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!
Assassination is unproductive, since the replacement might be even less acceptable to you.
I love the smell of face-palm in the morning!
"You ain't no Muslim bruv!"
I have no moral objection to assassination, and very little practical objection, but the international laws in place prohibiting assassination of heads of state need to stay in place-- so that reputable states are afraid of the loss of face that would result.
It's a popular apocalyptic mutation of Christianity that uses it's power to violate the seperation of powers of church and state in the US
not to mention funnel illegal funds into israeli settlements in order to encourage a global apocalypse so they can go to heaven and all the Jews can be slain and us secularists can live in Fallout World... and also encourage that one speak tongues, pretend that demons and angels occupy their inner minds, perform self taught rituals with the bible to expel demons. Considering their a quarter of the voting population of the US... You could say I'm about 25% as concerned about the US starting the apocalypse as I am the government of Iran...
so yeah... there's a little problem there...
Assad is a dead man walking. How long is he going to continue to walk for? Well that depends doesn't it. How long is he going to be allowed to murder thousands of innocents? The token International outrage against these events by the Arab League and the so called leaders of Countries afar are pathetic.
You know The Right to Protect (R2P) was supposedly set up to allow nation states to take unilateral action to protect civilians against disgusting maniacs like Assad. Syrian crimes can be classified as crimes against humanity especially because they are state policy, systematic and directed so why has R2P not been invoked by the international community nor has reasonable action been undertaken by the Security Council and the ICC?
It's not rocket science. Politics and personal interest. Uphold basic human rights and protect the innocent.......when it suits.
Why do we fall?
So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
