Intervening in Syria

The President of Egypt today called upon--no, demanded that the countries of the world step up and put an end to the atrocities in Syria.

Let me get this straight. When the countries of the world stepped up--with the support of Middle Eastern Muslim countries--and turned back the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, we were condemned by those same Muslim countries (and the American Left) for interfering in Muslim affairs.

And when we--with the cooperation of Middle Eastern Muslim countries--put an end to the atrocities committed by Saddam Hussein on the people of Iraq, once again we were condemned by those same Muslim countries (and the American Left) for interfering in Muslim affairs.

But when we do not interfere in Muslim affairs in Syria, we are condemned by the radical Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt for not doing so?

Give me a break! This is one case in which I support Barack Obama. Stay out of Syria! Our involvement would, in all likelihood, cost many American lives and only serve to set up yet another oppressive Muslim regime as has happened in Libya, Egypt and Iraq.
