In this Sunday, July 8, 2012 photo released by Syria’s official news agency SANA, Syrian troops participate in a live fire exercise in an undisclosed location in Syria. In a show of force, Syria began large-scale military exercises Sunday to simulate defending the country against outside “aggression.” Damascus’ staunch ally Iran warned of a “catastrophe” in the region if no political solution to the 16-month-old Syrian conflict is found.

    The Syrian people, hopefully with outside assistance, are responsible for overthrowing the DICTATOR!

    Nations are built from the strenght of the people within. The United States of America was born through revolution by the people and for the people. We need to let Syria take its course as the nature of man in his struggle prescribes. Let’s not so whole heatedly intervene and install a different tryrannical government or burdonsome theocracy as we have so often done before. Sorry we all can be as our human nature should require for the deaths, the suffering and the turmoil, but sometimes things must take their course.

    • “Let the conflict take it’s course….” …what if the French said that during our revolutionary war; where do you think we would be today, Mr. NoMaster? In fact, we have an obligation to do everything we can against those Syrian military savages who are brutally murdering their own people under false pretenses…..I don’t see any difference between genocide and what’s going on there right now.

        Well John, you are right the French did help us. However, today ,how many more wars do we need to pay for on Chinese credit like Afghanistan and Iraq. Is breaking our economy and future worth the expense, entering another war and seeing more of our children die. A lot of this massive debt that we are burdoned with today comes from our growing industrial complex and our involvement in other nations. We need he money to pay for our infrastucture, our schools and our needs.
