It is not that I don't agree with you, I would like to regard myself as "well informed", but there is a difference between low-level warfare (low
intensity) and a total state collapse with ensuing civil war and that
is what I think must be stopped. It's quite enough with one
war, in fact one is too many. Though I am painfully aware that the situation is about the same in Iraq ("mission complete", ey?) Libya and Yemen
(not really the same area but in the same "sphere") still not nearly as devestating.
Looking at how things have been a-brewing I think it will be worse before it gets better. Egypt, Bahrain and possibly Iran is going to meet the same
What still stands though, despite the hopelessness of it all, is my human compassion and outrage
over all this since very early on regarding
After Rwanda R2P was signed in the UN. Now I know
that was all just talk, as usual, but it still pisses me off!
There is no need to "break" anything to me, trust me, but I feel it is my duty as a fellow human being to react in the way I do.
This is all in the end the result of one thing: the UN system, with special concern to the Security Council, has reached its critical end. An obsolete
institution that we keep investing trust in, has come to bring more harm to world peace and security than good.
And who pays for that? The civilian populations who had nothing to do with this war in the first place.
This world stinks.

So what if the Syrian Govt wanted to use Chem weapons...it is their country, not ours. They have the right to defend themselves.
If I didn't know better, I'd call the Syrian Electronic Army on that quote.
