The aid flotilla is on its way?

Reader comment on item: Stay out of the Syrian Morass
in response to reader comment: Damned if we do, damned if we don't.

Syria is a humanitarian disaster, and a concern of everyone.

Really? Is that so? Then why doesn't the Turkish government organize an aid flotilla like the one they sent to Gaza? And what has the Egyptian government done to address this concern of everyone? How about the Jordanians? The Kuwaitis? The Pakistanis? Great to see the umma in action.

And given your reaction when we removed the most murderous dictator in the middle east, (Remember "Our blood and our souls for you, oh Saddam?") why should we do anything about this one? And it will be the USA that will be blamed, as always. Blamed for intervening if we intervene and blamed for not intervening if we don't intervene. Given that choice, I'll gladly take the blame for not intervening.
