    (from your link)

    They can warn Assad all they like but they are lions without teeth. It's difficult to affect a regime change when it's two biggest buddies are China and Russia. Assad is basically thumbing his nose at the West. His downfall will come at the actions of his own generals. Once they see the gig is up they will either overthrow him themselves or eliminate him, or send him packing into exile.

    laugh o' the day :D

    oh for the love of it all! steppenwolf, that's identical to saying all christians hate democrats. this is such a blanket statement that it cannot be true. yes, you will find some people that express hatred for the individuals in a certain system. you will also find some who detest the policies & not the humans in them. there is an extremely broad range of feelings out there between any two groups (i.e. democrats with neutral feelings & vice versa)

    perhaps too much digression here.. but there's also the term *haters* in pop culture, which some use as an affectionate expression regarding stating your minor annoyances in life. i'm assuming you meant hate in regards to the dictionary definition.
