Tyler pointed out yesterday and today that the risk of a Syrian war is quickly rising.
I want to amplify on three aspects of this issue:
(1) a war against Syria was planned 10 years ago
(2) the American people don't want a new war and
(3) Russia and China may strongly react against such a war
THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DON’T WAR WAR … BUT A SYRIAN WAR WAS PLANNED 10 YEARS AGO
I noted in August:
Just 12% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the United States should get more directly involved in the Syrian crisis, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Sixty-six percent (66%) think the United States should leave the Syrian situation alone.
ARE WE PICKING A FIGHT WITH CHINA AND RUSSIA?
Relations between the U.S. and Russia have degraded recently. See this and this. This is largely due to the U.S. threatening war against any nation which becomes an economic rival.
May cooler heads prevail.
