G_d I hate the Obama administration. In response to Putin saying Russia has and will continue to support Bashar al-Assad, State Department spokesman, John Kirby, “cautioned that a military build-up will not aid a political solution”.
What political solution? There is no political solution being attempted. What about the U.S. military build-up?
What do I want? Just come out and say the truth. That the U.S. is using ISIS to overthrow Assad and Russia is foiling this effort. By being evasive it has given Putin the moral standing as fighting against ISIS terrorism.
Obama had figured Erdogan would take over Syria. And maybe they still think so. That is why the U.S. is ok with Turkey attacking the Kurds; the Kurds could make that more difficult. I think Obama and his thinkers were going to give Iraq to Iran and Syria to Turkey. And maybe they still think so.
Replacing one dictator with another. It is just I think Obama views Arabs as the niggers and Turks and Persians and their future masters.
