Our government has helped to get rid of the leader of Egypt and Libya. And now we are trying like heck to get the leader of Syria out. Why is that? What did these men do that was so horrible? I thought I was keeping up with world events, but I have never really understood this. And I can't really find an answer. Can anyone clarify this situation so that I can understand it better?

You might start here: http://www.npr.org/search/index.php?searchinput=Assad Bunch of different stories linked there, including interviews with por-Assad Syrians.
And here's one sample from another source: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/syria-civil-war-bashar-alassads-fighters-accused-of-massacre-in-banias-8603995.html "Activists say thousands of Sunni Muslims have fled the Mediterranean city of Banias, in Syria, after reports of killings by pro-government militia."
