Most Americans think the US should leave Syria alone

Maybe you're surprised at this, but I'm not. Most American voters do not want their government to get involved in the ongoing violence in Syria.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 20% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the United States should get more involved in the Syrian crisis. Fifty percent (50%) say America should leave the situation there alone, although that’s down six points from February. Thirty percent (30%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The voters are right. Had the US gotten involved a year ago, something might have been accomplished. But now, the dominant parties in the Syrian opposition are the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda. They are no better than Assad and may even be worse.

Leading from behind brings change.

I think it is because what's emerging in these countries, like Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, even Afghanistan, looks like a repeat of Iran. And that turned out so well./ I think people aren't sure that the U.S. doing something would actually make things better. (BTW, regardless of the decades of Leftist press, Americans don't want to be in charge of other countries. When the U.S. military shows up, it is because someone thinks that would be better than whatever unchecked slaughter is going on.)

The U.S. is a bully country. Leave Syria alone! I know because I am Syrian. Most people there are in support of the gov, but you do not hear this with our baised media!
