    Ok excuse me. Its not a civl war yet.
    The uprising.
    The US should not get involved in other peoples uprisings.

    Its been going on for over a year now and the cowards at the UN refuse to pass a resolution condemning Assad.
    You obviously dont know how the UNSC works.

    This man is killing his own population including women and children.
    Yep... He is. Its terrible.

    He should be brought up on war crimes charges.
    I agree. But how? I say we let his own people deal with it. We are not the worlds police man.

    How is he any different than Slobodon Milosovic?
    Irrelevant

    Why was it necessary to intervine in Serbia but not in Syria? When this started Assads was attempting to quash an uprising now he is attempting to clense his country of sunni muslims. The world looks on while a tyrant commits genocide. This is not a civil war.
    Excuse me.. Uprising
    Why did Libya get the gold package while Egypt got the hush hush? Oh yea i forogt... Mubarak was our guy....

    Why doesn't McCain want to intervene in Africa? What are his 'special interests' in Syria?

    You're right.

    Which is why it would be nice if Europe showed some balls and moral courage every once in a while on the world stage.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    At a time when the last thing the republicans need is one more glaring reason why we should all be happy Obama won the last election, McCain steps up to the mound and delivers a slow, arching pitch to be delivered to the bleachers in far center field.

    Good lord John....why not just come out and tell people to vote democrat in the next election.

    Syria is a major strategic piece in the region. toppling that regime would severely curtail Iranian operations.

    Which is why they need to start building up their own military capabilities.

    Re: McCain calls for US-led airstrikes on Assad forces

    Does any think Johnny Quest McCain is just Huffing and a Puffing before Netanyahu speaks to Congress today? He has backed the Libyan play as well as that New Form of Democracy in Egypt.

    Wonder if anyone has checked on him medically lately. It is high time McCain was sent out to pasture. I think he may have alzheimers.(sp)
