Sorry, but screw giving love and peace a chance when it comes to al-Bashir..he's used all his chances up!

And while i am not willing to go for something like McCains call for air strikes, as i don't believe it is up to the US to be the enforcer for the rest of these chicken s*** governments who are willing to just sit back, something has to be done!

How terrible. I feel so bad and scared for them since that madman Bashar al Assad will stop at nothing to silence the voices of anybody that opposes his cruel, authoritarian regime.

I agree with Ellen McCabe that something needs to be done but I would like it to be done without the U.S. having to get heavily involved or have military boots set down in Syria. I wish the UN and Syria's neighbors would handle this thoroughly and quickly. Lives are at stake. Thanks Agnes.

Shame on the US, and the rest of the world who could have ended this long ago.

This is terrible and the international community should act - that doesn't mean the usual US/English coalition that is currently dealing with Afganistan and Iraq, I mean all countries.

Stratfor e-mails released by wikileaks show that the U.S. has been covertly fomenting strife in Syria since December.

John Glaser reports:

> An analyst from Stratfor claimed in December 2011 that officials at the Pentagon clued him in on covert military operations taking place in Syria. “After a couple hours of talking, they said without saying that SOF [Special Operations Forces] teams (presumably from US, UK, France, Jordan, Turkey) are already on the ground focused on recce [reconnaissance] missions and training opposition forces,” the email said.

> “One Air Force intel guy (US) said very carefully that there isn’t much of a Free Syrian Army to train right now anyway, but all the operations being done now are being done out of ‘prudence,’” it continued. “They have been told to prepare contingencies and be ready to act within 2-3 months, but they still stress that this is all being done as contingency planning, not as a move toward escalation.”

-- John Glaser, Stratfor Emails: Covert Special Ops Inside Syria Since December, *antiwar.com*, 07 Mar 2012

The rebel attempt to overthrow the Syrian government is suicidal. Most Syrians want no part of the rebellion and do not want to live in an Islamic State. But the rebels have been given false hope by the Ziosphere. They are sacrificial pawns in the War Party's effort to turn the entire Middle East into a sea of fire.

I sympathize with the people who have been used in this way, but the restoration of order in Homs makes a larger war less likely, and that is good news for all of us -- the refugees included.
