How much longer are we going to ignore Syria and Assad ---- with all his murders etc. of innocent people?? Are we in the US going to stand by like we did in Iran a couple years ago...and waste an opportunity to get rid of one more tyrant??

What do you propose we should do? Invade or bomb yet another country that has not attacked us?

So what else is new? Did anyone expect anything different? In the Arab World, Democracy means, scapegoating retaliation, ethnic cleansing, Islamic dictatorship, supported by tyrannical Sharia Law.

He really isn't that wrong. With the limited exception of Israel - and then only as it applies to it's own citizens - the region isn't producing democratic societies regardless of whether people vote or not. Democracy is utterly incompatible with Arab National Socialism, monarchy and Islamist theocracy - the three dominant trends in the Arab world. In addition, from Iran to the Gulf states to the Sudan there is little to no tolerance of minority views whether political or religious.

U.S. technology helping Assad..

H-P Computers Underpin Syria Surveillance- Bloomberg

"Hewlett-Packard Co. (HPQ) equipment worth more than $500,000 has been installed in computer rooms in Syria, underpinning a surveillance system being built to monitor e-mails and Internet use, according to documents from the deal and a person familiar with the installation.

The gear made by Palo Alto, California-based Hewlett- Packard would run a Damascus monitoring center for Syrian agents to track citizens’ communications, and route data, according to blueprints and the person familiar with the system. The Italian company running the project, Area SpA, bought the equipment through resellers in Italy, according to the documents and the person familiar with the deal.

More than 3,500 people have died in Syria’s crackdown on protesters since March. At the same time, technicians from Area were installing and testing the surveillance system, which also includes data-storage equipment from Sunnyvale, California-based NetApp Inc. (NTAP), a Nov. 4 article by Bloomberg News showed..."

Here's what's really going on here: PNAC is steamrolling forward claiming U.S. hegemony in the region. China and Russia have had enough of it because they know that whoever exerts the greatest control and influence in the Middle East in the future controls the earth's most sought-after resource and destroys balance of power. So if civil war erupts in Syria, which is what the U.S. and Isrl are hoping for expect this to begin as a proxy war with the U.S. and Saudi Arabia arming one side and China and Russia arming the other. Oh and expect all attempts to sanction Syria to be veto'd by China and Russia, expect no further sanctions against Iran, AND expect Nato to hold back, because if Nato should get involved....WAR will become a real threat.

Russia and China are threatened by the U.S. and Saudi Arabia cooperation in bringing down the Syrian regime which might then cause a domino effect with Iran and Lebanon leaving the U.S., Isrl and Saudi Arabia as the dominant forces in the region. If Russia and China have anything to do about this...that ain't gonna happen, and it'll rain in 'HAIL' first.

Not a bad analysis if applied 50 years ago. Maybe it's time for you to update your teleprompter with recent history to add some credibility to your agenda driven broadcasts.

In 1957 I was a member if the UN Peacekeeping Force assigned to the Beirut region. Christians and Muslims were waging a contest to see who could rule Lebanon and they were deadly serious in their intentions. It was the pre-Assad Senior days, and Syria was a monarchy, They were plotting to take over Lebanon after the religeous turmoil . We were in the middle of their 3-way conflict and I have the AK47 scar in my right leg as a souvenier of their intentions. Assad Senior took over the reins during the turmoil, Things settled down in Lebanon with the UN help and Syria deteriorated down to the present point..I don't believe that any type of mediation will stop the tyranny of Juniors plans to keep Syria as his playground. Force is all he knows and only force will oust him, His people deserve much better and are willing now to fight for it. And DIE for it, as many are doing. For anyone curious enough to read about why I was there, go to Operation Bluebat on your search bars. . It's an unknown tidbit of US military history, but a thumbnail sketch of the tribulations that plagued the area, with Syria always stirring the pot. I was there for the handoff to the US forces from the UN and stayed for 6 crappy more months. I recieved a medical discharge because of the damage to my hip and leg from my unknown Syrian sniper

Very interesting indeed with the exception that he should have gone further and brought China and Russia's stake in this into the mix; because they are demonstrating they have a major problem with U.S. meddling in Syria and their role will end up becoming much more significant than it appears to be at present.

But in general, he's right. Once again the U.S. is collaborating with elements who will turn on it in future, is playing with fire and creating a situation which will have disastrous consequences.

"Loud explosions rocked the Syrian capital Sunday, and activists said it was a rare attack on a government building..."

Hold the presses! You mean these protesters aren't "peaceful" after all?

Since when were they peaceful? Only in the Western-led mirage press. This started out as a revolution in a teapot that was cranked up by Saudi Arabia and the U.S. with Isrl jumping for joy.

Now it's going to become a manufactured civil war where Syrians will pay a heavy price for U.S. hegemony according to Pnac.

They were until they were pushed too far. Seeing 3000+ of your friends and family members killed will have that effect.

Is Assad really in charge? Was at one time considered a moderate/reformist. Makes one wonder if he is merely a tool of the military and whatever religious or political faction they follow. Possibly, Iran/Hezbolla/Hamas.

Syria is starting to crumble. Never thought I'd live to see the day. Now, after Assad gets his spider hole / drainage ditch, let's see who takes over and whether or not they eschew the yoke of Persian terrorism and Russian insanity, and rebuild both their own nation and help their neighbors in Lebanon finally get back on their feet. Should Hezbollah be cleansed from that whole area, and only then, will they have a chance, if not, they're going to wish they never got rid of Bashar.

NATO can forget about using humanitarian concerns as a guise to attack Syria. Russia and China will not allow it.

What we have in Syria is a civil war backed by the US-UK-Israel axis and our western media are lying to us as though they are singing from the same hymn sheet prepared by the State Department.

It makes me laugh when I read comments here comparing this Syrian situation to Libya. Staggering delusion and wishful thinking.

The uprising in Libya was met with zeero resistance from the majority of Libyans. That won't be the case in Syria.
