    US bombed Libya once a bunch of savages started killing each other, and I think this encouraged terrorists in Syria to attempt to do the same thing. from what I've read Syria has more freedoms then the average nation especially in that area, if they would be really suppressed, no uprising would have occured - I lived in USSR, the really suppressed nation like North Korea, there was no such thing as uprising. I'm not a fan of Syrian government because it's the same guy, the son of the leader before, but I'm not a fan of savages who toppled Gadaffi by any stretch either. what do the rest of you think?

    Syrian ambassadors and diplomats persona non grata...

    Syrian diplomats around the world expelled
    29 May12 — Governments around the world expelled Syrian ambassadors and diplomats Tuesday, an unusual, coordinated blow to Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime following a gruesome massacre that the United Nations said involved close-range shootings of scores of children and parents in their homes.

    Looks like if we invade Syria we'll have to fight Iran too which will bring the Russians into the mix...

    Why should I care? Qaddafi was a scumbag, who order the murders of innocent American civilians. Just because George Bush sucked his dick, doesn't change the established facts.

    In 2001, congress gave authority to the President to go after terrorists, no matter where they were. That's what this President had the balls to do.

    Syria is for Syrians. We have no business meddling in yet another Nation's Civil War. Period, end of story.

    I believe I have read the "people" in civil unrest in Syria are Taliban backed.
