The Republicans should not think we are confused at all. We know the game. With less than seven days to what looks like a losing battle, desperate times call for desperate measures. And at this point, no propaganda in the world can turn the polls around. The credit crunch also continuously reminds Americans of what the Republicans have done to their country.
So what to do, how to go about salvaging themselves before the elections? What better to do than to attack a Middle Eastern country in the hope that they'll retaliate before Nov. 4th? And if there's anything that can make Americans nationalistic, conservative and most unwilling to vote a non-Caucasian man (with a middle name like Hussein, shock horror!) as their President, it would be an attack by Middle Eastern 'terrorists' in the midst of elections.
Can you think of any other reason why the US would attack Syria for the first time since the invasion of Iraq in 2003? Seriously, McCain, Bush and other Republicans, this one is below the belt.
But for now, since the US has not confirmed the attack, we'll give you the benefit of the doubt!
