    Islam doesn't care about their own people, it would seem. they just care about being dictators to their people.

    Put Republicans in the White House and in control of the Congress. We would be in shooting wars in both Syria and Iran before Valentine's Day 2013.

    In case you haven't noticed, Christian conservatives fit that description, too.

    So what can the Arab world, the Europeans and the United States do?
    Why hasn't the Messiah simply invited Assad to the Whitehouse for a state dinner and spoken to him? I'm sure it be as easy as that. Assad would see the light shown by The One and grant his every wish. Yes, that should be the plan. It'll be the "Obama Leading with h'orderves" plan.

    Truth-you are so totally unbelievable! You certainly prove "you can't fix stupid".

    America has almost 50,000 murdered in Mexico, our next door neighbors. What does the press do? Hardly anything. Guess maybe American press is afraid their heads will hang from bridges. Reporting on Syria is low risk, the media can't even get in. This is armchair reporting, no guts, no glory.

    What's going on in Syria is a deplorable tragedy and should outrage every peace loving person around the world. Of course it's no surprise that someone on the Ticker managed to find a way to take a shot at christian conservatives in the midst of this discussion. Get a life; believe it or not there are people far worse in this world.

    I would tell China and Russia to fix it. If they won't slap a 25 % tarriff on all goods and services coming from those two nations, that are imported to this country. I know that would put Walmart in a huff but I am not a fan of them either. The American Consumer must demand product made with the American Values anyway. China and Russia are in the way because of sales of goods to Syria. Let see how long they would support the crook, if the golden goose looks elsewhere to get products for the American Consumer.

    But Obama had ALL of the solutions to the worlds problems in 2008! The problem was the USA. Everything was OUR fault. All we really needed to do was just be nice and talk to people and the world would fine. Do you think that simpleton Obama has managed to learn anything after 4 years? The middle east is on fire, thanks in part to his encouragement. Some might even suggest that some of the blood in Syria is on his hands.

    Truth, I have tried to ignore you because you are so filled with hate. You just spew your venom, calling
    President Obama names, offering no reasonble arguments for or against anything, just plain meaness.
    How can you look at that picture of that suffering baby, knowing this is happening all over Syria, and not
    feel any compassion for these people. Russia and China vetoed any attempt to try and stop this monster,
    where is your anger for them? Your 'state dinner' comment is silly and disgusting.
