Syria Opposition Seeks No-Fly Zone


online.wsj.com

Syrian opposition groups are calling for the first time for an international intervention to protect civilians from the Assad regime's ongoing military onslaught, including the establishment of a United Nations-backed no-fly zone.

The rebels' formal calls drew a tepid response Wednesday from the Obama administration and European governments, who said there is currently little appetite to reprise the type of air campaign that helped dislodge long-serving Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi last month.

OK peeps here we go. Now I'm going to actively take notice just how many here will be favor for such activity and then when the first images of civilian casualties start showing up I'll remind people.

It seems to be just a few short months ago there were tons of members all in favor of Libyan action then as the mission continued then it flipped.

Stay tuned....

Aaaaand WW3 is on horizon. If they do get a no fly zone, I think they will flip out. They are already pee'ved at their people for rebelling some of the videos I've seen are disgusting. Is this for the good? maybe. We needed to go into Syria first to actually HELP the citizens not go into Libya to overthrow Gaddafi I swear I wish I could jump off this planet. It really does make me angry all this snip going on....

Not another "no fly zone." We all should know what a "no fly zone" means. It means we're going to fly over you and drop a bunch of bombs.

We're being lied to by everybody, on BOTH sides of the Arab uprisings; that includes our own Nobel Peace Prize recipient.

Check this out: D-Day for Damascus

We really need to keep our boys at home and our money in our pockets.

I think this is interesting from the same story


U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland, citing a lack of consensus among the Syrian opposition, said the U.S. believes most of the opposition doesn't want foreign military intervention of any kind. "The number one thing that we can do to help them is to get international monitors in there," Ms. Nuland said. "We need witnesses so that we can hold Assad to account."

The guy on my right shoulder is saying "Go ahead, no fly zone is great.
That will show the World."

The guy on my left shoulder is saying





Didn't Obama just say that issues can't be resolved by the UN?


Peace will not come through statements and resolutions at the UN

I'm just waiting for Russia to come unglued over all this back and forth he said she said who struck Paul and attempt something there. This could get ugly but so far Washington and the EU seem to be balking, so much for all the fear mongering FOR NOW

How hard is it for anyone to find Assad with drones/satellite/stealth plane and when you find him, you drop a bomb on him?

Should have been done with Mubarak.

Kill Assad, kill the regime, no need to kill hundreds if not thousands of people. Kill the head.

NO... just... NO.

That would STILL be intervention in the internal affairs of others, with a twist of assassination on the side. Look, everyone here knows what a nice, peace-loving guy I am. My hippy beads are still on back order. The thing is, even I, as dense as I am, know that you can go a bridge too far.

Right now, we're already at least THREE bridges too far. Over-extended. Lines spread too thin. You know, my usual take on the spin of things. I have a friend in Syria. last I heard, he was in either Homs or Aleppo, and that's been a while back. He could be dead by now for all I know. Even with that, I STILL think we ought to leave 'em be, and let 'em fight their own internal battles amongst themselves. Actually, I think he was hanging out on Jamil al-Azree in Homs, beside Mahata Hospital.

It ain't our fight. At all.

Ever get in the middle of a bar room fight between a man and his wife, or two brothers? Just trying to keep the peace, y'know... but it's a BAD idea. BOTH will turn on you, and you'll be lucky to exit with most of yer hair and teeth.

I say let 'em have at it, place bets on the winners, pop some popcorn and crack open a beer... and STAY in the spectator section.

Blasted war-mongering Neocons... oh, wait, ain't there a Democrat in the wheel house at the moment? What's up with that? sometimes, it's just too hard to tell 'em apart....
