    The president said strikes aimed at punishing the use of chemical weapons would hurt Assad's forces while other U.S. action would bolster his opponents - though the White House has insisted it is not seeking "regime change."
    "What we are envisioning is something limited. It is something proportional. It will degrade Assad's capabilities," Obama said. "At the same time we have a broader strategy that will allow us to upgrade the capabilities of the opposition."

    Translation: No one wants Assad out of power, they just want to put pressure on him.

    It's about pipelines.

    The doctor is so close to the truth right now that he is burning up, but he's not telling you about the other steps involved.

    Hold on. Have an open mind. He's not being broad enough but he's in the ballpark.

    Iran and total control of Eurasia. Those are where you pipelines from Russian to China will be located. Whoever wins that war will be master of the planet.
