No one is paying attention to real news

The civil war in Syria is a case of the bad guys, the Assad regime, versus the very, very worse guys, Al Qaeda affiliated jihadist radicals. The Obama administration, for reasons making sense only to them, wishes to intervene on the side of Al Qaeda. I have asked Obama supporters about the difference between the Al Qaeda their man is supporting in Syria and the Al Qaeda who brought down the Twin Towers. I still have yet to hear a real answer.

Now we are on the verge of yet another unjust war in the Middle East based on false pretenses. How many Americans are still ignorant of this because the major news outlets wasted airtime on Miley Cyrus wearing rubber underwear.
