Syria On the Radar Screen?
Is Syria on America's radar screen yet? A million protestors in the street, according to this article at least, and the government firing into the crowd, killing 17? Do we care? Or do we only care about freedom for Middle Eastern peoples when it's in the President's short-term political interest to care (Libya) and he thinks he can do the job on the cheap? (Hasn't worked out that way in Libya, which is now in the fourth month of a non-war with a non-assassination assassination strategy, but still.... it was supposed to be easy and quick, which is how Obama appears to like things.)
