Why is it that did Assad use chemical weapons on his people gets most of the press. Will Obama do anything about it goes along with that. Seems most of the stories that we hear ... unless we do the research ourselves are about how bad Syria is. So Time runs a great story that balances things a bit. The brutal fighting of the rebels. Total disregard for life in this war. The truth of the rebels gets less play because our admin is already helping them. The Assad stories run because some want Obama to do more when some of us wish he would do less. The Assad stories run because Israel knows how to play the media. They are on Al-Qaeda's side on this one ... imagine that. Israel wants more Obama in this war ... we need less to no Obama in the war. But this is not an Obama thread ... it's a media thread and how they can manipulate. The people who run the media seem to think they can pick winners and losers. How did that turn out pre and post Iraq? We cannot tell the media what to write ... but we must stay on top of the complete story to pressure Obama and his admin to stay out of that mess ... a war that has no shining warrior saving the country. Both sides are savages ... the Syrian people of course suffer as the people are always the ones who suffer. IMO ... I hope Obama distances us from it all and we'll deal with how it works out after.
