Leaving aside the fact that the unarmed UN peace keepers were taken hostage in desperation to keep Assad’s forces bombarding the rebels’ positions[which I found to be counter-productive and do not condone], I rather liked your comment, " is that they type of replacement govt we want over there?"
For someone who consistently comments in this Views section that “we” should just leave “them” to it and to “their” own devices, why on earth would you then write “we want” ?“You” want? “We” want? I thought it wasn’t up to “us”. I think it is often difficult for some Americans, brought up within the “America is Exceptional” view, not to think the world is theirs to govern according to their worldview.
