Commentary on The Capital Markets- Category [Flash]

The US House has just voted on Obama's proposal to train and arm "moderate" Syrian rebels.

You know what the definition of a rebel is, right?  One who is attempting to overthrow by force of arms the sitting government.

So now, into the breach we go again, arming people trying to shoot political leaders.  For real, not at the ballot box.

And we'll double-pinky-swear that none of this will go into the hands of the same groups that are cutting off the heads of journalists or threatening to blow up dams near cities.

We swear and we can be trusted, because we never lie about things like that, just like we didn't in Benghazi.

Seriously.
