The US should intervene in Syria on behalf of jihadist war criminals?

A Syrian rebel has been caught on video apparently cutting a dead soldier’s heart from his body then taking a bite from it. “I swear to God we will eat your hearts and your livers, you soldiers of Bashar the dog,” says the rebel, identified by Human Rights Watch as noted rebel figure Abu Sakkar of Homs. HRW calls the act a war crime, and Syria’s leading opposition coalition has promised a trial, the BBC reports. “The mutilation of the bodies of enemies is a war crime. But the even more serious issue is the very rapid descent into sectarian rhetoric and violence,” an HRW rep tells Reuters.

Russia Today has blurry but very disturbing images of the heinous crime here. WARNING: They are horrible.

The US and our allies are considering stepping up support for the rebels. A serious question must be asked: Why?

I propose "Parking Lots For Peace", just about the same size, and just about the same shape as Afghanistan, Iran, and Syria. And Yemen.

Like that famous line about the Iran/Iraq war: if only they could both lose.

A bankrupt and weak Syria might be less of a threat to Israel. Or more of one...

Considering how quickly this administration loses interest the moment things get difficult - no.

Yes, tough decision. Do we support the Arabs who use the nerve gas or the Arabs who cut people's hearts out and eat them?

How bout "none of the Arabs above?"
