Pat, I don't agree with your stance against Israel but on this issue you are correct. The comment Ryan made during the debate last night was just mistifying! What business is it of ours what Syria does? Let those people do what we did during the American Revolution! Stand up and fight or live under tyrannical rule. We are broke, broke, broke. We need to mind our own business. Secondly, if we did entervine in this situation who would come in to replace Assad, The Muslum Brotherhood, are they any different? We would be giving the lives of our brave men and women to what end? America needs to wake up!
