We Need To Support Syria In Its War Against Terrorism

 I just got a phone call from James Lankford’s office about an email message I sent explaining that we should not support moderate rebels to fight ISIS, but rather the Syrian government who is fighting terrorists.  I’m not writing this to boast that I actually got a reply from these people who call themselves my government.  I’m writing this to protect myself, to set the record straight.  Because I disagree with them, they might label me a terrorist and I might disappear during the night. So before that ever might happen, I’m putting my newly won net neutrality into good use before they take that away.
If this young man who called me gave me his name, I can’t remember, I’m not very good at remembering names, I’m sorry.  I should have written it down.  But he was sure of himself, armed with well rehearsed propaganda about how Assad is a terrorist who would destroy Israel.

I’ll just get to the end of the conversation.  I was angry, but I kept my cool. I said, “you know, other countries called Bush a terrorist.”  He laughed, I didn’t know I told a joke, but he thought that was funny.  I explained that Bush was a democratically elected president.  I said that Assad is a democratically elected president and we should respect that just as we would expect other countries to respect our democratically elected president.  Terrorists aren’t elected, they try to take over a government with violence and that’s why we call them terrorists and we should not be supporting them.  I said that we need to just stay out of there all together and leave them alone or if we’re going to fight terrorists, then we need to support a democratically elected president who is currently fighting terrorism.  I told him I was sticking to that point of view and I’m not going to change it.  He thanked me, I thanked him and the call ended.

So that is that.  Blessed Be.
