Secretary of State John Kerry said at Wednesday’s hearing that Arab counties have offered to pay for the entirety of unseating President Bashar al-Assad if the United States took the lead militarily.

“With respect to Arab countries offering to bear costs and to assess, the answer is profoundly yes,” Kerry said. “They have. That offer is on the table.”

Asked by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) about how much those countries would contribute, Kerry said they have offered to pay for all of a full invasion.

“In fact, some of them have said that if the United States is prepared to go do the whole thing the way we’ve done it previously in other places, they’ll carry that cost,” Kerry said. “That’s how dedicated they are at this.

Obama’s boss won’t let him approve Keystone, so he had to make up some global warming bullshit as a diversion.

    Was there ever any doubt who Skeeter really worked for?

    What a deal, they put up the $$$ Americans die. Oil prices become higher until the cost of their war is recouped. In the end Americans die and pay for the war.

    Democrats have gotten the US involved in 97% of all world wars.

    “Full invasion”? Whoa! Where’d that slip o’the tongue from Kerry come from? Freudian slip? Hmmmmm………….

    So we’re mercenaries now.

    We are being played, folks. Saudi Arabia wants to pit their two biggest long-term enemies against each other, and the Republican and Democratic leadership of the United States of American cannot wait to accommodate them.

    At Zero Hedge, they asked they question “who benefits from a US war with Syria.” All signs point to the saudis.

    Saudi Arabia remains one of the very few countries in the world not to accept the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In response to the continuing criticism of its human rights record, the Saudi government points to the special Islamic character of the country, and asserts that this justifies a different social and political order.

    Under Saudi law, every adult female has to have a male relative as her “guardian”.[245] As a result, Human Rights Watch has described the legal position of Saudi women as like that of a minor, with little legal authority over their own lives, such as government authorities forcing women to obtain the legal permission of a male guardian in order to travel, study and work.[247] The guardian is legally entitled to make a number of critical decisions on a woman’s behalf.

    The primary source of law is the Islamic Sharia derived from the teachings of the Qu’ran and the Sunnah (the traditions of the Prophet).

      Women are not allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia, although it is often tolerated in rural areas.[22] Saudi Arabia has no written ban on women driving, but Saudi law requires citizens to use a locally issued license while in the country. Such licenses are not issued to women, thus making it effectively illegal for women to drive.[81] Furthermore, most Saudi scholars and religious authorities have declared women driving haram (forbidden).[82] Commonly given reasons for the prohibition on women driving include:[83][84]
      1.Driving a car involves uncovering the face.
      2.Driving a car may lead women to go out of the house more often.
      3.Driving a car may lead women to have interaction with non-mahram males, for example at traffic accidents.
      4.Women driving cars may lead to overcrowding the streets and many young men may be deprived of the opportunity to drive.
      5.Driving would be the first step in an erosion of traditional values, such as gender segregation

      I knew Saudi Arabia also had something positive.

    The good news is that our puppet masters the Saudis and Israelis will bear the brunt of the conflict.

    An anti-globalist conspiracy theory floating around is that the oil or gas pipeline from Mideast to Turkey and Europe is being blocked by Syria. Syria being an ally of Russia’s isn’t cooperating. So the global market powers need to be in the Removal Business in Syria.

    Since we buy their oil, then we are paying for this invasion.
    Or do I owe somebody an apology?

    As a Canuck, I really think the stall has more to do with Buffet owning the BNRR- got to keep the funds flowing! Payback time.
