Assad as bad as he is portrayed is better than the alternative IMO.
What is it about nation sovereignty that America doesn't 'get'? We have a history of butting into other nations' business. What in the world is the United Nations for I wonder?
Early on in American history we learn that it was the idea of MANIFEST DESTINY that started it all...in the name of Christianity...spreading The Word.
IF Pres. Biden was smart he would leave well-enough alone in Syria. It was the administration of Obama/Biden that first got us involved in Syria. Sanctions didn't work. Our CIA tried and failed to unseat Assad. And then we got Trump who campaigned on getting us out of Syria. Instead He made matters worse. And now apparently We own Syria's oil...or so said Trump.
And on it goes. Will Biden finally extract us out of Syria?
I wouldn't bet on it.
Assad or The Alternative? Which? And WHO?
The day Obama set his line in the sand and then allowed the Syrians to cross it was the day the US ceased to have the power to command in the region , it was that defining moment that allowed the Russians to reappear and as they are now the major power in Syria .
In the last few days Iranian proxies have attacked the US forces in Iraq 2 - 3 times and Biden has done nothing
