21-7-b: MutaTo movers and shake in the US government, Israel and Saudi Arabia, want us to bomb Syria because reasons.well, yes, there are many reasons people want to remove the assad regime. but we are now talking about a three-year-old civil war that, in a country of 22 million, has left half the people in need of humanitarian assistance, turned a third into internally displaced persons, created over two million international refugees and killed well over 100,000 people. that, to me, looks like a humanitarian crisis. there is established precedent that when a state is manifestly unwilling or unable to protect its citizens then the responsibility to do so moves to the international community. so, given the statistics, i would suggest that the syrian regime has proved itself manifestly unwilling or unable to protect its citizens beyond any doubt. so, if we focus purely on the internal state of syria, i think you have there your reasons for international involvement.do you agree?
21-7-b: DeaHInternational involvement means bombing the crap out of the people in need of assistance? Because that's what the original poster was talking about - bombing. So, I just want you to be very clear that when you say "international involvement" you mean bombing.yeah, or rather 'no'. international involvement doesn't mean bombing the crap out of people in need of assistance. it means protecting people in need of assistance. it means maybe a no-fly zone. maybe targeted strikes against the worst elements of the regime and opposition. assad is a brutal dictator who has created a massive humanitarian crisis where he is committing war crimes and crimes against humanity daily. the crisis is likely to continue as long as he remains in power. take your straw man and stick it
