Headline: “Syria: West Looking for Excuse to Send in Troops”

Reality: Have you people been paying any attention to what is happening in Syria at the moment?  If the West wanted to send in troops, the process of ‘looking’ for an excuse wouldn’t take long.  If anything, the issue runs in the other direction: Given the multitude of excuses for intervention which the Syrian regime keeps offering the world, why hasn’t the world intervened?  Do we not care about humanitarian issues in Syria? Are Syrian civilians somehow less important than others?  Why is the Syrian government getting away with what it is doing?  You know, real questions.
