They are not making omelets in the Middle East, but just how do you unscramble an egg, metaphorically speaking when talking about Syria?
True, America isn't in the mix unless the president has his way, so the first thing would be not to add more eggs to the batter. But the head chef has decided that more eggs are necessary to accomplish this impossible task, what do you do?
That pretty much sums up the dilemma they face in Washington D.C. even though it's a personal crisis for the commander-in-chief. I mean really, one of the first rules of diplomacy is "never write checks with your mouth that your body can't cash." Red line indeed.
It was also Obama who called President Bush a criminal for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, so now he thinks it's just find to send America's brightest and bravest into harms way? Nobel Peace Prize indeed.
Don't forget about the murder of the Americans at Benghazi, who's calls for help were denied.
Is the American service member just a bunch of "good eggs" that can be sacrificed for the head chef's vanity? Understand first that there are no good guys in the Middle East, just bad or worse. Realize that all that hoopla over the "Arab Spring" can be compared to the "cat's meow" or the "real McCoy," just another catchy phrase.
It's a lot like the "Affordable Health Care Act" brought to you by the powers that want to be absolute!
