As the situation in Syria is heating up, I grow more and more disappointed in this administration.
Their bungling of this crysis is an epic failure.  Obama is rattling sabers at people who have nothing to lose, no respect of human life, and are filled with seething hatred.   They are not people who are going to be intimidated by John Kerry shaking a finger at them.
Especially with Russia standing behind them.
Russia needs Syria.  Russia will defend Syria.  Because Russia wants their Port there.  Russia has a Naval Base there.
So why do we not let Russia handle this situation?  There is no need for us to meddle in these affairs.
What about the other Arab nations who are our allies?  We shouldnt have to get our hands dirty in this.  This is Syria’s civil war.  It’s horrible.  It’s disgusting.  And it’s none of our business.
Pushing War at this time in this area threatens us economically and Israel quite physically. 
So what should we do?
Nothing directly.   Have Lebanon and Turkey, or Russia handle this for us.  Incentives for them to take care of this.
Offer Russia Favored Nation Trade Status.   Offer Russia some business deals.  Build some factories in Russia… whatever they want that benefits both of us.  Everyone wants something.  And its usually money. 
Someone give Obama a copy of Game of Thrones.  Sheesh.
