I don't think that protecting the innocent has anything to do with it. If there were oil interests in Rwanda or Darfur, you can be sure that the US would have gotten involved. While we are all talking about chemical weapons and AlQuaeda, and rebels and overthrowing Assad; there's an entire other agenda going on; oil pipelines.<quoted text>
Protecting the innocent is always the right thing to do.
We should have done more in Rwanda and Darfur just as the UN should have.
The problem in Syria is civilians are fighting Assad in the name of human rights but are suspected to be infiltrated by al Qaeda who want Assad dead and his power for their own reasons.
There doesn't seem to be a clear objective in Syria and it's ALWAYS the liberals in this country who do not like America being the peacekeepers - and this president has done little to show the rest of the world he is any different.
You simply cannot deny this is true.
Saudi Arabia and Israel are behind the scenes.
