The EU raised holy hell when the mess in Libya threatened their oil supply, and the US joined in.

Syria does the same thing as Gaddafi was doing in Libya, and everyone sits on their hands being nice.

While I don't think military action is the answer (we've GOT to learn to NOT bring in the guns) ... surely every day since this began our govt should have been making headline statements condemning this despicable behavior. Instead we heard platitudes about "the war on women". And the R's were just as bad for not emphasizing the plight of the Syrian populace.

Finally, the US and EU are sending their Syrian ambassadors home. However, the Syrian ambassador to Austria gets to stay since he holds a UN position there as well. Since the UN is being as vocal about the Syrian situation as the EU and US, shouldn't they agree to send the Syrian guy home, too? Replace him with someone from another country?
