Kumana Wanalaia: Great. So when the world goes to shiat, our kids can just... just...

what was your plan for that scenario again?

Kumana, with respect, the world has been going to shiat for the past 5000 years. Nothing we do (especially in that region of the world) will make much difference in the positive sense.

Whenever America sticks its proverbial nose in other nation's business, it rarely ever works out for the better.

The revolutionaries and rebels of today become the theocratic dictators of tomorrow.

RevCarter: Selective is not necessarily hypocritical. There is a grim cost/benefit analysis that goes into the situations where we intervene (now, not during GWB).

Intervention in Libya was far less dangerous for the US than intervention in Syria. Breaking with Mubarak had far less consequences than breaking with the Bahrainis (i.e. the US 5th Fleet) and Saudis (i.e. the stability of the global oil market).

Unfortunately, we do what we can under the circumstances, not what we want.

Agreed. But we can't foresee the future. Never can. Never will. The dictators in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia we support today out of political/economic convenience could very well be our undoing tomorrow.

Talk about less consequences: We broke with Mubarak and supported the protesters. For all we know, those protesters and their newly granted democratic powers could vote in a strong right-wing Islamic theocracy that likely be hostile to us and our interests (i.e. Israel).

That's just theoretical. Talk about real consequences? Remember when we supported the Afghani mujaheddin against the Soviets? That didn't work out well for us at all in the long run. We're still paying for it in terms of blood and treasure.

The list goes on and on and on.

I'm sorry, but you've not convinced me. I respect what you're saying, but I have to disagree. Let's fix our own domestic mess first. Get our house in order. Work towards not being so dependent on their resources.

If the Arab League is so gung-ho about fixing the Syrian situation... let them interfere. I think we'd be best just keeping out of that quagmire (giggity!).

Gosh, I ask myself, what could possibly go right in this scenario?

Freaking Arabs got plenty of money and weapons, let them solve Syria themselves. They broke it..

Headline should read: "Arab League wants UN Western Nation Peace Keepers" so they can blame them for anything that goes wrong. The Arab League is the biggest bunch of hypocrites going. When things go wrong, they sit back do nothing, protest very little. When it gets real bad, they run to the Western nations for protection and to solve their problems. This is an Arabic problem, let the oil sheiks and muslim clerics solve it. They have the religion of peace to aid them.

They are two faced. Speaking out of one side, they lambast the Western heathens as working for the devils. All the while, they cry for help from the Western nations. When was the last time, you heard of an Arabic nation helping out in a UN sanctionned event? Maybe even giving out a token effort? They are the first to raise their voices crying for some one ELSE to step in and intervene.

I see the Arab League, Syria, Arab Spring like this...

I don't live in any of these countries.
I don't want to live in any of these countries.
We don't need to bomb the governments.
We don't need to support the protesters/rebels.

We'd really be best off keeping our noses out of it.
Just keep a wide, respectful distance and observe from afar. Full Size
