    but substantially so. The charge that the UN is some kind of enabler of Assad is just wrong. Syria is a very difficult problem. The USA and many countries have said that Assad and his regime must go. However, there is a right way and a wrong way to get there. Military intervention by NATO is not good at this stage. Few internecine conflicts like this aren't so bad that they can't be made a lot worse by military escalation. Right now, the economic sanctions against Syria have it running out of cash and credit. So the regime may grind to a halt soon. The Russians will do a lot for a customer, but credit isn't one of them.

    The universe may have a meaning and a purpose, but it may just specifically not include you.
