Mike Rogers wants to invade Syria next
Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Mike Rogers (R) Michigan, thinks it's time for the US to sacrifice more billions in treasure and thousands of lives in yet another middle-east hell-hole. This time, it's Syria.
Rogers lectured the pinheads on CBS This Morning, "The U.S. knows there has been some forensic evidence that at least small quantities" of chemical weapons may have been used. Rogers also says the United States has "lost the faith" of the opposition forces, adding, "This is the time to act. Don't wait until we have 5,000 dead."
Not only do we not need to invade Syria, we need to pull completely out of Iraq and Afghanistan. That part of the world is a lost cause. Regardless of which blood-thirsty dictator terrorizes those cat-boxes of sand, they'll continue to sell their oil on the international markets as always. 10 years in Iraq and Afghanistan and nothing has been accomplished.....if that's not the definition of a military quagmire I don't know what is.
Rogers thinks we've "lost the faith"? We never had the faith of the middle east. What bizarro world does he live in? Why do we, the US, have to solve every third-world catastrophe that comes along, for humanitarian reasons?
