If some of the "regulars" recall I had posted a couple of blogs as to why did we get involved in Libya to begin with. The contrast between Libya and Syria when it comes down to innocent civilians being killed is close to the same level. The reality about Libya is that the real reason was the oil. The world did not hesitate to "help" when it came to stopping the bloodshed under the guise of what is right.. Syria can gas and kill over 100,000 civilians, displace over 2 million people but alas no oil, no help... The kicker is if you choose to read the article you can see what the help amounted to. The moral to the story is commitment and follow through. If you are going to start something you need to have an exit stratagy, an endstate, and a plan for sustainment. We never seem to get that one right...

Oil has always been the prime - albeit sometimes unspoken - driver of our "national interests" in the Middle East.

Another special news conference to discuss the downing of the jet in the Ukraine. Still alluding to it being Russia's fault. His key point this time was to make sure an international investigation was able to be conducted unabated in a "War Zone" in order was to "Find Out What ...
