Time to Back the Syrian National Coalition

There are 4 comments on the www.foreignaffairs.com story from Dec 19, 2012, titled Time to Back the Syrian National Coalition. In it, www.foreignaffairs.com reports that:

The Syrian conflict is almost two years old. More than 40,000 Syrians have died, an estimated half million have fled the country, and the violence shows no signs of subsiding. Recently, rebel forces seem to have gained the upper hand in the conflict, and they are in direct control of about 40 percent of the country. They have brought the battle right up to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's doorstep, at times closing off the airport in Damascus. But Assad remains in control, and he has reacted to rebel gains by becoming steadily more violent, most recently launching Scud ballistic missiles against his opponents.

So terrorist Obama wants to arm more terrorists while trying to pass bans and tougher laws on us ?

We need to stay OUT of other country's problems UNTIL and ONLY AFTER we can straighten out our OWN PROBLEMS.

How many HOMELESS in our country?
How many HUNGRY in our country?
How many UNEMPLOYED in our country?
How many INCARCERATED in our country?
How many people UNDERWATER on their mortgage?
How many filing for BANKRUPTCY?

Our government is 16 TRILLION in debt !!

Obama needs to adress AMERICAN issues FIRST.

America NEEDS a leader who puts our country FIRST and FOREMOST!!!

Eleanore, you are right about our problems; but we have the capability to both.

The Arab Spring is bringing once in a centuty oppertunities to do good on an international scale, which can go a long way to make up for the errors the old world and new world made in colonizing the third world.

Isolationism in the face of great change is foolisness. We must do both, and we can.

Fast and frurious was began by GW Bush. Obama was foolish to allow it to continue.
