So the miltary complex warmongers still want another regime change and to turn Syria into the next Iraq / Libya because the current chaos in those countries is just soo much better than what they had before. Hopefully Russia will stand firm on this.

More chaos then the current POTUS wannabe has unleashed ?

The Russians saw how easily the American goobers were emotionally-manipulated into the Bush Wars, and just did it, too. They inflicted Trump on us.

Now, our play-acting "president" has NO CLUE what he is doing.

Will it be Korea? Syria? Where else?

Will it be Korea? Syria? Where else?

The easiest way to find out would be to go ask who is next at the source.

Fox "news".

The US, instead of a secular leader wants to install some CIA developed monstrosity that creates chaos.

For once I'm with you.

When will the US learn that meddling in the middle east just creates new problems in the future?

The Middle East cannot be fixed from the outside. Same for North Korea for that matter. All we can do is work to contain them, and let them work out their own crap.

With the shortage in butter and now "potato chips" I would say Assad is rather insignificant. Let Assad push the terrorists out of Syria and give Japan butter and potato chips.

"Any attempt to unseat Assad faces huge hurdles and risks unleashing chaos. It could also relieve the suffering of nearly 1 million Syrians living under constant siege and bombardment."

Relieve? Perpetuate,more likely.

Isn't it about time someone stood up to the U.S.A. and told them not to start any more wars?

There is too much pride and ego at play to learn lessons like that, Stranger. Trump explicitly sees situations such as this as a win/loss scenario, as does the US in a more general sense. When you are blinded by that, or I guess just as dangerously, when you are committed to that as an outcome, you aren't interested in learning lessons. Because, you don't expect to, or want to, be taught lessons by others. Especially when the great rival, Russia, is involved.
