    Sarkozy is right, Assad is a murderer. What else would you call him after he killed hundreds of people with snipers on rooftops? Indeed, Assad and his henchmen have so much blood on their hands that they are no longer concerned with saving Syria, but with saving their own hide. As a world community governed by universal principals of fairness and empathy for our fellow men we cannot avert our eyes from the crimes against humanity these monsters are committing. Assad has gone beyond the point of any return to civilized governance. He knows it, and we know it. It is time, therefore, that we deal with him as the criminal he has become. We had acted with resolve against a similar criminal in Libya and we should act with resolve against this one in Syria now. Russia and China would be prudent to again stay out of the way. Enough is enough. Once more, the world has to do what simply needs to be done.
