Fights for power


We have become witnesses of Quadaffi's abdications and decease. The western countries demand of Assad's resignation. They urge on the Syrian opposition to oust him by every available method. Thus, they can commit everything, because every perpetration or atrocity would be hung on blatant dictator.
That circumstance would shore the opposition up for victorious end. We cannot assess, even approximately, people who are susceptible to opposition appeals and therefore we cannot allege, that opposition expresses the opinion of Syrian people.These circumstances are rife for many similar cases. So, I put my questions: What means could be used against opposition by undemocratic rulers for protecting their powers, when the opposition break the legitimate laws of a state. Where is the brink between crimes against humanity and actions for upholding the public order for dictators?How many people must call for resignation and changes to invalid pending laws and customs?

Were the reigns of power acquired legally? Or by coup?
Having a long reign of power doesn't equate with a long reign of
popular power. Tyrants collect others around them who put themselves first before
the country. Tyrants rule by fear and oppression.

The two situations are similar but different. Libya is "across the street" from NATO. It was something like a neighborhood clean-up project.

Syria borders directly on NATO. It's as if one were living in an apartment building and the guy on the other side of the wall next-door is beating his wife every night and you're trying to read but you can't because of all the screaming and crying and wailing and you think, "This has got to stop."

Who are the judges? How we can define it? He is a tyrant, who 'rules by fear and oppression', or a popular ruler, who is adored by ordinary people, but just hated by bunch of provokers.This tiny group can just use the character of victim pestering the pending authority and acting out on the western society by
the stream of defamations and slander.

May be, it ain't the wife, but it's a shrew mother-in-law who howls without any tangible reason just for being victim in the neighbors view and inciting neighbors loathing against his son-in-law
