    In foreign policy speech, Romney will encourage military spending, Syria intervention - First Read

    So he wants to arm the Syrian rebels who have elements of al-Qaeda in their ranks to help them topple Assad, just like Obama helped the rebels with elements of al-Qaeda in their ranks to help them topple Gaddhafi in Libya. Yet this is somehow drawing a distinction between the two candidates? Forgive me for not seeing it. Oh, and how did that intervention in Libya turn out for us? How did arming the Mujahideen in the 80's turn out for us? So why in the world would we want to do the same thing in Syria? Also, I thought al-Qaeda was our enemy. So why would we want to help them in Syria?

    Mittens would be better off if he went back to not talking about foreign policy.

    Then again, CAIR doesn't have the fundraising and donation clout that AIPAC does.

    Syria intervention is the perfect catalyst to manipulate engagement from Iran to justify taking long sought out action against them.
