      Also, one more outstanding post from this Iyad guy I keep talking up--if you get around to it.

      Position on Syria

      It's worth reading the whole thing (it gives perspective on the development of the conflict that you don't get from us westerners on DKos)

      8. So, now that the US has decided to act, do you support its action?

      I would have liked to see a Yemen-style revolution, one that "cracks the door open" for change, and avoids bloodshed. I would have liked to see the world take a stand against Assad when he started killing its own people, and use diplomatic pressure as well as the threat of military action to get him to deal.

      I would have liked the world to have come to their aid before the massacres, the atrocities, the snipers, the shelling, and gang rapes.

      Asking a Syrian now how he feels about American rockets hitting Assad targets is just too late. Too many bombs representing too many agendas has hit Syria, drawing more and more Syrian blood.
