    Assad only inherited the role of leader from his father: they were/are both dictators.

    If that were the case, it would be for the Syrian's to decide.

    you forgot what a dictator means?

    It means to rule with absolute power, and eliminate anyone who disagrees with you.

    That's kind of difficult when Assad does not allow elections and slaughters tens of thousands of civilians.

    It's been cited for you too many times and seen by everyone else. I won't be putting it up for you again because you don't care. You want the US to start bombing president Assad's forces and won't get another good nights rest until that happens.

    Why can't you cite your so-called evidence and why can't you tell us how many civilians you think Assad has killed? I'd think the latter could be handled easily.

    President Assad has been fighting terrorists. The US has been training, arming and sending them in.

    I repeat for the third and final time. Myself and several other posters have put up the evidence you request multiple times, you've dismissed it before and only will again. As to civilians killed, as I said, the US has killed far more so you have no legitimate point.

    On the contrary, I have plenty of good reasons why it won't, starting with "it is in none of the key players' interests except for Assad."

    False on both counts. Assad has supportedly and enabled plenty of terrorists, and his main ally, Hezbollah, is probably one of if not the most deadly terrorist organization in the world. Assad is not invoved in a War on Terrorism - he is guilty of it himself, that is a propaganda point that has been captured and repeated by his enablers abroad. Nor did the U.S. kill 1-200K civilians in Iraq; that many probably died, but the vast majority were at the hands of the terrorist organizations that targeted them.

    There's always collateral damage when you're fighting terrorists who hide in apartments and schools.

    Assad hasn't killed any civilians. I can find no evidence to the contrary.
