The United States of America will once again send the dogs of war into combat based on the assumption the way to win wars is to kill the enemy. It is a basic belief of the Obama administration that if one kills the top leaders of “terrorism” then the remainder of terrorists” give up the battle and return to peaceful pursuits in life. There is not a single example during the 20th century that once the bad leader is killed, then his followers end violence. Our drones continue to pick off that bad guy and this bad guy, but the battles go on and on and on. After American forces swept through Afghanistan in 2001 absolutely no effort was made to address issues of jobs and economic development and providing extensive medical aid to the population. Instead corrupt government arrived in villages and engaged in abuse of the population.
Frankly, it is too late and too little for the people of Afghanistan. They do not want drones in the sky, they simply want a better life for their families and villages. Tomorrow, another “bad guy” will have his life ended by a drone. But, the dogs of war will continue howling in anger. Sorry, Mr. President, death does not translate into peace.

I am glad to learn that John Boehner wants to join with the president and initiate bombing some place in the world. I assume if there is anyone in America who understands the process of bombing and war it is Mr. Boehner. This man is an expert in fighting for things that can never be attained. After all, he has led 37 campaigns to end the thing known as Obamacare and he is still determined to get rid of this horrible law that seeks to provide people with health insurance. So, who is better at leading the fight against Bashar al-Assad? John is a determined man and he will stay in the battle until he is completely defeated. Frankly, I am somewhat confused that John is against Bashar. Bashar is against ordinary people, Bashar is for the military and just about all of his friends are wealthy folk.
Upon reflection, the Tea Party would be more comfortable with a good solid man like Bashar than some black dude from Africa. How about the Republican party agreeing to aid President Assad in exchange for his support in defeating the Affordable Care Act. Bomb the White House and destroy the Number One tyrant in this world-Barack Obama and his Gestapo world of forced health care! Turn the missiles around and aim at the White House. John, please be our savior. Just remember, the 55th time voting against Obama care might be the winning number!

It is now quite clear that Something will be done about Syria. Ban Ki-moon, the UN Secretary General wants more inspection of Syria and has asked the US, the UK and other nations to hold off on any venture until things are checked out. Israel claims to have intercepted Syrian discussion of their chemical attacks, and Syria insists they do not speak in Hebrew so how can the Israelis claim to know what they say. UK Prime Minister David Cameron wants to get on with an attack, the sooner the better.Of couorse, President Obama wants to reflect on what he will do. There are reports a special task force in the CIA is preparing a twenty thousand page analysis of what would happen if US planes bombed Syria. We can assume the following will happen:
1. The US and its European allies will introduce a motion in the Security Council
2. Russia will insist that since black Americans and Hispanics are deprived of equal rights there is need to balance what is happening in Syria with what is happening in the US.
3. China will urge the need to discuss the problem.
4. Barack Obama will urge another review of the situation.
5. Someone in Virginia will send four drones to Syria.
6. The argument will shift from Syria to the Drone attacks.
Is everyone clear about Syria?
