"Friends of Syria"

A bunch of countries, the US among them, have representatives in Qatar to decide how much aid to give to the rebels.  This baffles me.  I know that they're using chemical weapons as the fig leaf to rationalize the intervention, even though reports of chemical weapons use seem to be equally leveled against both sides.  Not to mention that the rebels aren't a peach, they're frequently crazy religious fundie nutjobs of the sort we've seen take over other Middle Eastern countries . . . in part because they get funding from the US.

So, over in Syria we have two political groups, both detestable.  It is baffling to me why the US would involve itself in so ugly a conflict, support religious fundamentalists, once again.  Power makes people stupid, I think.
