When Are NATO Going Into Syria

We all know that they sprung into action when Bengazi in Libya was surrounded by Gadaffi's forces and an ultimatum was given.

My question is, seeing as Assad's regieme has given a 72 hour deadline for people in Homs to stop protesting or else an offensive will begin.

Where the fu*k are NATO!

Maybe it is more a job for the Arab Summit.

I think Nato are entitled to do as they see fit, and chose when and where to get involved.

Do you not think it's hypocritical though Frodo? Gadaffi had a more legitimate target with Bengazi because the rebels there were armed and trying to overthrow him by force and NATO went in.

Syria are killing unarmed protestors.

*edit: there is a small armed force in Homs, so I guess the paralell is there between it and Bengazi.

They're not the world Police, they're here to defend Europe and North America.

From Libya?

edit: That doesn't make sense. Libya posed no threat to the NATO countries Frodo.

Whatevs

Anyone smell a rat with those bombings today? How very convenient for Assad to justify his campaign when he can show this to the Arab League investigators.

I don't think it's any of the West's business. It's not like Libya because of the sectarian element, namely that the regime and security forces are dominated by a sect called the Alawis, and consequently there is a danger that victory for the Opposition would result in a slaughter of Alawis comparable to the impending oppression of the Iraqi Sunnis.

I disagree. It is comparable to Libya. Do you not think that all of the tribes in and around the Sirte area of Libya are in for some serious payback?

It's the same formula over and over. Minority dictators propped up by the west when it suits and then toppled when it suits.

Who knows if NATO will go in. There isn't much strategic importance to going in so that will most likely trump the moral duty given the precedent set in Libya.

When civilians are being killed in exchange for peaceful protest then it should be the West's business.
