Will Obama and Hillary add Syria to their list of failures, like they did with Egypt? Yes, they will.
Egypt is killing Christians, something that only Mubarak had been able to keep the mad muzzies from doing on the scale we are seeing now. In Syria, it's the Assad govt. that is holding the nuts there from murdering Christians. If Assad's govt is overthrown, what's happening in Egypt will happen in Syria.... I am willing to bet any amount of money on that foregone logical conclusion. Any takers????
By now, we should know that our kind of democracy will never ever take root in even one of the blasted muslim countries. By now, we know that the guys we thought were dictators, were actually Mafiaso-kinda guys who managed to keep some semblance of law and order ... viz. Mubarak, Gadhafi, Assad. And yet we are willing and in fact raring to inflict more harm on those nations. The Christians in Syria are going to become "collateral damage" very soon because NATO is bent on vanquishing Iran's allies in the Middle East before going after the big fish. Wait and watch.
The young journalist in the vid below has seen too many horrific things in Libya but I hope she will get over them and get on with her life. Wars mean nothing but violence and death and we can pretty soon lose track of what's right and wrong. The vid will be removed by YouTube sooner than later ... wait and see. In a day or two YouTube will show a message saying "this video has been removed by it's owner. Sorry about that".
Tens of thousands of Syrians thronged a main square of the Syrian capital and nearby streets Wednesday in a huge show of support for embattled President Bashar Assad, as he struggles to quell a seven-month-old uprising. Opponents charge such rallies are staged by the regime.
International pressure is building on Assad to step down over his regime's bloody crackdown on anti-government protests that the U.N. says has left nearly 3,000 people dead.
Wednesday's demonstration was intended to show that Assad still enjoys the support of many Syrians. The gathering was huge in comparison with frequent, almost daily anti-regime protests across the country since March which are often met by tear gas and gunfire from police and security forces.
Organizers said the Damascus rally was also meant to thank Russia and China for blocking a U.N. Security Council resolution condemning Syria for its brutal crackdown. Their vetoes last week drew heavy criticism from the U.S...........
