Romney and Syria

Mr. Romney has called for arming the Syrian rebels outright.

This puts him on the side of Saudi Arabia, the forcing garden of fundamentalism.

It also creates a new "Afghanistan" as a battle ground for foreign jihadists right on the Mediterranean. I think what Romney - and his eminence grise.... or his Professor Snape, if you will - Mr. Netanyahu of Israel see in this conflict is the eventual creation of a Sunni Islam state in Syria which will an effective counter-balance against Hizbullah and Iranian influence.

Their entire plan is predicated upon keeping the new Syria in a state of unrest and political turmoil, which will lead to an eventual break-up into autonomous regions: Sunni Islamic, Shia Islamic, Alawi, Kurdish, Druze, and all the rest.

The price of this ghastly fairy tale is something I cannot bring myself to endorse.
