1.  pro-democracy opposition
Marcelo ,   TLV   (12.26.12)
there is no such a thing as pro-democracy opposition in arab countries. All they want is to get in power instead of shiis. In Syria the opposition is pro-muslim brotherhood, nothing to do with democracy and democratic values but only with sharia and killing. Both sides are crazy lunatics and fanatics pigs...
2. International consequences
Rhonda ,   Chicago, USA   (12.26.12)
"...using chemical weapons on civilians will carry international consequences..." Yea, like who believes that when it is easier to focus on some gripe with Israel...
3. Assad vs rebels
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (12.26.12)
Assad is an immoral and cruel butcher. I am proud of the fact that Israel was the only country that stood up against him, while the rest of the world cheered as he raped Lebanon and his own people. But a question. For all those years, his victims were helpless against his police. One day, for reasons of political interests and not human rights, foreign powers started arming Assad's opponents who could finally overthrow this butcher. In Syria, liberty and justice are served by arming the people. Why is it that self-styled "liberals" want to cancel the Second Amendments and deprive the American people of the same tools everyone agrees the Syrian people need?

Obama will do his part. He will give a speech and pretend to wipe a tear from his eye. That will show them.
5. #1 I agree with you and say ...
Iranian Jew ,   LA   (12.27.12)
that we gain nothing by either side. In Assad we have a known enemy and we know his intensions. Rebels are worse than Assad for us in a sense that once they are in control and have guns, they will look to destroy us. Russia has the right idea here. They keep the fight going until Assad runs out of money then they will the Iranina monkey pitch in until they run out of money. And as long these 2 morons are fighting then we don't need to fight them yet. Let's help them fight each other until the end. I hope the Iranian monkey gets in the middle so we can really have a show to watch.
