This is absurd, comparing Syria to Iraq. Out of the blue, George W. Bush 
organized a full-scale invasion to topple Saddam Hussein and put a 
Shi'ite bourgeois government in power. After 70,000 deaths and open 
resistance to the dominant fighting forces in Syria as "Jihadist", does 
anybody in their right mind think that the U.S. is about to intervene in 
that fashion? The main intervention is coming from Russia and Iran. 
Without their support, the Baathist dictatorship would have caved long ago.
