    Booting the Assad's out of power is not a bad idea, IMHO. They've been abusing their citizens for many years.

      live there do it?  Are we on some "mission from G.O.D." to free the world of tyranny only to install our very own oppressive regimes?

      Egypt.

      Iran, after 1953.

      South America.

      Afghanistan and Iraq where the genocides are all but done now, wait "sectarian violence" that killed hundreds of thousands.

      Besides didn't we learn anything in the Iran-Contra scandal?  President goes directly against Congress and arms the terrorists.

      I'm seeing no difference today.  Hell, If I could afford Dish Network, I'd pay for Al-Jezeera News Channel but then I'd be "aiding and abetting known terrorists" to be locked away for decades.
