  •  This circumstance of a ruthless dictator killing (0+ / 0-)

    thousands of his own people has happened many, many times before.  It's useful to look further back than Iraq, since Iraq was a case where the world was blatently lied into intervention.  Historically the U.S. and other countries have intervened in another country's internal massacres when the violence spread or threatened to spread to surrounding countries in the region.

    As fears of the conflict's spreading to Syria's neighbors become more pronounced, the calls for U.S. intervention at some level will become more pronounced and public as well.  Already, fears in Jordan, Turkey, Israel and Lebanon are ratcheting up and becoming more public.

    "In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican." - H. L. Mencken
