Where have you lived in the Middle East?This is just a normal day in the Middle East.......and something we need to stay out of. Both sides in an Islamic War are guilty of war crimes. We shouldn't take sides. That is why we were attacked on 911.The ambassador had dinner with the Turkish envoy, but he was in town to dedicate the new joint venture in emergency services between Mass General and Benghazi Hospital the next morning.Assad had nothing to do with those problems, and starting a civil war can not possibly help those economic problems.Nope.. Severe drought settled on Syria in 2005. The farmers abandoned their farms and moved to the cities with high unemployment and the oil sector finally collapsed. Mehr Assad is in charge and he's as savage as his father Hayfez was. I am surprised you don't know anything about Syria or its history of sectarian strife and assassinations.Wrong.Six million Syrian refugees had already fled before the US got involved. Mehr Assad had dropped thousands of barrel bombs on civilians.
The US was ALWAYS involved and was responsible for STARTING the whole civil war in Syria.
It was Hillary's "Arab Spring" concept to wipe out all the legitimate governments in the Mideast, like Saddam, Qaddafi, Assad, Morsi, etc.
But the rebels suddenly had expensive weapons and new Toyota trucks.
Who was funding them?
Who was Ambassador Stevens meeting in Benghazi, and what was in the CIA annex warehouse there?
Assad arrested and tortured the schoolboys .. that's when all hell broke loose all over the Syria.
The annex was a communication operation to identify which tribes might support a return to the Idris constitution.
The only real ally we have in the ME is Israel.
