by outside meddling...do you mean Russia and China behaving differently on the Security Council than they would behave if not for reasons specific to
their own interests in the region? Surely you don't think Russia would vote the way they have if Georgia was doing in South Ossetia what Assad is
doing in Syria.
I know you aren't implying that the United States is meddling in Syria...if we were meddling the no fly zone would've been up and running last year
this time, the Syrian Armed Forces would be destroyed and Assad would be dead already. Its well known how effective the US is in meddling.
If the US was meddling, this thread would be about how wrong the US was by destroying the Syrian military institution, Assad's brutal video taped
death and public display of his body in a meat market...and how much its gonna cost to rebuild a new military from scratch.
the only meddling I see is of Assad supporters trying to convince the world that a Military Victory is possible in a civil war, even though everyone
knows its not, and that Assad has a chance of going back to how things once were, when everyone knows he doesn't.
Apparently, Assad will win obtain a military 'victory' over his country men, but he will lose politically. He'll get to pay the cost of rebuilding all
of the stuff he blew up and repairing all the lives he destroyed while remaining in power.
its good to be constantly reminded that the UN is little more than a tool meant to protect despots.
