Russia has propped up Assad and his father for decades. Another shameful act like the Nazi Stalin non agression pact which was just lies. This time it's murder of syrian children. Russia can't seem to get it right how to be an international leader..

Obama and Hillary have been saying the Syrian regime is weeks if not days from collapse since the start of the year.

politics and war have their own tempo. Assad is dead meat because his people hate him for his murders and lies and his wasteful hipocritical wife who made the mistake of marrying a homicidal monster. With luck she'll survive and be granted asylum in North Korea.

All these war?? Ha Ha Ha ha! Afghanistan was training terrorists responsible for murdering almost 4,000 American LIVES on 9/11. What are you saying clown?? That we should have just stuck our heads in the sand and cried our little eyes out?? Not hardly!! You may sit back and take it in the rear but most Americans were for taking out terrorist training camps responsible for 4,000 American Deaths!! Stop the ignorant nonsense!! Iraq's Saddam Hussein created a far greater humanitarian nightmare than Libya. "The Butcher of Baghdad" slaughtered, at minimum, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis -- far more people than were killed in Bosnia and Kosovo, where President Clinton ordered military force for humanitarian reasons. Yet, when weapons hunters found no stockpiles of WMD in Iraq, the dwindling number of pro-war Democrats turned against the war never mind the sickening sight of thousands of Iraqis found in shallow graves.
That Saddam possessed stockpiles of WMD, having used chemical weapons on the Iranians and his own people, was not in dispute. All 16 U.S. intelligences agencies thought so "with the highest probability." France, the United Kingdom, Russia, Egypt, Jordan, China, Israel and even Saddam's own generals assumed Iraq possessed WMD. Even U.N. weapons inspector and Iraq War critic Hans Blix thought Saddam likely possessed these weapons. As Blix admitted at a 2004 University of Berkeley forum:' I'm not here to have gut feelings. But yes, in December 2002 (three months before the invasion) I thought Saddam had weapons of mass destruction." The non-unilateralist Nobel Peace Prize laureate Obama, unlike Bush, sought no congressional war resolution. Obama, therefore, ordered military action against Libya "unilaterally" -- without the congressional approval that he once argued the Constitution demanded.

As Obama further explained in his December 2007 statement, "In instances of self-defense, the President would be within his constitutional authority to act before advising Congress or seeking its consent." So a president, according to Obama, does not need congressional authority -- provided the action involves "self-defense" or "stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation."

What is the "actual or imminent threat" to America posed by Libya?
Ritter served from 1991 to 1998 as a United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq in the United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM), which was charged with finding and destroying all weapons of mass destruction and WMD-related manufacturing capabilities in Iraq. He was chief inspector in fourteen of the more than thirty inspection missions in which he participated.

In January 1998, his inspection team in Iraq was blocked from some weapons sites by Iraqi officials stating that information obtained from these sites would be used for future planning of attacks. UN Inspectors were ordered out of Iraq by the United States Government, shortly before Operation Desert Fox attacks began in December 1998, using information which had been gathered for the purpose of disarmament to identify targets which would reduce Iraq's ability to wage both conventional and possibly unconventional warfare. UN Weapons Inspectors were thereafter denied access to Iraq. He spoke on the Public Broadcasting Service show. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Ritter

But the Secy of State's condemnation HAS been discredited, Ayreshire. They were NOT supplying new new helicopters to Syria. Russia was returning refurbished Syrian military-owned helicopters that had been sent to Russia for repair and maintenance. The US State Dept acknowledged that.

Russia and China will never allow the Syrian regime to fall, especially when the opposition is comprised of AlQaeda terrorists and "rebels" instigated by scumbag zionists!

"Syrian" you dribble hate and delusion.
Russia will soon abandon Assasd, and Putin is going to Israel to discuss it. Why don't you stop your hyserical rant and go to Syria and help the dictator if you are so convinced? Apparently you are just a mouthpiece for someone else, you seem to lack intelligence or autnonomy. Supporting a child killer is the lowest form of political degeneracy. You got that spot for yourselef along with a few other bottom feeders on Topix. Assad is burnt toast. Swallow . he will end up like Gadaffi with a stick up his butt or Saddam with a rope on his neck. Maybe the Syrians will send him to the hague. he doesn't deserve a trial. he should be given Islamic justice. stoned by the millions of his people he has abused.

No. The Iranian theocracy is unassailable. 90% of Iran's population is Shia. The Shia clergy is very hierarchical and traditionally very wealthy and influential in Iranian society. Since 1979 the clerics have consolidated their position as official leaders of government. As long as Islamism is the strongest poltical force in the region that position will not weaken. Thanks to the US/British destruction of Arab Iraq, Iran has hegemonic power in Najaf and Karbala. Iran's clerics can now point to that as proof that God is truly on their side. Syria is just another secular Arab victim of the brutal schemes of the West, Israel and Islamists. The fall of Asad would not hurt Iran in the least.
