Do you think it is right to seek US assistance to push for political change in Syria?

Members of the Syrian opposition who advocate U.S. help believe that Washington would offer it out of a geniune desire for democratic reform in the Arab world. Others worry that less attractive motives would drive U.S. offers to help.
