UN Attacks Syria

With a strongly worded statement:
“Those responsible for the violence should be held accountable,” the Council said
Yeah, that'll fix 'em. Might be more effective to send over Dennis Kucinich again--he was in Damascus speaking in the presidential palace the day IAF jets flew overhead on their way to blowing up the illegal nuclear facility supported by North Korea. He could be a good luck charm.

Speaking of stopping civilian massacres, anyone know how things are going in Libya? Our reason for joining the fray was to prevent a bloodbath in Benghazi but it seems the rebel leader has just been killed by Islamists Then again, that might make sense:
After six months battling a rebellion that his family portrayed as an Islamist conspiracy, Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s son and one-time heir apparent said Wednesday that he was reversing course to forge a behind-the-scenes alliance with radical Islamist elements among the Libyan rebels to drive out their more liberal-minded confederates.
Maybe Obama can bring them all to the White House for a beer summit or a campaign fundraiser. Or better yet, send Gore!

Obama's 'leading from behind' strategy doesn't seem to be working for him or for those in Libya who we thought wanted freedom. We should never go into a country unless we are going to give it everything we have to win the objective. I'm not sure Obama ever stated an objective.

As to Syria, I can't understand why Obama would choose intervention in Libya over Syria.
