My Thoughts for the Day:
1. Syria - It is becoming increasingly clear that the Syrian rebels are dominated by Islamic forces. A report from Reuters today confirms that. Nevertheless, many in Congress are insistent on helping defeat Assad and are ignorning who will replace him. Would America have made a choice between Hitler and Mao? It actually did between Stalin and Hitler.
2. Trust in Media. A Majority of Americans don't trust the Media. That is a self inflicted wound. Yes they are biased. That bias was cited by Gallup as a possible reason - the failure to investigate Obama is likely a reason in my view.
