WASHINGTON — The Obama administration, hoping that the conflict in Syria has reached a turning point, is considering deeper intervention to help push President Bashar al-Assad from power, according to government officials involved in the discussions.
While no decisions have been made, the administration is considering several alternatives, including directly providing arms to some opposition fighters.

It appears the Obama Administration is finally, and hopefully this time it is more then lip service, getting ready to make a major move in Syria. I and others following this crises have been waiting on this for many months. We have been advocating for more action in Syria since very early on but have not found the political will power from our political leaders and foreign political leaders for real action. I guess the world is finally coming to a realization Bashar will not be toppled soon without international involvement. It will be a glorious day when this thug and his regime taste the bitter reality of long overdue justice. May the world hasten the day this regime falls. What one sows one must also reap, and oh what a dark and terrible day will befall Bashar and his thugs when it finally comes time to reap the fruits of their crimes. That day draws nigh, Bashar!!!
