    Syria is for Syrians. Let them sort out their own problems. With Egypt & Libya turning to the Radicals, we don't need anymore Blowback. Lets mind our own business for once.

    maybe that's what Obama was telling Russia about after the election. Maybe he'll send in seal team 6 to free....oh wait, we'd just want all the Syrian Oil!

    Tell that to the Russians.
    "Blowback" is such bullshit.


    Another example of Obama's foreign policy failures. Wasn't he hitting the "reset" button on relations with the Russians? We see the result of that, and him selling out the Poles and Czechs early in his administation.

    Clinton slams Russia, China over Syria
    July 6th, 2012 - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lambasted Russia and China on Friday for blocking efforts to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whose much-reviled regime has endured a serious crack in its armor - the defection of a key member of its inner circle.

    Clinton: With more defections, Syrian regime's 'days are numbered'
    July 8th, 2012 - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday that "the days are numbered" for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime.
    Analysis: Syria options dwindling
    July 7th, 2012 - When the Friends of Syria group began meeting this year, first in Tunis and again in Istanbul, there was a sense of possibility. Perhaps the group would endorse military action against Syria. Maybe they would recognize the Syrian National Council as the legitimate opposition group.

    Can anyone clue me in as to what is at stake here? I mean in real words--not political shit. Who wants what and why? The UN doesn't act just out of concern for lives.
