Sadly, that didn't work as I expected, huh? I guess the world doesn't have the attention span you wish it had. A crime is a crime is crime....whether committed by Syria, Israel or freakin' Micronesia for cryin' out loud. Your logic to turn attention to Syria is equivalent to a Rapist trying to turn attention away from himself and towards a serial killer. They're both pretty horrible beings. Do we really need to weigh which one is LESS horrible?
