Muslim religious extremists are known to be part of the Syrian rebels. So why do we and the rest of the world continue to aid them? Recently, one of these rebels executed a captured Syrian soldier and cannibalized him. Another group executed a dozen or so captured Syrians. Add to that, this Benghazi debacle seems to have been about moving weapons to the Syrian jihadist extremists. It seems we are caught on the horns of a dilemma. We know Bashar Assad is a butcher and the rebels may not be much better. If so, why are we involved at all? There seems to be no good outcome for us in this matter.

Didn't liberals like Obama complain about Bush and his nation building? Isn't this the same?

No matter which side is supported it is the wrong side. You either support their current tyrant or else you support the rebels who have strong ties to a tyrannical organization. The question is which tyrant do we want.

Come liberals, if Bush was so wrong for nation building, why is Obama ok for doing the same thing?

It is really hard for foreign diplomats to see how much support we gave our own diplomats in Benghazi and now they expect more from this Administration for their countries. Stand in line as the President has promised a full accounting on Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS, the AP subpoenas and the list keeps on getting larger.

He promised the world to all our fellow citizens as he increased our national debt without a budget to be able to do that. He has increased entitlements to all the world with our immigration policies and especially enforcement out the window. The Boston Tea-Party or marathon are similar events but we are not the British and the guy that did those alleged acts should probably have not been in the country if the appropriate agencies had done their job. However, without a governing President and one that is always out telling the world how lousy we are, it is hard for the leaders to think of him as having real power even though he was sworn to defend our country.

It takes more than going on the Jay Leno and David Letterman show and playing street basketball to be President.
