You know what really sucks for the Syrian people? This crisis erupted during an election year. If this was August 2013 instead of August 2012, the response from the United States might be far different.

Much as I detest them in principle, surely one or two high-altitude drones could "go rogue" and end this horrific madness.

Simple equation folks. China and Russia don't want the Western world even thinking about sending relief to protect the Syrian populace, men, women and children. They're honoring the sovereignty of their client state over any atrocities they wish to commit. Obama must be cautious because we're talking super power confrontation here and no one wants to blink. Syria, unfortunately is on it's own. That's the nature of geopolitics.

All empires without exception fall eventually. It is natural. Surely you do not think America the exception to the rule?

A struggle is going on between the military industry and the oil industry. As there is not so much oil in Syria, the oil industry is not not interested in America transfer tax money from the 99 % to the military industry. Money of which they will receive a major part if it is not used to for a new war. However, the military industry is always interested in a new war. Both have though full support from the American people, they happily sacrifice their youth as cannon fooder for the benefit of the owners and executives of the military industry, as they happily sacrifice the future of their offspring for the benefit of the owners and executives of the oil industry while destroying the earth.

You did not mention the Syrian people, or their wishes, desires, or frustrations in seeking a more representative form of government for themselves. Not once did you mention them. Surely you cannot be so filled with conspiratorial fantasies to see that they have some issue in their own civil war.

Secular humanist??? Secular idiot is more like it. Assad has killed at least 18,000 of his own people (he is approaching the number his father and uncle killed in Hama in 1982) and yet you criticize the US for sacrificing its youth as cannon fodder (not fooder)???

And America didn't care then either. Probably because the lack of oil in Syria.
04:49 AM on 08/24/2012
What the hell/// 18,000 where did you come up with this number ?
U are an idiot, you dont have the correct information concerning this issue.. so maybe you should quiet the frock down.. 18,000

We are all going to die sometime.

Assad is choosing the course of his life and death, which is more than many people do.

Civil war, brother killing brother. How very sad. However, it is war, and war is about death and killing other people. All governments seek to establish peace by whatever means necessary.

America would be well advised to cut off aid to the rebels and to stay out of the decay of Syria. I say this as an Israeli watching events across the border. As bad, nasty and repressive as the Assad regime has been, it's "the devil you know." The average Syrian could get an education, make a living, care for a family, and live a relatively decent life under the Assads IF he or she kept opinions quiet and stayed off the regime's radar; the tortures and killings and massacres only began with the rebellion...and who would have expected any different from a threatened Mafia-style leadership? While I have no love for the Assad government, I fear for the average Syrian and for the region if Islamists take power...particularly for women, gays and lesbians, Christians, Kurds, freethinkers, and others.

France, the Netherlands and Spain intervened in the Revolutionary War on the side of America. Had they not America may not have ever been wrested from the British Empire. Sometimes intervention has good outcomes. Last I checked none of us can predict the future with any certainty.

Now you can come back and tell me of all the times that meddling has resulted in bad outcomes. And then I shall say that America cannot afford to wall itself off and become an isolationist nation. That was tried and failed miserably. The trick is to do things carefully slowly hesitantly and as a last resort. The trick is to pick your battles wisely - and not try and remake the world all at once. Goodnight.
04:36 AM on 08/24/2012
Actually, I agree with you. It's just that America is currently overstretched and needs to get its bearings once more. Isolationism is NOT the way forward; it's diplomacy, serving as a moral compass (and behaving as one), and collaboration with other nations of good will as appropriate. Carefully and mindfully...that's the right way.
