Why would Europe and the US intervene in Libya but just now want to start more sanctions against Syria. The same Syria that wiped and entire town that was rebelling off of the map 20 years ago. Now Assad is moving mechanized units into towns and killing people wholesale. I think it has to do with Syria's ties to Iran which also gets a free pass to kill their own citizens as well.
Our country does not have a foreign policy in place to hold the rouge regimes to task. The world waits for our leadership meanwhile our CnC plays golf.
