TomCat, surely you do not think that the U.S meddling in Syria (Iraq, LIbya, Ukraine, Afghanistan) is about nation building and peacemaking do you?

While it seems that there are conflicting power groups involved in U.S 'intervention' in Syria, overall U.S interests are served by chaos, destruction and instability. They do not need to win any wars to take benefit from their presence.

Andrew,

Just weeks before he got himself killed in Benghazi, Former Amb Stevens and I indirectly discussed this. He was one tall angry Liberal.

Yes, State considered 'nation building' to be their prime directive. "Bush did it;' 'So what if we funded the Muslim Brotherhood to overthrow Egypt and we overthrew Libya;' 'Democracies are peaceful;' 'Democracies do not support Terror;' 'It is good for business;' 'We are NOT doing anything in Syria.'

I met SOF on the way into Syria when I got home, And the ObamaNation was all over the news saying we were not in Syria until some SOF got killed IIRC.

In the minds of the Political Elite in D.C. they actually believe their 'friends' are the 'good actors' ...

Over the past few months Russia has made great progress in Syria, but the western media kept silent. But the western media is very quick to post questionable news that is blaming Russia for bombing civilians.
