A Simple Solution to the Syrian Dilemma

Finally a solution to the problem with Syria.

President Obama said that time is not of the essence. Last Saturday he told America, "It doesn't matter whether we attack them this week or this month."

Ok, if that's the case, why don't we just wait and let al Qaeda and Assad fight it out, and then attack whoever wins? Both parties in the Syrian civil war are American enemies.  

Then we can build bases in Syria that can be used in the attack on Iran (who has also crossed the red line). 

Or am I making this too simple?

BUT if we're going to do all this and get involved in a couple more land wars in the Middle East, I think that we need to eliminate the sequester and go back to full funding of the US Military. We also need to get all of the Up-Armor HUMVEEs and MRAPS out of Afghanistan instead of blowing them in place, as the US Army has suggested. And maybe we should consider re-starting the production lines on armored vehicles in the US again.

And lay down keels on new ships, and restart the F-22 Raptor production lines and buy more F-18's while the F-35 is being perfected. And stop paying out so much in vote-buying programs.

Or am I making this too simple?

If we are going to pay for another protracted Middle East war(s) and fund all of the fossil-fuel driven vehicle programs, the US is going to need to DRILL - baby - DRILL for oil and sell it on the market to pay for our wars instead of just borrowing it or printing money, the way we do now, since nobody will buy our worthless bonds.

Or am I making this too simple?

Maybe Barack needs to give his Nobel Peace Prize back.

Or am I making this too simple?

Senator Rand Paul has his say:

  1. What? If we go to war we need to pay soldiers? Buy weapons? Buy vehicles? Buy oil? Leftists never bother with such things.

    1. Just keep the presses running overtime.

  2. I don't see a solution in the military intervention. Even the UN doesn't allow any military intervention as a solution, then why? another other than saving the interest in oil and capturing the strategic location?

    1. I don't see a solution to anything in this either.
