    Today, we have seen the cry for freedom sounded loud and clear by the syrian people, much like the revolutionists here during the birth of this great country. Paraphrased by the young man interviewed earlier today were the words of Patrick Henry..."Give me liberty, or give me death." Our founding fathers were correct when they said that "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" is an inalianble right. Our fight was fought largely by our continental soldiers, but eventually it was the support of the French navy that sealed our victory. Do we not owe the Syrian people the same support given us more than 200 years ago by the French?
