Has Richard Dawkins made any comments on Syria?
Why would he, he isn't Hitch he doesn't comment about everything and anything. Dawkins focuses on a few issues (which is fair enough) and speaks on them as those are the issues he thinks he knows a lot about.

The BBC's security correspondent Frank Gardner examines what we know about the Syria attack on 21 August
Russian President Vladimir Putin has challenged the US to present to the UN evidence that Syria attacked rebels with chemical weapons near Damascus.
Mr Putin said it would be "utter nonsense" for Syria's government to provoke opponents with such attacks.
US President Barack Obama says he is considering military action against Syria after intelligence reports that 1,429 people were killed on 21 August.
UN weapons inspectors have left Syria after gathering evidence for four days.
They are taking their samples to the Organisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons, in The Hague.
The samples are thought to include soil, swabs from munitions, blood and hair from the victims and, experts say, possibly even flesh from dead bodies.
The US says hundreds of children were among those killed in the suspected chemical weapons attacks, which it blames on the Syrian government.
Syria says the US claim is "full of lies" and says rebels carried out the attacks.
US President Barack Obama said on Friday the US was planning a "limited, narrow" military response that would not involve "boots on the ground".

Pope Francis proposed a world day of fasting and prayer for Syria, saying that “God and history” will judge anyone who uses chemical weapons.

But while the pope condemned the use of chemical weapons, he advocated for a negotiated settlement of the Syrian civil war. Speaking from Vatican City in his weekly address, the pope announced he will lead the worldwide day of fasting and prayer for peace in the nation on September 7.

Francis broke tradition for the weekly papal appearance to tens of thousands in St. Peter’s Square, reports The Associated Press. Rather than the traditional religious theme, the pope instead spoke entirely, emotionally, about Syria.

Haven't you realised that when you post the news, you look like even more of failure?

As President Obama rallies support for a military strike on Syria, Pope Francis condemned chemical weapons and called for an international day of fasting and prayer to press for a peaceful resolution to Syria's escalating civil war.

The pope tweeted an anti-war message to his nearly 3 million Twitter followers on Monday, repeating a theme he has sounded with increasing urgency in recent days.

Lots of people skipping lunch and talking to their imaginary friend will do absolutely nothing to bring about peace in Syria, the same way Rick Perry's "day of prayer" a couple of years ago brought no relief at all from the drought in Texas. The pope is simply irrelevant.

So, you think your god is unimpressed with the massive suffering of the Syrians, but would be moved to action by the trivial suffering of the pope's followers skipping a couple of meals? Oh, and praying, can't forget the praying. Because obviously the problem is no one asked him nicely enough to stop the war, and he could not notice the horrors on his own and feel the need to do anything at all about it.

Atheists often say that believers believe in god for the comfort they get from that belief. I have to say, belief that the world was in the control of a being as ineffectual as you envision your god to be would seem less comforting than the thought that there's no one in control.

Sure, because theists skipping a couple of meals and talking to their imaginary friend has solved so many of the world's problems, right? For example, there's ... um, well, it will come to me. And who can forget that other time when... um... Hey, I'm sure it must have worked on something, right? Right?

On the third paw?

Far too many True Believers™ would benefit greatly, by making it a habit to skip at least one meal a day for the remainder of their overstuffed (and short) lives.

Obesity does appear to be more common among the True Believer™ sort than any other group---

--- in fact? The more "true" the belief is, the more likely they are to be well above the mean, weight-wise.
