War in Syria or Somewhere Else?

Well, do we go to war with Syria now or someone else? Let me tell you what I mean. If you look at the history of just about every country in the world it is outlined by whatever wars they were in. Most countries boundaries are set up based on whether they won or lost their last war. War is a fact of life. We are always going to have to be ready to fight.

Jesus even said that there will be “wars and rumors of war” throughout time. And these will even intensify as time goes on. We have to be ready. So I think we ought to have the best damn military on the planet, which we do.

But there are a lot of wars going on in the world right now. A lot of civil wars. We have to be wise in choosing which wars we are going to be a part of. This brings us to Syria. I have to be honest, I am not for getting in this one.

It’s funny, I have been asking people what this Syrian civil war is about. No one knows! I have to ask the question, have we as Americans forgotten our recent history with the Middle East? Think about this, when Iran was fighting Iraq, we choose to support Iraq. They were led by that young sterling guy, Saddam Hussein. We gave him guns and all kinds of support. Well that sure came back to bite us.

Then, when the Russians were battling in Afghanistan and causing all kinds of trouble. We supported those freedom fighters, young rebels, led by that little man – Osama bin Laden. We gave him guns and support. Well, that came back to bite us, too.

Who are we going to choose in Syria? Which side will we support? Will we go with Assad or the rebels. What is the whole thing about? What we know is that it is an in-country political battle. I have to say no right now. Let them do whatever they are going to do. I don’t understand the big issue over chemical weapons since Assad’s army had already killed over 100,000 people. But remember, it is a civil war. Since Assad has the military it does give him a slight advantage. All we can do is make the rebels a little tougher. I say, no.

Here’s what I would do. Go ahead and get ready in the gulf with our Navy. And remember that our best friend in the Middle East is not Muslim, they are Jewish. The nation is Israel. The biggest risk is that what is happening in Syria will spill over into Israel. We need to be ready to fight with them and protect them. They are our best friends.

So for now, I say no to Syria.
