Are you Syria?......er.....serious?

Syria, a land under siege.  On the one side we have Assad, a despot, dictator, tyrant.  On the other, the rebels who fight to remove him from power.  In the middle, innocent lives.  Lives being lost to gunfire, shelling, mortars, IED's.  And the world, well, it remained silent.....until the chemicals were used. Apparently, only when chemical weapons are used does anyone take an interest in the killing of civilians en masse......funny thing that, especially given the nations who supplied the damned things in the first place....Hello America, I'm talking to you.

Now enter Bryan "Lyin' Fissure" Fischer and his prognostication of how to deal with Assad.  I don't necessarily disagree with his solution so much as I find his sudden conversion from anti-drone strikes to supporter of drone strikes rather dubious, to say the least. Add to that the hubris and arrogance of Imperial entitlement in the tweet.  Fischer is playing both sides against the middle here and he knows it.  If the drones drop, he wins by proxy and many non-Christians are killed.  If the drones don't drop, he wins by proxy and Obama takes a hit.  Either way, he gets to make his "point".

end of line.......
