United Nations monitors in Syria were shot at when they tried to reach the scene of a reported massacre in Hama province, as UN envoy Kofi Annan asked the international community to help force President Bashar al-Assad to abide by a cease-fire.

“Clearly, the time has come to determine what more can be done to secure implementation of the plan -- and/or what other options exist to address the crisis,” Annan told the General Assembly today in New York. “If things do not change, the future is likely to be one of brutal repression, massacres, sectarian violence and even all-out civil war.”

Well, I think that this is the straw that will break the camel's back. I don't think their is no turning back. Amid the other reports of the strong support of China and Russia towards Syria, this could possibly be the next great war. I guess we will see soon enough.

We have 2 options: If we are going to be an empire we should take out Assad in preparation for the attack on Iran. It would weaken their ability to counter attack and deny them access to the Mediterranean.

If we are going to be a government actually based on the constitution we should say that sucks and go about our business.

There it is! Problem solved! That didn't seem that hard. Why can't that be the answer. You know as well as I do that will never happen. If it does, we may need to re-evaluate the 2012 end of the world predictions.
