So what side is the US on?

Reader comment on item: Support Assad

If i take your reasoning down another notch, the US is busy supporting the weaker party in the israel-Muslim conflict by constantly inhibiting Israeli victories, and propping up such scoundrels as Arafat and Abbas. Please tell me I have it wrong. judging by Obama's performance in Israel, his goal is to keep two equally justified opponents at each other's jugular.

Now for Syria. Your reasoning is sound for the US. But for Israel it is much better if the islamists win. because their next target is not Israel. Its the Hashemite Kingdom. Once the Hashemites are out the door back to the Hijjazz (or more likely bludgeoned to death at high noon) Jordan becomes another Hamastan. Terrorists can be banished to hamastan, just as south Syrians are being banished to northern Jordan which is really all the same place. So the two state solution comes into being. East of the jordan is Hamastan, and west is Israel. As many Jews east of the Jordan as are Arabs west of the Jordan. Justice at last.
