Syria already expired

Reader comment on item: Forget Syria, Target Iran

Submitted by Farhad Lahafdoozi (United States), Sep 12, 2013 at 20:13

There was a video on an Arabic website in which it shows how violent, brutal , inhumane some people are when they cut the heads of 3 priests in one of the Syrian town. It was really really anti everything. Whatever happens in Syria goes back to this reality: Syrian regime expiration date has already come. But, since there is no democrat alternative for this beautiful and ancient country, people are still paying the cost of war.

If there was any alternative, the international community with USA at the top would think and do better and faster decision. But it seems that the biggest fear of US is the Alqaeda growth in Syria. If they catch the opportunity of power, the whole region would be in bigger mess.Thats why the war is still going on. Iran's role in this chaos is not bigger than the role of International community. They have to put pressure on China and Russia because they are the main player also in this regard, as they were in Iraq. Why should they

always think about their own economical benefits rather than democracy and human rights?
