    Assad seems the lesser of two evils but it isn't our problem to solve. We should stay out of it and tend to our own house.

    I just think what's happening over there is a mystery to most of us.

    Is Turkey going to capitulate?

    Assad is bad to Syrians. You didn't need to wait till the Syrian Civil War to know that he is a brutal murderous dictator just like his father was.
    I know both his daddy and himself.I dont like them but I dont want any other islamist country near the border either and I wonder since when the right wing West cares about humanity.they waited too long to help bosnians .whenever something conflicts with their benefits they play ' humanist' .

    Of course, we should not be leading and deploying. But we should be organizing and assisting. We should have the UN involved and preparing for massive police action there.

    The subject of the Syrian civil war is not for the West to decide regardless.
    It can send aid to one side or the other but it doesn't involve itself directly with it.

    We should be working day and night on getting the regional powers including Europe to pressure the UN to level a robust a police action against both the dictator and the Caliphate. We are talking mass murder and atrocities against the populations. The UN installed R2P and should be held to it.
