    And? Most countries that existed prior to WW1 had tried to dominate the world at one stage.

    You mean like a weapons blockade of Gaza to protect innocent Israelies that Turkey seems bent on challenging?

    Perhaps Israel should escort a weapons shipment to Syria. I bet they have some old stuff from Lebanon; they could trade that (and maybe some gas) for missing soldiers. This peace stuff is all about timing.

    Globally, many say the same of the US in recent history.
    I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.

    Well the US's aim in the Cold War was to influence the world against the USSR, so the argument could be made there that it was trying to dominate the world, ideologically rather than militarily though.

    Assad knows there will be no intervention like we saw in Libya. Sadly, the pro-democracy protestors are on their own.

    My thoughts and solidarity are with the Syrian people who are fighting for freedom, democracy and their human rights.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Lets build up weapons rather than debate because blowing people is always right.

    /sarcasm random bs.

    There is no wrong and right solution to either, but both sides haves the right to exist.
