How's that Bubble treating you?
p.s Not going to engage someone in a serious debate when they accuse you of being melodramatic whilst innocent people get butchered in the streets. Turn on the News tonight or read some articles before you start throwing around the word melodarmatic.

The Associated Press: Humanitarian crisis deepens in Syrian city of Homs
Here is a good start for you but I warn you you may have to actually start searching for articles because it probably wont appear on your local 10 oclock news that you are so fond of. Read up on the death tolls, take in some eye witness accounts and watch some videos and see if that wakes you up.
Here is a rather interesting article that argues that American's are not interested in spreading democracy to Syria (Don't Count on a Syria Intervention - By Scott Clement | Foreign Policy)
"And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."

Look at y'all gettin' all trolled-up about a guy whos name is phonetically 'white trash'.
The Soviets get their marching orders from the Chi-coms! Read a newspaper!!
China values its own currency. China operates without human, labor or environmental rights. Combined, we can see that China's economy is a paper tiger. If anyone's balls are in a sling, it's China. They would collapse if the US (and perhaps even just Russia) voided all deals and refused self-valued currency.
Assad forces mull use of chemical weapons in Homs, opposition says - Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel NewsOpposition activists said they had received reports that the Syrian army had transferred a significant quantity of grenades and mortars containing chemical agents to a school building in Homs.
The opposition also reported that gas masks were being distributed to soldiers at roadblocks.
Homs has become the focal point of violent confrontations between insurgents and the country's military in recent days, and opposition figures are concerned that the moves could signal the regime's intention to use chemical weapons against its citizens.
News agencies reported over 130 killed in Syria on Thursday, as Bashar Assad's government intensified its crackdown on an expanding uprising against his regime.
If he gasses his people, then we do something, right?
These pretexts are false. Do you recall that NPR used the Matt Cooper and Judy Miller false threats from the NYT before Iraq? The path to Iran is thru Syria apparently. Some Newspeak going on here. Militants armed by the U.S. have been destablizing the nations experiencing "the Arab Spring," (merely a new name for the protracted War on Terror.) Google News recently quoted Obama as using 9/11 in his speeches just as Bush/Cheney did in order to justify invasions of whatever country they wish, and at that time it was Iraq.
"The human rights crusade has been the medium through which an entire social layer of ex-left and liberal members of the more affluent sections of the middle class—a key constituency of the Democratic Party—has abandoned the antiwar posture it embraced under the Bush administration and largely integrated into the imperialist war drive under Obama.
"Typical of this layer is the MSNBC news program host Rachel Maddow, who appeared on NBC’s “Today” program Tuesday morning to declare that the “entire world” has lined up against Iran and that “everybody expects Israel to take the lead” in attacking the country’s nuclear program.
"The “entire world” for Maddow and her ilk consists of the capitalist governments of the US and Western Europe and presumably excludes Russia, China and India—comprising nearly half of the planet’s population—not to mention the hundreds of millions of working people throughout the world who oppose yet another and far bloodier war in the Middle East.
