Sarah Palin got it right on Syria
Everybody heaps scorn, contempt, and ridicule on Sarah Palin, only a tiny bit of it is deserved, mostly because of her oddball family. That said, when she said last week that the US had no business in Syria and that we should just let Allah sort it out, she was dead on the money.
There are no good guys in Syria only a secularist dictator who used Sarin gas to kill some citizens and the rebels who have pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda.
What's our play in Syria? Run Assad out and into exile in Russia or somewhere and install a US favored puppet regime? Or is it to endlessly fund, but not get involved in, the Assad resistance forces? Or is it to spend thousands of US lives and trillions of taxpayer dollars to essentially occupy Syria like we do Iraq and Afghanistan for the next 10-20 years, keeping the peace?
You don't have to like Sarah Palin, but you must agree that she's spot on with this assessment of Syria. Just let Allah sort it out and we'll deal with whatever is left standing.
