Well then, where has it actually worked so far?

They all go back to their dictatorships and milit ...

You need to give it ten years.

Will still be pretty chaotic for several years, but I do have faith this is still the right direction.

All the angst and unrest has come from being suppressed by these dictators (mostly US backed or we installed these regimes as in the case of Assad).

So once they have control, there will be no one to blame for their failures but themselves.

They'll come to understand quickly just how complicated it all is and either rise to the occasion or fall.

Either way, it will be by their hands which is key.

Newsflash - the death toll now is up to 10,000.  

These are syrians.

All I know for sure is that we are getting the usua,l "roasting babies on their bayonets", stories from our media.

You should listen to the BBC news, you would swear these Alk Kida rebels are a Sunday school class under seige by Assads barbarians when it's really the other way around.

If we were backing Assad and not the Muslim fundamentalist, you would be reading "rebels using civilians as human shields".
