A group of prominent intellectuals, commentators and policymakers are calling on President Obama to act more assertively in Syria to help end the violence there and remove President Bashar al-Assad from power.
The letter was organized by the neoconservative groups Foreign Policy Initiative and the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and signed by 56 mostly conservative foreign policy experts and commentators, including Liz Cheney, Karl Rove, Randy Scheunemann, former Iraq administrator L. Paul Bremer, Commentary editor John Podhoretz, Weekly Standard Editor William Kristol and ex-New Republic editor Martin Peretz.
Full letter text and signatories after the jump.

Not one real conservative among them. BS, let them fight, it is none of our business.
Man, I miss those ol' Shah of Iran friendly to America dictator types.
Oh yeah, I went there!
I see NO Conservatives on this list, just a bunch of WORTHLESS Neo-Cons and RINOs and GOP-e ers!
As usual, the neocon list of interventionists and nation builders.
Go away you guys. We are sick of ya.
Screw Syria. Those rinos are nuts.
I’m pretty sure they are also on the list of people who would make money off of this action.
BINGO. You are right. Not a conservative among them.
If the Saudis want Assad and his Iranian buddies off their borders let THEM pay the money to do it and let THEIR boys die over there. Let THEM go whining and pleading to the ISRAELIs to take out the Iranian Nuclear facilities.
BESIDES, if you REALLY want Assad out, attack Iran and destroy their military capabilities AND their nuclear sites and Assad will crumble like a piece of cheap Devil’s Food Cake. THEY are shoring him up.
Conservatives? Don’t think so. Not our problem.
