This is a regime that’s held it’s people down and back, because they are afraid if they were to become strong they would throw the Baathists out of power. The Assad Regime is only interested in staying power and doing whatever they can to protect the interests of their regime. Not Syria itself, they are not interested in the best interest of their own country. If it hurts the strength of their regime. The United States and the rest of the developed world at least in the West that has the capability to help out struggling rebels when they are fighting for their freedom by protesting against an authoritarian government, have a responsibility to step up and help out when they can. When Freedom and individual liberty are at stake.
The West has a responsibility to step up and help out where they can. With the Arab League, European Union and NATO, the West working with the Arab League, has the ability to step up and save innocent Syrian citizens from their own brutal government. By arming the Syrian rebels and giving them arms and human resources to help them survive. And let them do their own fighting and then later a no fly zone if it becomes necessary. Senator McCain is right about Syria and he’s also right that America can’t do this on our own. We simply can’t afford to. We have to do this working with our partners, so we don’t have to take all the risks and pay all the price. But this is something we can do and should do.
