Why not much action on syria? a cynic would note that the pic here pic.twitter.com/QmkTqxmAgJ explains all. Refugees to "irrelevant" countries

My point here is simply--you might expect more intervention by Western countries if they were feeling the brunt of the refugee flow. They would act to end the conflict, or try to, to limit the flow. Remember France and Libya? Yeah. So, the problem for Syria's people is that they are not making it far enough to countries that could leverage NATO and the US into acting.
Not a great New Year's resolution to resolve to flee farther, is it?
