this is probably a good enough reason why the US/UK shouldnt arm Syrian rebels

    the US/UK should be familiar with putting their foot into a quagmire only to have it blown off

    The only reason the US keeps intervening in the middle east is to maintain instability. Stable regions become economic powerhouses, and a unified Middle East region would control a LOT of strategic resources with a LOT of bargaining power. Politicians don't give a single round **** about doing the right thing, only the strategically advantageous thing. At least this time it didn't involve Americans dying to get it done.

    For the longest time I kept reading the first part as "to maintain stability" and it made me really angry, but now I see that obviously wasn't the case.

    All war is imperialism, all imperialism is for resources, all resource wars are to gain profit or additional control for the acting regime.

    These so called 'rebels' really are disgusting. Thankfully Syrian government forces are driving the rats out with victories all over the country.

    However it does make you marvel at the hypocrisy of the imperialists, for years they tell you how evil these Islamic fundamentalists are, and then all of a sudden they are on our side and they become 'freedom fighters' who we must support and arm.
