    While that quote from MLK is not familiar to me, it is hard to disagree with it.
    I wrote to my representative, my senators, and the POTUS after returning from a wonderful visit to the mountains of Tennessee. The emails expressed my opinion that the Arab League and Syria’s neighbors should take the point on any military actions with western “crusader” nations acting in a support role. Muslims do not like it when “Christian” nations are part of the solution. Even our assistance to Kuwait when they were invaded by Iraq was met with protests across the Muslim world.
    An interesting story on CNN last weekend mentioned the brother to Assad who is called “the Enforcer”.

    It would be nice if Russia and China would join the majority of nations who want to stop Assad’s regime from doing more harm in the area, but…
    the cartoon says it well.

    “You are getting the ‘hope and change’ you voted for. How do you like him now?”

    I like him quite well, thank you.

    After the vote in the British Parliament, and France’s pledge of cooperation, we can now call those golden potatoes French fries again. English muffins, however are now freedom muffins.

    So according to you, Israel is trying to convert all Arab countries into one stateless region while the Arab countries want to turn Israel into a grave yard full of dead Israelites…

    I still think you’re really over simplifying the situation. There are still rebel groups who lean towards a secular state. Even the Wahabbi/Salafist groups have differing ideas on what & more importantly WHO, should replace Assad. The Israelis can reasonably expect chaos to go on for years after Assad’s demise.

    They may be using Egypt as a template: let the hardcore Muslims get a moment of control. Let them show they can not in fact govern, then topple them. Worst case, post-Assad Syria looks like Lebanon in the 90s. A threat to Israel, but not an existential one.

    Methinks Putin is going to regret his choice to support Assad. Russia should be more worried about WMD proliferation in their backyard.

    Do what we did in 1982 over the war between Iraq and Iran – nothing
    .
    Oh, y’mean St. Ronnie, who sold the Iranians missiles, and traded weapons for the hostages? And also supported his “pal”, Saddam? That war?
