Yes, we lost the sense of priorities

Reader comment on item: Forget Syria, Target Iran

Submitted by JACQUES HADIDA (United States), Sep 11, 2013 at 16:52

It is sad indeed that most of the time, people tend to not understand what the priorities are. And we have the proof right here.

For some that priority is the credibility of the U.S. Truly, in light of the overall mess and potential mass danger, I will not pay too much attention to that.

Funnily, with the Syrian situation, it seems that the world has foirgotten about Iran. No wonder they are laughing in their beard seeing how America wastes its time.

Plus the fact that there is no assurance that Assad gave the order to use chemical warfare against his people. It will not surprise me if we soon find out it was the rebels, who cares which ones, but certainly those who want Assad out and eventually replace him. I mean the Brotherhood and Al Qaeda.

As for 'do nothing' if this is what is decided, then we let them kill each other without us being involved untill they really get tired and by themselves decide to stop. If we do that, then we can turn our energy in seriously scaring Iran so they stop their vision. But we know they wont stop. We saw that the sanctions did not prevent them from continuing. RAther than sending missiles in Syria, maybe threatening to send some on Iran amy make them wonder.

It is is time to get back our credibilty, now is the time to act and go for it
