I would agree if this were a Syria issue that there is no reason for us to get involved in other nations civil wars at all. However, I do not believe
this is the case. I dont believe that this is a Syrian issue any more than i believe that the vietnam war was a vietnam issue, or the venezuelan coup
last decade was a venezuelan issue. I am quite convinced that this issue in Syria is but one more in the American standard of fomenting colored
revolutions in nations with regimes we dislike, and that without initial, covert US involvement, there would likely not have been a revolution there
at all....or in Libya.
In truth, it is hard to say what might have happened in these and other places without US funding al-qaeda and other insurgents to fight these
governments that had policies that went in opposition of our agenda. The fact remains, the overthrow of these nations governments is right in line
with US national goals, and this convenient fact removes all credibility from any actions we take, no matter how much we might cry that it is all in
the name of democracy and the civilian populations. I think the Iraqi citizens might be hard pressed, at this point, to make a choice of what they
would have preferred, an Iraq where they were left to deal with Saddam over time, through their own processes, or the iraq of today where 1.3 million
of their friends and family are dead, and 4-5 million have been forced to flee the country thanks to US "Humanitarian" intervention. Libya
certainly has a long hard road ahead, and has lost much of the ground it had gained under Qaddafi, as has Africa by losing him. I am certain that
once we get truly involved, the same thing will be the fate for the Syrian people.
