    If the Syrians rebelling can't convince their own countrymen to join them, doesn't that tell the world something? It's clear the majority of Syrians don't want their country to look like Iraq did after the US imposition of democracy, with kidnappings, suicide bombers, and sectarian violence. Or the way Libya does now. Nor do they want to ferment trouble with their neighbor Iran. Senator McCain may think it's a great thing for a new government to be installed with no ties to Iran, but that would be great for the US, not for Syrians who would have a powerful and angry neighbor on their border pouring in weapons, fighters, and unrest.

    One more thing, why are news agencies reporting the 'Friends of Syria' as friends of democracy or friend of a 'Democratic Syria' when the group is lead by the non-democracies, i.e. Absolute Monarchies, of Saudi Arabia and Qatar?

    I hear the Syrian situation would become more complicated for the United States politically should we get involved.
    I just watched an innocent two year old die because the Syrian Government is slaughtering it's own citizens.
    How complicated was that?

    Our Americans don't have to be the univresal rescuer. Aren't their other countrys that every person on the planet can cry and go to also? Don't other countrys have responsibilities to step forward and take up responsibility, too? Post to those countrys and let us solve our issues here at home for a while instead of scattering our interest. Who are you for?
