    I wouldn't mind seeing him die, but 1) I doubt it would do much good and 2) It would be illegal to assissinate him.

    Re: Should we" Seal Team" Assad?

    I love how everybody thinks that by killing one person, one can topple an entire regime or organization. After Kim-Jung-Il was dead, did North Korea topple? After Osama's killing, did Al-Qaeda got dismantled? So do you think that by killing Assad, who was actually a humanist and protested against his father's murderous ways in his early years, the killings of the Syrians could stop? Does anybody truly believe that by killing Hitler, the Nazi regime could have been stopped? There were plenty of potential successors well qualified and sometimes even more qualified, such as Albert Speer and such.

    Who said it has to end with Assad? You simply keep removing dictators until theres none left.

    NO. Assad poses no significant threat to the United States or to Americans here in the United States. He does pose a threat to people in his own country, including any Americans stupid enough to be there. However, those individuals who are stupid enough to leave the relative safety of the United States to travel to places like Syria should be doing so AT THEIR OWN RISK.

    According to the State Dept, Syria took part in the assasination of the Prime Minister of Lebanon in 2007. They also continue to provide political support to Hezbollah and Hamas.

    that is correct. the United States does not Assasinate. We just remove your ability to communicate with your commanders by turning off your personal hand-held radio.
