"Beirut (AFP) - Ten children were among at least 48 people killed in a Syrian village this week when regime forces executed six families of rebel fighters, a monitoring group said on Saturday."
So, we are supposed to support a savage dictator because he is just slightly less barbaric than ISIS? Who, exactly, do we expect to bring a decent way of life to the people of Syria and Iraq, and now Yemen and Libya too? Are we expected to feel bad that another savage, terrorist monster, Moammar Khadafy was overthrown, because the people of his country don't have the decency to come together and build a peaceful country, preferring to slaughter each other en masse over meaningless religious disputes?
Of course, the Republicans' answer to this is to savagely attack Obama for not fixing the unfixable, when we all know that if they were in charge, not only would they do no better, but their hunger for violent intervention would make things far worse, as it did in Iraq.
Thank heaven that Obama has done as little as he has. What his opponents want to do will only pave the road to hell.
