He said Gaddafi was suppressing his people and that “left unchecked, we have every reason to believe that Gaddhafi would commit atrocities against his people. Many thousands could die. A humanitarian crisis would ensue. The entire region could be destabilized, endangering many of our allies and partners. The calls of the Libyan people for help would go unanswered. The democratic values that we stand for would be overrun. Moreover, the words of the international community would be rendered hollow.”
Now Assad is massacring his own people, thousands will die, the entire region is destabilized, endangering our allies and partners. The calls of the Syrian people for help go unanswered.
Obama is calling for Assad to step down and will employ sanctions which will work as well as they do with Iran. Obama helped set off this firestorm in the Middle East but he either had no clue as to what he was unleashing or he is a madman. It was obvious from all accounts, even our own Pew Research, that the Middle East countries would remain secular dictatorships or evolve into religious fascist regimes.
