An enemy of an enemy is not a friend

Reader comment on item: Yes, Support the Syrian Rebels

Submitted by Doug Mayfield (United States), Dec 19, 2013 at 13:57

I respectfully disagree with your conclusion. There is no form of Islam which is anything but highly dangerous to all free countries, especially the United States.

With the current occupant of the White house embracing Islam, granting the vicious tyrants running Iran their every wish, and generally doing his best to trash US foreign policy and our military, anyone who is decent and supports America may be seeking some way to act on behalf of our country and our ideals of freedom and individual rights.

But the one thing that dedicated followers from all branches of Islam agree on is murdering and enslaving anyone who disagrees with them, particularly those who support freedom and individual rights.

If followers of Islam are killing each other, I suggest utter indifference to the outcome, since whichever side wins, they will inevitably hate us and strive to do us harm.

I reject your premises - but even if one accepts them, it's better off not to have either side triumphant.
