Playin' devil's advocate, curmudgeon, whatever . . . who cares what happens in Syria. Don't we have enough problems here?
Let Saudi Arabia punish them.SAR, I'm betting you feel the same internal conflict about this as I do. I agree, where is the rest of the civilized world with the capability to so saying they will not stand for the slaughter of innocent children with WMD's and we're going to stop it?

Perhaps this will be the event that draws other nations of Islamic belief to formally take up arms against one of their own.
