    Obama, hopefully Syria will be another Vietnam for America and maybe then you will learn once and for all to stop imposing your will on others. As far as the crap you said about 'We are the United States of America. We cannot turn a blind eye to images like the ones we've seen out of Syria,', you did turn a blind eye when the rebels used chemical weapons on Syrian civilians which was proven beyond the shadow of a doubt by the UN, but you turned a blind eye on them. Seems is it OK for murder to be committed by pro-American groups and leaders, but as soon as non pro-American groups or leaders do that, you want to punish them. We witness this is Syria when America turned a blind eye on the rebel's use of chemical weapons and in Egypt, where the army generals are killing innocent people while America supports these criminal generals.
