    I`m generally not a fan of fast-talking videos. That said, he did accomplish his goal of leaving this viewer a little better informed about Syria, which isn`t bad for 5 minutes. So 3 stars.

    For the most part it was a good overview.

    Undoubtably he did not get the memo that Obama did not actually set the red line that Obama actually set.

    I was agreeing with him up until he said to support the UN refugee agency. Sorry, but the UNHRC is one of the most corrupt, bribed and overly burdened bureaucratic agencies in the world.

    There are better refugee organizations, send your money to them, it`ll actually help the refugees and not line the pockets of UN bureaucrats.

    I think we should just sit back and see how the civil war progresses. If one side seems to be gaining an advantage, we should secretly send the other side just enough military aid to keep them in the game and keep the war going indefinitely. As long as they`re killing each other, they aren`t killing us us.

    I vote to just tell them to sod off
    although the thought of a place a atom bomb within equal miles of both parties and say first one there gets it, is humerus in a vile and evil way, had no sleep so Im going all clockwork Orange

    Syria doesn`t have any significant oil to speak of.

    Instead of having all these convoluted reasons for why Obama wants to go into Syria like the petrol dollar, why don`t we go to the most simple reason? He`s a Progressive, look at the history of American Progressivism. Starting from T Roosevelt, to Woodrow Wilson, FDR, and then LBJ. (Truman is iffy, I actually wouldn`t call him a Progressive though). They were all warmongers. They all wanted to remake the world in our own image.

    After the Vietnam war, started by Progressive LBJ, Progressives became anti-war for a generation. With the exception of Kosovo, etc. However, now that we have a Progressive president, they are returning to their roots. It`s an imperialistic ideology. And I would without a doubt call neo-conservative an off-shoot of this dumb ideology.
