars of the land and the cities because of this civil war is very sad.
For those of us who pay attention to the real world we must understand that the Civil War that is going on right now in Syria and Iraq is a bloodletting of two sides of one faith killing each other. This to me is the equivalent of Catholics and Protestants killing each other because one side thinks the other one doesn’t worship the Lord Jesus exactly correctly. Russia has decided to back the smaller of the two sects, the Shiite led government of Syria and their friends in Iran. If we put our boots on the ground inside of Syria as in an invasion we would be doing the Saudi’s dirty work at the cost of our blood and gold. This helps keep them clean as far as their government wiping out hundreds of thousands of fellow Sunni believers, just blame it on the Americans. The issue is that these two sides of this religion tend to hate each other to the point of death and the best the western nations can hope to do is to contain it as best as possible to that region. It is a very sad reality that for the people of the Islam belt of this planet for the citizens to have any freedoms or any peace that they have to live in a country that is dominated by a Dictator.
