    The Libyan intervention worked, because the rebels were relatively well-organized and the terrain that allowed easy coordination of air strikes with coalition forces. Syria's opposition is mostly made up of disorganized protesters and scattered pockets of armed resistance. The terrain is also very mountainous. At least at this stage armed intervention will not do much of anything.

    Putting all your normal american dem vs gop crap to one side this is a terrrible situation. Syrian army seem to be shelling random tagerts similar to Sarajevo and many civillians are being hunted down, watched a video of a man running under the cover of darkness to bury his own child and night was the only time he could do it without being at risk from shelling or snipers. WTF is the UN playing at? We say always say never again but yet here we are again.

    Trade between any two countries is something that even two enemies would do. Russia has pipelines all over the world, from Western Europe to the Korean peninsula. Who the **** is their banker?
    If anybody knows **** about Cold War history, they'll know that even before the split, Chinese and Soviet relations were very chilly

    Bullcrap! The man who controls the valves on the pipelines has the power. Russia is selling resources to China and good business says to be nice to China, Russia has the control. Meaning that no Country is going to tell them what to do. The USA is still mad at Putin for snatching control of Russia's OIL resources from the tentacles of Exxon/Mobil, JPMorgan and David Rockefeller.

    I think we should stay out of this. I'm with China and Russia this week.
