LOL, what law?

The country is experiencing a civil war, and it is not as if syria was governed by the rule of law before the uprising; the rules were whatever the criminal mafia gang running the country led by the dog assad decided they were going to be that day.

What is it going to take for those priests to be rescued, and for justice to be served?

He's not even the most powerful person in the USA. Most foreign leaders view him as nothing more then a wet noodle.

That's quite a leap. Kidnapping of two bishops in Syria to the H-bomb in the US...?!?!

What's so special about those particular 2 men? What about all the 1000's of innocent civilian people who have been kidnapped, tortured or killed?
By October 2012, up to 28,000 people had been reported missing, including civilians forcibly abducted by government troops or security forces. According to the UN, about 1.2 million Syrians have been displaced within the country. To escape the violence, as many as 1.4 million Syrian refugees have fled to neighboring countries. In addition, tens of thousands of protesters have been imprisoned and there were reports of widespread torture and psychological terror in state prisons. By Feb 2013, according to various opposition activist groups, between 68,440 and 82,130 people have been killed, of which about half were civilians.
