the actions against syria and iran are purely political. it has nothing to do with how the gov treats the people. in syria news is falsified to decieve people. and in iran, its in broad daylight. one has to think before jumping on a bandwagon. "how has iran hurt me?" "how has syria hurt its people?" if the syrians really hated assad, the revolt wouldnt have lasted 2 years, with hundreds of million dollars worth of weapons to the rebels, and foreign fighters, and sanctions on assad's government? answer is, rebels ARE a minority, and are having trouble shaking the government. mubarak was hated by his people, he didnt bother fighting, he knew he wouldnt last a week. ghaddafi wouldnt have been toppled if he wasnt bombed day and night by europe. there are realities, and on the other there is western media. one should know where to look for facts.
