October 20, 2011 will go down in history as the day Gadaffi died. Another brutal dictator was fund holed up in a hole in the ground (like Saddam). Gadaffi was found in a sewage pipe. Not a single US soldier lost his life. Not a single NATO soldier lost his life. This is how you fight the war of the future. Predator drones, satellite intelligence, precise air strikes, cell phone cameras, and special forces.
With Gaddafi checked off the world's To Do list, the next dictator on the list is Syria's Bashar Assad. NATO can now focus on an appropriate military intervention to eliminate Assad. NATO will have to work closely with the Arab league and other important groups in the middle east.
The Syrian people have been asking for a No-Fly Zone for the past two months to no avail. Perhaps the time has come.

The Assads are liquidating their assets and selling all of their properties in anticipation of an end to their rule in Syria. Or are they liquidating their assets to fund their war against the Syrian people? You decide.

The Syrian people are calling for a no fly zone in Syria. Because morale is down among the infantry in the Syrian Army, Assad is sending in the air force and helicopters to bombs and shell protesters and their respective cities. Of course, he is trying to inflame sectarian violence by only bombing the Sunni parts of cities. The Syrian people aren't falling for this sectarian trap and are united against Assad.
NATO needs to seriously consider a no fly zone in Syria now. The death toll is going to skyrocket!

Statement by the Press Secretary on Violence in Syria
We condemn the assassination of Kurdish opposition leader Mishaal al-Tammo and the vicious and unprovoked assault against prominent opposition figure Riad Sayf in Syria. The United States strongly rejects violence directed against peaceful oppositionists wherever it occurs, and stands in solidarity with the courageous people of Syria who deserve their universal rights. These acts lay bare again that the Assad regime’s promises for dialogue and reform are hollow. Today’s attacks demonstrate the Syrian regime’s latest attempts to shut down peaceful opposition inside Syria. President Assad must step down now before taking his country further down this very dangerous path.

Abdul Fattah Jandali, a young Syrian Muslim immigrant in Wisconsin, never met his son Steve Jobs. When a baby was born to the 23-year-old Jandali -- now known as John -- and his 23-year-old German-American girlfriend, Joanne Schieble, in 1955, there was no chance he'd be able to grow up with his biological parents.
Joanne, who belonged to a white, conservative Christian family could not convince her parents to marry an Arab, a Muslim, according to Jandali, who called her father "a tyrant" in a New York Post interview in August 2011. In fact, according to Jandali, she secreted off from Wisconsin to liberal San Francisco to sort out the birth and adoption without letting either him or her parents know.

Zainab Alhusni was a poor seamstress in Syria. She was loved by all her neighbors and friends. In a tragic and horrific turn of events, she has become a symbol of the cruelty gripping Syria.
Alhusni was only 18 when she stepped away from her Homs residence last month to buy groceries. Her family never again saw her alive. She was whisked away by Syrian security forces to coax the surrender of her activist brother, and ended up beheaded and dismembered, a neighbor, activists and human rights groups say. This is one of the most brutal and disturbing cases of torture in Syria to date.
