Sarah Palin is Right about Syria

On Syria, Sarah Palin is right and Obama is wrong. Palin:
Let Allah sort it out.
Ok, so maybe there is sort of an anti-Muslim slur buried in there somewhere, but it is a useful reminder that the US has no inherent stake in a Sunni-Shi'ite civil war, and no particular reason to favor one side over the other.

While I'm on the subject, a rumor has been floating around that some elements in the US government want the Syrian civil war to go on indefinitely, on the theory that as long as Hezbollah and al Qaeda are fighting each other in Syria, they won't be making trouble anywhere else. I hope our president isn't that cynical.
