Before we jump into the Syrian 'pandora box,' one should see the whole picture. It ain't pretty.
Before we jump into Syria like we did so fast in Libya...
Justifiably, British PM says Iran, Hezbollah supporting Syria's crackdown (January 18, 2012) Iran and the Iranian-backed Islamist group Hezbollah are supporting Syria's violent crackdown on the country's uprising. The 7,000 victims, with Children in Syria Paying the Highest Price is very sad, so is the Baathist Alawite racist apartheid and racial ethnic cleansing of Sunnis.
Worth mentioning, that the ardent supporters of the Baathist regime are the infamous, SSNP (swastika) Founded by az-Za'im (Der Fuhrer), Saadeh imitated Hitler and the Nazis in almost every possible manner. Thus, the Syrian national anthem for the PPS sang "Syria, Syria uber alles" to the same familiar tune of "Deutschland, Deutschland uber alles.
Yet, Peter Oborne warns (Telegraph, 18 Feb 2012) that "Syria's crisis is leading us to unlikely bedfellows." Not over simplifying the situation, and that the alternative to the negative 'Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Hamas,' isn't that great either.
Moreover, Al Qaeda urges Muslims to help Syria rebels (CBS News - Feb 12, 2012).
So before we listen to Conservatives urge 'immediate' US action on Syria (CNN February 18, 2012) we should know into 'what' we are getting into.
