A free lesson for all

What is happening in and to Syria these days reminds me of what was happening in and to Iraq in the early 90's. A dictatorship with the same ideological background (The Arab Ba'th Socialist Party) is messing around! And the International Community is trying its best to find a peaceful solution for it.

Almost everyone is aware of what is Syria doing to sabotage the political process in Iraq and it's bad and destructive role in Lebanon. And the problem is that it don’t seems like they have learned anything from the Iraqi lesson. The free world was sharp about it and made it clear "no room for trouble makers".

Well Libya learned the lesson well and gave up everything "as it seems" and started to reap the benefits.
I really don’t get it why fighting the free world? I guess the best way I can think of it is the ideological difference between Liberty and dictatorship. And I don’t think I need to explain much about this point.

Anyway my point is there is no use of fighting the whole world and its no shame of accepting the fact that you are wrong and the time has come to start correcting things.
The free world is determined on ending terrorism and its up to them (Syrian) to choose on which side they will be, but they have to keep in their minds that the time is running fast and tomorrow will be harder than today, and I really wish that they can take a close and considerate look on what happened to Iraq since 1990 and they will be blind not to see what there future will be.

Hi Sooni. I heard about your blog over at Iraq the Model. This is the first time I've visited. I'll be back, for sure.

Unfortunately, like Iraq under Saddam, I think there are people in Syria who have been "feathering their nests" without thought for others. It is hard to get them to give that up.

I think that it's simply a matter of power. Dictators and gangsters are pretty much the same. They operate out of animal cunning and a willingness to hurt people. Your post was interesting and intelligent.
I posted a cartoon/commentary on this same topic from an Israeli point of view. A link is here. By the way, your photos of Iraqis on election day were wonderful. Thanks,

Shalom, Salaam, Peace,
