After reading the post, and the different responses, the following can be stated.
As much as it is a tragedy, the people of that country are under a dictatorship, and it is one of the countries where Islam is a fundamental part of
the daily lives of the citizens. There are 2 sides to going in and stopping the madness by the US or NATO. If we do not go in, then the US and its
allies will be condemned for allowing such to happen, and if they do send in military forces to stop and restore the peace, it will bring about more
hatred towards the US and its allies, on the part of the Islamic world. It is a lose/lose situation for all those in that country and all around.
The US can not afford to go in, to do any sort of peace keeping force, as this is an internal civil war that is occurring, nor should they. However,
this is the exact kind of thing that the UN is suppose to resolve, and work on, however, the UN, very rarely goes in or allow the forces deployed
there to use deadly force. The solution for this, would be to allow either the neighboring countries to go in and help quell the violence, or to let
this play out, and see what all happens in the time frame. Though if the government which is responsible, is victorious in their actions, perhaps
stopping all business dealings with that country would have a greater effect on stating to it, that its actions is not acceptable, and that it needs
to treat its own citizens with some degree of respect, to include not using military hard ware on unarmed civilians.
The other aspect of this, is that this is not the only country right now going through turmoil, or a civil war in the world, it seems like a lot of
the Islamic countries are up in flames right now, demanding changes in the governments. The question should be, why now, and who ultimately is behind
these uprisings. One or 2 countries, that would not be so bad, but when it is 9 or 10, there is something going on, and we should wonder if all of
them are linked together.
