I am pessimistic about their chances of success, but if the presence of UN monitors means the bloodshed will become less in Syria then I believe it is a good thing.

On another note, somebody who should know better sarcastically asked me how I can change my politics from supporting the "resistance" to opposing it bitterly because of the Syrian revolution. I say that if the murder of over ten thousand people by a tin pot dictator is not enough to change your politics then I don't know what will. What is truly astounding is that I ever thought that I had something in common with such people.

I say it now clearly, if your compass for what is right or wrong is some "cause" or ideology, then you are on the way to self-destruction. Dogma can never substitute for reason when it comes to morality.
