Oh hell yeah...end this mess
No...this makes us no better than he is.
Only if we have the blessing of the Arab League
Tough Call...but someones gotta do SOMETHING!
They have the expectation that to win they need someone from their subculture to win the leadership.
An example is Afghanistan, or several African countries where there are competing tribes in one 'country'.
This is a reply to what I posted earlier: ... getting rid of Assad doesn't solve the problem. There are many replacements waiting to assume his position in his criminal organization. The other problem is the culture in Syria as its not one that can support a rational leadership, they are getting the leadership their culture deserves and they will again.
Now I have to add, there is no easy solution for Syria, the culture has to change. War doesn't solve culture problems. We have some recent examples.

Syria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaThe modern Syrian state was established after the First World War as a French mandate
But how does the issue originate with them in this case?
Even though U.S. law states that assassination is not acceptable, our government has been involved in a lot of uncovered clandestined operations over the years to depose and capture democratically elected leaders. What we did to Saddam might not have been assassination, but a kangaroo court was not justice. They should have just been honest about their intentions and shot him in the field.
Assassination is dirty politics. It's a tool we can use I suppose, but we better be prepared for the backlash. Our government talks a lot about terrorism and safety lately, but the things that increase terrorism and security breaches against us the most are torture, terrorism, assassination, and unprovoked war against other sovereign states.
Our karma is catching up to us and because we have cried wolf so many times, no one is going to come to our aid when we need it most.
