I'd like to start this by asking a very simple and straight forward question. "Is regime change in Syria so important that you would let your family, neighbors and yourself die for it?" That's the question. I told you it was simple. Simple that is, if you give a yes or no to the question.

I don't believe that you would get a yes or no from anyone in the government. They don't work that way. Here's another question for them:

"Do you honestly believe we could "win" a nuclear war with Russia or China or both?"

They won't answer that one either. Still, they apparently believe that they can. If they didn't believe a nuclear war was "winnable", they wouldn't bring us this close to one.  Am I being honest here? Think about it (yes, here I go again, asking people to think).

I don't believe that Syria is worth sacrificing everything for. In fact, I don't believe Syria is worth sacrificing anything for. I think that a majority of Americans would agree with me.  So, why is Syria the focus of American diplomacy (or lack thereof)?

Now that should be the question we should be asking of ourselves and our government. Obama and company should understand something:  Most Americans don't care about Assad staying in power or stepping aside. In fact, many Americans couldn't find Syria on a globe.  So why should we risk our lives for a country most of us know nothing about?

The simple answer to that question is because our government wants us to. Because they say we should care, we pretend that we do. We don't. We didn't care yesterday, we don't care today, and we certainly won't care tomorrow. That's the truth. If you really care about Syria or the people that live within its borders, you are a very small minority.

How can I say this with such conviction? It's easy. I'm going to give you a list of countries that kill its people on a regular basis.

1.        Myanmar (Burma).

2.        Columbia

3.        People's Republic of the Congo

4.        People's Republic of China

5.        Bahrain
