Every night there on the news, you can see the slaughter on the streets of Syria – its roads sloshed in blood. And you can hear the pitiful cries for help to stop the carnage. Yet by and large the West does nothing.
Oh some little things. The United States closed its embassy in Damascus. Britian also recalled its envoy to Syria. Canada? Canada is standing pat amid the bloodshed. Our ambassador is staying put.
The NDP says its time to recall our ambassador from Syria.
The Liberals say we should keep our embassy open because it plays a role in protecting Canadian lives.
Should the world, including Canada, stand idly by while Syria goes up in death and smoke?
Should the West consider military intervention to stop the slaughter?
Should Canada break diplomatic relations with Syria?
What do you think?
