    I am still horrendously disgusted with the Russian and Chinese governments for blocking United Nations Security Council action in Syria. I just really hate people so much.

      Same here.

      I have heard reports now that the UN 'aid' will be humanitarian only...safe zones instituted just as in Kosovo....so basically, if you can get out, awesome. If not, well...you're boned.


      But I bet if there were poppy fields or oil out there in the midst of this...

            These are pretty much the only rational responses to international politics. Except for "FUCK ALL YOU PEOPLE", that one's ok too.

                The world is on fire.......and it WILL unfortunately make it to our shores one day. The frustrating part - most people care more about their favorite TV show rather than something like this.

                            Earlier today I read an article from the World Affairs Journal, by Michael J. Totten, where he listed a few facts about why the ruling elite in Syria is likely to fight for as long as they still have the means to do so...

                            Lastly, there’s Syria. Its tyrant, Bashar al-Assad, is still the strong horse. The mostly peaceful uprising against him has now lasted the better part of a year, but he and his loyalists are willing to kill as many people as they think they have to to maintain control. For them, ruling Syria isn’t just about power. It’s an existential fight for their very survival.

                            The Assad family and most of its Syrian allies are Alawites, a heterodox religious minority that branched off from Twelver Shia Islam almost a thousand years ago. Today they have as much in common with Christians and Gnostics as they do with Muslims, who consider them infidels. They believe human beings were once stars. They worship the moon and the sun. They drink wine in some of their rituals. The core of their religion is secret and forever closed to those not born into it.

                            “If you’re looking for a pleasant religion that harmonizes with the natural elements,” Theo Padnos recently wrote in the New Republic, “this is the faith for you.” Yet Alawite leaders managed, through the Arab Socialist Baath Party, to transform Syria into a totalitarian prison state with their own elite as its wardens.

                            When France ruled Syria after World War I, the Alawites petitioned the imperial authorities for a state of their own on the shores of the Mediterranean. “The Alawites refuse to be annexed to Muslim Syria,” Suleiman al-Assad, grandfather of Syria’s current president, wrote in a petition to France in 1943. “In Syria, the official religion of the state is Islam, and according to Islam, the Alawites are considered infidels. . . . The spirit of hatred and fanaticism imbedded in the hearts of the Arab Muslims against everything that is non-Muslim has been perpetually nurtured by the Islamic religion. There is no hope that the situation will ever change. Therefore, the abolition of the mandate will expose the minorities in Syria to the dangers of death and annihilation.”
