    Why would you want to bomb an entire region of innocent people who have never done anything to you in the first place?

    Supposedly to help the people who are trying to overthrow the regime. BTW, why did we bomb Gaddafi in the first place?

    How does it help them when they and their families are caught in the crossfire?

    I don't know, but we shouldn't have.

    I know really, they're damned if we do and damned if we don't.

    Assad's troubles are good for the West: it means he can't sponsor terrorism anymore. Eventually he's probably going to run out of money. That reminds me, I wonder how many people in these cities are still paying their taxes? There are many ways to undermine a government.

    It seems to me the protestors, unlike in Libya, are divided between self-righteous altruists and consequentialist diehards. The Rebel Alliance is trying to take shape, but it's being undermined by the peaceniks who think how you live your live is more important than how long you live. Assad opponents who are in the middle of these extremes aren't sure which way they "should" go.

    They should decide whether they want to keep Assad or not, and if they don't, create a new society without him.

    I've done some research on the matter. It looks to me like Syria is a modern Russian satellite. Perhaps the last. Syria permits the Russians the use of their port, and Russia has taken very good care of it.

    It looks like SCO vs the West all over again, and it looks like the West is, naively, angling for a death blow. The only people who will benefit from this are the military industrial complex, who, like as not, are probably the chief powers beating the war drums.

    Yeah, what gives? You could be suppressing Fe with all your thinking? Fe types are very honest and straight forward about what they want to do in those situations suppressing Ti, thought about them.
