    For him the population is revolting and rebelling. So of course he needs to quash it. Unfortunately unlike Saudi Arabia, he failed to nip it in the bud.

    Assad is going to die the same way as Qaddafi, Saddam, & Nicolae Ceausescu. In fear and disbelief.
    The real concern is what will be left when he’s gone.
    Respectfully,

    Yes the USA had been using Syria as one of its torture points. But the USA always goes against allies when they are too flagrant about repression. Why Saudi Arabia an Qatar are still okay. They stopped their respective rebellions quickly.

    Expediency, pure and simple. We spread freedom across the world… when it serves our goals! Elsewise, enjoy those “Made in USA” tear gas grenades being thrown into your protest demonstrations.

    Wolf: And in the US too, when they are not being fired into someone’s head or simply sprayed in the faces at one foot range.

    Wonder if Hillary still considers Assad a reformer?

    @Ms. Ima

    The more Conservative and Extreme Republicans are raring to send others to do their dirty bloody work in Syria.

    While liberal democrats like you sit on the sidelines, whining, and sending drones out to kill innocent women and children.

    Assad has got to go, geez why can’t the CIA or Mosad just off him? Toles missed showing Putin right behind Assad giving him kicking instructions.

    Therein lies your answer for why no US-led or US-funded covert action will be taken to ‘off’ Assad. With Putin standing prominently in the near-background of Assad, the US isn’t at all comfortable with taking out the brutal Syrian president. I don’t think O wants to piss off Putin by offing his Syrian puppet…
    By the way, am I the only one that thinks of “Beaker” (the lab assistant on the fabled Muppet Show) every time I see Assad? Assad IS one of the strangest-looking Middle-eastern men I’ve ever seen…an’ a head taller than most of them…Maybe his mother was a giraffe … or an ostrich…
