Sounds Like Civil War

Inside Syria: Soldiers defecting to join rebels - CBS News
[Members of the Free Syrian Army] are former Syrian soldiers. They say they refused orders to fire on their own countrymen, and so decided to take up arms against the Assad regime.

The commander spoke off-camera, for his own security. He said, "We are fighting those who have made our children orphans and our wives, widows."
No way to tell how many there are, but what started as protests is turning into a full-on civil war in Syria.

So tell me again why NATO had a duty to protect civilians in Libya, and NATO (or anybody for that matter) has no duty to protect civilians in Syria. Couldn't be the dependence on Libyan oil? Seems like "No Blood For Oil" was a big statement when a Republican was in the White House.
