What an outrage. The WSJ just reported that Obama is close to authorizing the American military to train 'moderate' rebel factions. Even at this incredibly late juncture. I can't make up my mind whether it's more incompetent or immoral. At least the WSJ posters are ripping him to shreds for it. http://online.wsj.com/news/articles...780320.html&fpid=2,7,121,122,201,401,641,1009 The pathetic thing is that this training will get the US blamed for its involvement in the war, and yet it won't accomplish anything meaningful in terms of turning the tide against Assad. So not only do we look like scumbags, we will be incompetent scumbags. The only purpose of doing this seems to be to get Saudi Arabia off our back and show some support for their mad-dog hostility towards Assad, as a symbolic gesture. Even if everybody else despises it.
