So you find nothing wrong with a ruler killing people.
Do I have that right?
Sure, it's none of our business, but that desn't absolve one of the disgust and moral responsibility to do something, anything to stop the
No, you don't have that right, and it's pretty absurd to suggest that to be honest.
My opinion is that intervention could make a bad situation worse, as has been something of a record in the past decade, involving Iraq, Afghanistan,
Libya, Pakistan and Egypt. You run the risk of leaving a power vacuum depending on how much damage is done. In Libya's case, a large instance of the
"Muslim Brotherhood" cropped up, among other problems. I don't need to go into Iraq or Afghanistan, even though they were far more overt and
oppressive than the other examples.
I really don't understand why it should be any military superpower's business to get involved with internal conflicts within other countries. You
cannot tell me with a straight face that e.g. the US (since they seem to have such a keen interest in the matter), actually cares about the welfare of
Syrian citizens? I could go off on a red herring about all the atrocities in Africa that world powers don't bat an eyelash to, but I won't bother.
It stands to reason there is more at play than an apparent plea for humanity.
If you're petitioning me for a solution, I wouldn't really know what to say, as I do not follow it that deeply. I could tell you how not to make it
