The U.S. policy on aid to Syria is tilting dangerously in the direction of military support. There are many who believe that the situation in Syria should be treated similar to the regime overthrow in Libya. It has become increasingly normal to see media outlets using the ‘cookie cutter’ method in their analysis of countries within Northern Africa, the Middle East, and Southwest Asia.
“Oh, these countries contain Muslims and it’s hot there, they must be the same.”

HugeFan isaiahzb Didn't sound rhetorical to me at all. Sounded like a valid question.
@Surf375 Maybe but very risky.
@isaiahzb Except that they would be organic there, with resources necessary to sustain a strong state and no reverse aliyah (emigration, 'yeridah') phenomenon necessitating non-Jewish immigration (ie, Filipinos, Africans, etc.). Use the unrest in both Iraq and Syria to broker this and convince Turkey that a stopgap to jihadism is necessary, add some EU/NATO carrots for more enticing, I'm sure a deal can be cobbled. The Jewish experiment is failing (or will fail).
hell, sounds like the shit on your 214 would make you a perfect candidate for office these days.
@Surf375 Wow, that would be like Israel version 2.0. A country surrounded by countries that want the entire population euthanized.
