"McCain says we can identify the good guys in Syria — after he unwittingly meets with kidnappers"

Sorry, I forgot I was supposed to be a blogger and just commented for the last three hours.

Headline stolen from Allah. Says it all, really.

Here's a question: Many people have suggested that we just "let them fight each other until the maximum number of the jihadis (on either side) have killed each other."

Without endorsing that, and without questioning that: I'm wondering how the notion that Assad seems to now be winning this war, and, some thing, will win it within the next year or so, modifies the previous "do nothing" stance.

If we want them to keep fighting each other and Assad is slowly moving towards a win, does that mean we should step up support for the rebels in order to prolong the fighting?

I'm just asking. This is not a rhetorical question. It's a question-question.

It's one of those few times someone actually asks a straight question on the Internet.
