Pres. Obama should copy Dictator Ronald Reagan on dealing with Syria

Set up a secret program sell a bunch of weapons to our enemy Iran without the public and congress knowing.

Then direct some of those funds and weapons to the rebels in Syria to fight Assad.

When you get caught, just pretend to play dumb like Dictator Ronald Reagan and said you don't know anything about it and put all the blame on Oliver North.

Obama did those things, it was called the "Fast and Furious" operation. Were you napping at the time?

Hmm... interesting breakdown. Okay, I'll bite. Tell me what Obama is doing differently today than what you're decrying from 30+ years ago? Secret movement of arms? Fast and Furious - check. Secretly arming foes of our foes? Obama authors measure to provide Israel with no less than 55 bunker-buster bombs without the Congress or public knowing - check. Obama draws red-line for movement or use of chemical weaponry and when caught, blames it all on the International community and Congress. Botched Benghazi? Man who produced a 15-minute video is imprisoned and Hillary resigns her post. Check-check-and checkmate.

Tell me why you're so consumed with 30 years ago? After all, the only hypocrisy you're going to find in all this is your own.

As you can see, I generally don't feed trolls, but I will rob them of their Coke and Snickers from time to time. You're right though, I should've at least closed with; "goodbye".

To the OP, since English is clearly not your mother tongue : A dictator is a ruler who does not rule through democratic means.

Yeah, but hyteckit is so rabidly left-wing that any Republican leader of the United States is an imperialist dictator.

You just have to put it in the context of crazy and it all makes sense.

hyteckit: what do you hope to accomplish with your approach, other than make people like me feel better when their posts don't go over very well that there are others with worse approaches?

I would like to see what would happen if we put you and BadKosh in the same room for a while.

I don't think he's coming back.

Just another drive-by...

Although you're right, besson - he does make me feel a lot better about myself.

Pres. Reagan is 'a' Republican leader. How do you interpret that to be 'any' Republican leader?

Like bypassing congress, illegal selling weapons to Iran, and secretly funding/arming rebels in Nicaraguan Contras without the knowledge congress or the public?

Doesn't seem to be ruling through democratic means.

Since you are afraid of Russia's response if US were to get involved in Syria, I thought you might appreciate this tactic.

Just deny all involvement with plausible deniability.
