Secretary Hillary Clinton is pressing the security forces protecting Assad to mount a coup against Assad himself. This is a sign of desperation that diplomacy is running out of options.
Credit her for her resolve to see Assad ousted even though the diplomats surrounding her are still holding on to the belief that if they cannot find a solution, maybe “Begging” will work.
Honestly, begging tyranny!! If the US is not bowing to tyranny, it is begging it. Can the great US stoop any lower?
I do not know who the Near East advisors to Secretary Clinton are but knowing she is tougher than she looks, Secretary Clinton is in dire need for her Margaret Thatcher moment today. She needs to stand-up to her advisors and to stop listening to John Kerry first before losing her prestige to begging tyrants. She needs to relinquish diplomacy in favor of the military to save her legacy. In fact, she is on course for another “Assad is a Reformer” tragic act. That’s my advice for her.
You want Assad to fall? Order the CIA to divert some of its Pakistani or Afghani Drones to strike a missile or two on the Assad’s Palace overlooking Damascus and some of his weapon depots.
And start arming Syrians to free the country.
Nothing like the smell of gun powder to release the grey matter to your brain.
