  1. That is very good news!

    Than you all parties for helping to end this mess.

    Can we please withdraw the troops Obama sent to fight in this war now?

  2. If the rebels really want to spare the civilian population, all they have to do is either surrender or pull out of the civilian occupied areas. If you revolt against the government and are not successful, civilians will die. Just ask the residents of Atlanta after Sherman.

    President Bashar al-Assad, like President Lincoln, has the right to keep his country intact if he can. While their policies certainly differ, each President had to deal with breakaway states, and chose force rather than let them leave.
