The problem with religious interference in state matters is very clearly illustrated here. Pray for the people of Syria, arming either side will only make things worse. Replacing a secular dictator in Middle East countries with an Islamic regime has only resulted in more oppression for ordinary people.

Noted. I agree with Phyllis (above). The Sunnis had power in Iraq with Saddam Hussein. Now, support is FOR the Sunnis in Syria?

I will not agree with or listen to drumbeats for war.
