As best understood, unarmed civilians are no match for a well motivated M60 machine gun crew - or a squad of ppl smushing panzers.
The illegit regime in Syria may have disinvited their "insane candidacy" off UN's thug hugging Council on Human Rights yet that's not the only ironic twist of irony:
"...Since Syria's uprising began two months ago, the best estimate is that the Assad regime has slaughtered close to a thousand of its own citizens -- though the actual toll may well be much higher. Entire towns have been subjected to full-blown siege by Assad's crack military units.
"...Mass arrests and torture of innocents, including children, is in full swing. The savagery on display certainly exceeds anything witnessed in Egypt during the 18-day revolt that brought down Hosni Mubarak. Not even Muammar al-Qaddafi was able to inflict this level of human suffering before NATO warplanes felt compelled to stay his bloody hand.
Suriya al- Kubra!
So is it time to get mean and scary?
"...Sanctions will have little effect and the UN's Human Rights Council (boasting such members as North Korea, Iran, Cuba and Pakistan, as well as Russia and China) has already rejected a request by the High Commissioner of Human Rights for a full-scale international investigation. Instead, it is sending a ''fact-finding'' mission, because realpolitik dictates that tyranny in Syria is safer for the West than unpredictable developments which may follow its overthrow.
"...It is unlikely that the ''fact-finders'' (who will not include professional investigators or prosecutors) will find many people who dare to tell them the true facts, for fear of joining the 800 dead and 7000 already in prison. This is a weak-willed response that betrays the UN's ''responsibility to protect'' doctrine.
An Attorney Brigade will doubtless have the same effect as 44's Bystander in Chief maneuver back when Preacher Command enjoyed killing their own people on the streets of Tehran.
Syria - like Little Satan - punches far above her weight class in diplopolititary deals. Instead of cool stuff like Hooters, literacy rates off the charts or creating advanced avionics - Bashar Bay Bee follows poppa Assad's script utilizing asymmetrical assets creating a slave trading Syria, abusing Palestinians as a strategic minority resource, literally bombing an Arab sister's political cadre out of existence, fiddling about with new clear WMD witchcraft, hanging with the most wanted terrorists in the world while maybe or maybe not enabling official enemies like Hiz'B'Allah with wmd delivery systems and frightened of Facebook.
There are tons of reasons why the Lion of Syria and all his precious assets should be express laned smoldering to the same flamed out junk heap of the dead, defeated and discredited as Waffen Ss, Confederacy, 3rd Soviet Shock Army, kamikazes or Mahdi Army (v1.0 - 3.0). And to hop on the activity train right now.
And plenty of opportunities - from arming Syria's Kurdish cats for a Libya style revolution - all the way to annihilating Dr General President For Life Bashar's regime over a long week end with the threat of a violent and fast regime change.
