Original Starting post for this thread:
BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian forces struck back against rebels Thursday with attack helicopters and shelling in Damascus, one day after an audacious rebel attack in the capital killed three leaders of the regime and left President Bashar Assad's hold on power increasingly tenuous.

The whereabouts of President Bashar Assad, his wife and their three young children were not known. Although Assad does not appear in public frequently, his absence was notable following such a serious blow his inner circle.

Thousands of Syrians streamed across the Syrian border into Lebanon, fleeing as fighting in the capital entered its fifth straight day, witnesses said. Residents near the Masnaa crossing point — about 25 miles (40 kilometers) from Damascus — said hundreds of private cars as well as taxis and buses were ferrying people across.

Maj. Gen. Robert Mood, the Norwegian head of nearly 300 unarmed U.N. observers in Syria, condemned the violence and encouraged a diplomatic solution, which appears increasingly out of reach. He spoke just hours before a planned U.N. Security council vote on whether to renew the mission's mandate, which expires Friday, and impose new sanctions on the Damascus regime.

We need to keep out of the middle east. We already have two tigers by the tail (Afghan and Iraq) so why wade into Syria.

I almost hate saying this but I'm with Obama on this one too.

Hillary Clinton and congressmen alike have called on Obama to arm Syria’s rebels. But the president fumed at lawmakers in a private meeting for suggesting he should’ve done more.

President Obama got angry at lawmakers who suggested in a private meeting that he should have armed the Syrian rebels, calling the criticism “horseshit.”

While I don't give President Obama kudos too often, in this case, I personally say "kudos, Mr. President". The willingness to call horseshit horseshit - as impolite as it may be - is to be commended.

I thought "L" stood for the Levant. It's hard to keep up.

Seeing as Syria is back in the news and very much a part of what's coming down with ISIS or ISIL (Libya) I thought I'd revive this thread....

We are now getting the possibly embellished but still good story of Mr. Abdul Haji, a 39-year-old real estate executive who got a text from his brother while being held hostage in the mall.

He rushed to the mall, not sure what if anything he could do about it, and when he saw an opportunity, the story goes, coordinated the safe evacuation of a few dozen hostages.

A picture being widely circulated shows him reaching his hand out to a 4-year old American girl running for her life to him.

I'm glad that we have people like this... makes having to share the world with the monsters who did this bearable.

I hate the al Qaeda, anyone in Alleghenies with them becomes my enemy. I will do what I can to persuade my representatives not to spend even 1 of my tax dollars on aid to them.

VAbeach:

We have tried invading and replacing leaders... It has never worked. Just stay the fuck out of the middle east... Leave the entire region to the Russians and the chinese. Neither will mess with Isreal and Israel will do business with both the russians and the chinese... Thus the three can be the happy rulers over the middle east.
