Caught between a Rock and a Hard Place--Inaction is Best

Reader comment on item: US Confirms Chemical Weapons Used in Syria

Submitted by Michael Hanni Morcos (Canada), May 9, 2013 at 18:40

We seem to be caught between a rock and a hard place in Syria--Between Iran and the Sunnis---For a moment i wish President Bush or even better President Ronald Reagan were in charge --But it is Not the case---In the big Picture and from the track record of this Administration--they always took the Sunnie -[Hard Place] side and had disastrous Results like Benghazi. Libya episode -witch could result in an impeachment or a change of guard once the Facts are tabulated--like the Mubros in Egypt ,Tunisia, Yemen..etc. and obviously with the Saudis and Turkey --They failed pathethically in Irak vis a vis Iran[Rock]being in charge after all the Lives and mega-money sacrificed--How can we match the Russians and Saudis and Iranians in Armament without getting involved??We cannot...Let them fight it out for Now--WE Must learn from our recent past that Dealing with Islam is like getting caught between a Rock and a Hard place--- Thank You.
