COMMENT: We are certainly not in possession of definitive information about the chemical weapons attack in Syria. The Syrian government has countered claims that they launched the attack with claims that it was the rebels or allied forces.
As grotesque as Assad is, he may well be the lesser of the evils in the Syrian imbroglio, which one might compare to a quicksand bog located downstream from a slaughterhouse draining to the waterway.
Life is not a Holywood movie, with positive endings to scripts inserted at will. Often, there are no good options, only bad ones. We feel that Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Egypt all fall into that category. Nonetheless, there are some options that are worse than others.
For example, we support the Egyptian army in their takeover in Egypt, although we feel that it is unlikely that real democracy will stem from a military takeover. Generally speaking (pun intended), that does not take place. Nonetheless, the majority of Egyptians backed removal of the Muslim Brotherhood’s fascist regime, and the army alone had the power to implement that political will.
We do not feel that this country should engage in military action in Syria. The Syrian rebels appear to be largely Al Qaeda/Taliban knock-offs, with direct, demonstrable ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, and through the Brotherhood, to the Underground Reich. 
Exactly who DID use the chemical weapons? We don’t know, however Muslim Brotherhood-related terrorists have been seeking chemical weapons for years. Who knows if they may have succeeded? Might they have gotten some of Saddam Hussein’s old CBW toys after the U.S. failed to secure those capabilities after the extremely ill-advised foray into Iraq?
It is also interesting that the tide of battle had begun to turn against the rebels, with the entry into the war by the well-armed and battle-tested Hezbollah cadre. Would Assad have been stupid enough to do the one thing that could reliably have been counted on to draw the U.S. into the conflict? We don’t know, but we are skeptical.
In short, is this a provocation? Might the rebels have actually used sarin ?
Among the reasons why we view this affair with the most jaundiced of eyes concerns the fact that none other than Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia  is the single most important coordinator of aid to the rebels.
- He is nicknamed “Bandar Bush,” because he is so close to the Bush family . Bandar Bush was also deeply involved in the push for the invasion of Iraq, which is a damned poor recommendation for taking military action in Syria. (See text excerpts below.)
- Bandar Bush been involved in some of the dirtiest operations  of the last quarter century, including the Iran-Contra affair and 9/11. (See text excerpts below.)
- Like the rest of the Saudi establishment, he hates Obama and the Democrats and would love to see the Saudi-friendly GOP and Bush family back in the saddle.
Obama would be playing into their hands and further alienating the liberal wing of the Democratic Party by getting involved in the Syrian horror show.
EXCERPT: He has been gone from the capital for eight years, but Prince Bandar bin Sultan, who as Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to Washington wielded influence over no fewer than five different US presidents, has re-emerged as a pivotal figure in the struggle by America and its allies to tilt the battlefield balance against the regime in Syria.
Appointed by the Saudi king, his uncle, last year as the head of the Saudi General Intelligence Agency, Prince Bandar has reportedly for months been focused exclusively on garnering international support, including arms and training, for Syrian rebel factions in pursuit of the eventual toppling of President Bashar al-Assad.
It is a long-term Saudi goal, that in the past several days has been subsumed by the more immediate crisis over the purported use of chemical weapons by Damascus, which, according to Riyadh, must be met by a stern response. That message is being delivered to President Barack Obama by the current Saudi Ambassador in Washington, Adel al-Jubeir, who is a Bandar protégé.
It was Prince Bandar’s intelligence agency that first alerted Western allies to the alleged use of sarin gas by the Syrian regime in February. . . .
. . . . As ambassador, Prince Bandar left an imprint that still has not quite faded. His voice was one of the loudest urging the United States to invade Iraq in 2003. In the 1980s, Prince Bandar became mired in the Iran-Contra scandal in Nicaragua. . . .
EXCERPT: . . . . Bandar has formed close relationships with several American presidents, notably George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, the latter giving him the affectionate and controversial nickname “Bandar Bush” His particularly close relationship with the Bush family was highlighted in Michael Moore’s documentary Fahrenheit 9/11. He was reportedly so close to George H. W. Bush that he was often described as a member of the former president’s family. He advocated Saddam Hussein’s overthrow in Iraq in March 2003. He encouraged military action against Iraq and supported Dick Cheney’s agenda for “The New Middle East”, which called for pro-democracy programs in both Syria and Iran. . . .
EXCERPT: . . . A Saudi named Omar al-Bayoumi housed and opened bank accounts for two of the 9/11 hijackers. About two weeks after the assistance began, al-Bayoumi’s wife began receiving monthly payments totaling tens of thousands of dollars from Princess Haifa bint Faisal, the wife of Saudi ambassador and Bush family confidant, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, through a Riggs bank account.  (Jonathan Bush, uncle of President George W. Bush, was an executive at Riggs Bank during this period.) . . .
