    President Assad of Syria, please step down as a president of Syria to make peace and order in your country. Let the people of Syria be free and safe. Love your country because at the end you will just regret what you did about your country.

    I is now finally time. Will we fall by the wayside of former great empires? 1/2 wars include Korea, Vietnam, Afganistan, and so on. Our "leaders" wish to schnitzel a little off the top and leave some for a future day. That is not how this nation of immigrants became great. We were European immigrants who wanted to build a strong America, not takers. As Robin Trower puts it so accurately, "Takers get the honey, givers sing the blues."

    Wake up America! Our congress threw us under the bus 30 years ago. THAT is why there is a 2nd Amendment. Back in those days, corrupt governments had to be overthrown from within. Or, just roll over and grab a rice bowl - cause that's all you'll be eating.

    This is why there will not be a WWIII, muslims vs west, as some have predicted. They can't even stop fighting among themselves. They'll never even get Israel down, in fact.

    It's very interesting that TV cameras seem to be in exactly the right place at just the right time to record explosions in the Middle East. Mmmmm.

    Any Government or regime can be taken down and overturned, the average person does not know and much less understand this but its in the history of Kings, the reason all nations have a defense system is not to protect their citizens, rather to defense their political governing system from their own citizens from overturning the government in power, and second other political systems from ruling their people. No country defense system is actually intended to protect its citizens.

    President Assad, please abdicate your position as the president of Syria. Your people are crying for you to step down. With all due respect, please grant them the peace and stability of government that they deserve. As humans, it is within their rights to live. Your land is now stained with the blood of innocents. Not only that, but people who have no involvement with this are becoming casualties of war.

    President Assad of Syria, your people deserve a peaceful country free of bloodshed. With all due respect, please step down from the presidency. The people of Syria have a right to live in peace and harmony, but the suffering of countless civilians and soldiers proves that they do not have it. Give them peace. Give them stability.

    President Assad of Syria, the people of Syria are not your people but the people of the land they live on, surrender your self to the gates of hail to pay for your deeds, or the the Russians to live. Russians are ready to take over your country and they will.

    President Bashar al-Assad, all human beings have civil rights which include the assurance of peoples' physical and mental integrity, life and safety. These are human rights, among many others, that you violate with each and every second you remain seated in the presidency, with each and every act committed on your orders. In the name of democracy, PLEASE. STEP. DOWN.

    Pres. Bashar al-Assad, please step down from your position. Many people lost their lives and are suffering from the abuse that is being experienced in Syria. Bring back their lives by stepping down from your position. They deserve to be free and live peacefully.
