Yeah, of course, makes Assad say."WTF" then go shoot some pilgrims. He thinks if he kills anyone it must be good for the country and looks like he is doing something, even if it is barbaric.

The U.S. does not rule distant territories by force. The U.S. has not expanded its borders nor its holdings over any nation. America intervenes in other nations affairs only if has been decreed by the UN or NATO and then only does so legally and with a coalition. Saddam did not abide by U.N. Resolutions from the First Gulf War, so we had every right to go back in regardless of WMD's.
A better question to ask you clueless ignorant self is what countries haven't we helped. Almost everyone IE France, Germany, Russia and many others hate our country. They never repaid American for rescuing their sorry rear ends during WWII and helping to rebuild their countries.

Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60's when DeGaulle decided to pull out of NATO. DeGaulle said "I wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible."
Rusk responded, "Does that include those who are buried here?"
DeGaulle did not respond and you could have heard a pin drop.

Our country has aided every other country in the world at one time or another. We even help our enemies, when Iran had earthquakes a few years ago, we were there to help. When the tsunami hit we even helped out those people wearing Osama bin Laden t-shirts.

We contributed massively to the post WWII rebuilding effort in both Europe and Japan.

The US gives billions of dollars annually in aid (and not just to Israel for those Israel whiners) to other countries, provides humanitarian support, forgives the debt of other countries and lends troops in times of military conflict (which shouldn't be confused with invading another country, such as Iraq).

NATO is a self-defense organization and has no legal mandate to attack nations that have not attacked its members.

That's why NATO could not be legally be deployed in Libya without a UN Security Council mandate. which it exceeded in any case.

In 1999, NATO engaged FRY, without a Security Council mandate.

In 2011, NATO engaged Libya, exceeding the mandate provided by the Security Council.

That's why in 2012, Putin sarcastically stated that the NATO needs no UN mandate if it wishes to go to war in Syria.

The only reason NATO has not engaged Syria is that the opposition has been hijacked by Islamic extremists and it is reluctant to engage, leaving individual nations to supply those of their choosing with arms and support, in some hope that all will turn out to their liking. Unfortunately, there's fat chance of that IMHO.

That, unfortunately, is the inevitable result of 'oh what tangled webs we weave when we've already set precedents to deceive." The eventual and inevitable loss of faith in the integrity of those who govern us.

Notice that al-Qaida groups are supported mainly from Europe and they pass through Turkey to reach Syria.
