    Okay. How about the fact that you want the US to 'help the Syrians' whether they want it or not?

    Perhaps it would be a good idea in the future for CIA to train rebels in how to stage non-violent revolutions where both the middlegame and the endgame for the people is likely to be much more peaceful, and much more likely to end up in a functioning democracy with good leaders at the helm when the existing regime is toppled in the end.

    Much better and cheaper than training the rebels for war and arming them for the same, spending billions of dollars doing so.

    The Syrian rebels have asked for outside assistance at every stage during this war and have praised the airstrikes while saying that they haven't gone far enough or really done anything to remove Assad.

    e.g. last year
    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...-a7672321.html

    This year:

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...-a8304576.html

    [QUOTE]...But both rebels and opposition politicians say the Western allies should have also hit Mr Assad’s conventional weapons – which they say will now be used to target more people.

    “Maybe the regime will not use chemical weapons again, but it will not hesitate to use other weapons... such as barrel bombs,” said leader of the opposition Nasr al-Hariri on Twitter.

    Rebels said they were bracing themselves for revenge action in territory in the north-west of the country which a senior Iranian official had earlier indicated could be the next target, Reuters reported.

    “I am expecting an escalation by the regime against civilians in Idlib and in the areas of northern Syria and the liberated areas, because the regime always takes revenge on civilians,” one senior rebel in Hama province told the news agency.

    He added: “More was expected from the American strike to affect the path of the war and to curb Assad’s crimes.” [/QUOTE[

    He's already seen how well raising concerns in a serious, systematic way has worked out for him personally. Also noone would read a book with nothing but serious concerns given in a systematic way, even by an insider like him. Dick Clarke's book made that mistake.

    I disagree, Comey is so within the public zeitgeist that it would stuck.

    Nah in this media environment you need a terrible clickbaity argument to bring in the views for the serious point you want to make. Sort of like a loss leader.

    Like, every single genuinely left-of-centre journalist there is against this attack as far as I can tell. Much of that is partisan, but much of it is not (many of them were anti Iraq and Libya too). Even then there are writers like Larison etc. I can't scroll through my timeline for more than few seconds without coming across a journalists saying something opposed to the strikes.
    Is there even any support for the strikes ITT? I didn't think anyone had anything good to say about them until the backlash started.

    By September 11 of 2019, the middle east will be home to a lot of 18 year olds who have never known a life without war.

    Afghanistan isn't in the middle east.

    Hendrix has said it should be considered, that's about it.

    I'm generally an interventionist, but I really dislike small limited strikes in general.
