Syrian intervention not needed

People need to go to Wikipedia and review the history of this Syrian civil war that we have been propagandized into by the media with heartbreaking photos of dying babies.

We do not have any idea who did this, and even if we did, it is something that more intervention does not help. The “rebels” are no longer the idealists who protested Assad years go. They are primarily local tribes with strong Islamist orientation.

We have our own oil. Israel is quite capable of defending itself. Jordan and the Saudis will cope. Turkey will do what Turkey does. The Russians got kicked out of Afghanistan and there is nothing to say Iran will not turn on them if they try to become a power in the Middle East.
