Syria/Israel border: “You have to choose your monster”

Katie HopkinsShillman Fellow

I'm standing at the border between Israel and Syria, and can hear Assad's war machine in the distance.

The last thing Israelis want is a massing of rebels and refugees coming over that border, and the forces of Iran encroaching their land.

We often hear that Syria's Assad is a monster, but knowing what we know and seeing what we've seen of ISIS, we have to face the fact that sometimes you have to choose your monster...

Good questions Ron. I have spoken to many millennial’s who aren’t even clued into those facts, and were surprised when I told them for example, that Justin sent Canadians over to Mali, and that the reason was to protect Muslims against Buddhists who are defending themselves and their land. Buddhists don’t strike first.

Post below should have read, I hope trump sticks to his recent promise of leaving the UN, not EU.

Liza Rosie…..Both of your posts are right on.

Now I hear Nigeria is killing innocent Christians. Why is Trudeau sending Troops to MALI instead of Nigeria? Why isn’t the UN in Nigeria? It seems that when Buddhists defend themselves and some Muslims get killed, the world wants revenge. When it is Christians, the UN doesn’t care.
I hope Trump sticks to his recent promise of getting out of the EU.

“Its a mess. Its the Middle East. Its been a mess for centuries.”
So lets import it to Canada and screw up that country as well.
Not very smart in my opinion, but we are ruled here in Canada, by IDIOTS.

It is so complicated(at least in my mind). Assad’s ‘war machine’ is defending Syrian Christians and other minorities from western backed rebels and Islamic extremists, but he has to stop playing with Iran. What is the solution? If Donald can find a way with North Korea, maybe he can come up with something other than bombing Assad’s ‘chemical’ supplies, which we all know are the ‘other’ sides.
If Assad is taken out, that Christian strong hold and the many minorities which are protected there, will be driven out or killed, and Syria will be taken over by Islamic extremist groups and that won’t be better for anybody( unless you’re Hillary or Obama)
Assad may be ruthless against the extremist Sunni tribes who are threatening him, but I can’t blame him for that.

Some Sunni tribes like al-Jughaifa fight against ISIS but ISIS considers non Sunni Muslims to be infidels and recruits fellow Sunnis for their soldiers. Its a mess. Its the Middle East. Its been a mess for centuries.

“Assad is the best Monster of the available monsters”. Katie, I agree with your assessment.
Putin has been saying this for years, however he never receives any credit.
Russia should be in the G-7 or abolish it.
