That exactly what I have been saying!
Although I care vary much about people caught up in a revolution and I'm all for sending medical/food aid to folks who need it, particulary the hundreds of thousands of refugees in the surrounding countries. But sending troupes, not a chance.
All that said, use WMDs, you die! No excuses!
We bomb him into the ground, send Seal Teams (ala Ben Laden) and do not stop until he is dead or turned over to the World Court.
I'm very supprised as some of the folks here who take the opinion that as long as they don't gas us or our friends, then Chemical Weapons are OK.
That has to be one of the most short sighted, selfish attitudes I have ever heard!
Lets move the UN to France and do what you suggested.Let's see - the US needs to take part in a conflict between two factions who hate us and make sure that one side wins but does so fairly and according to "the rules". And the reason is why? Do I care if they all dye duking it out - no. Oh and lets see the UN is for what? Oh I see we don't like the way they are handling things so we will just do it our way. Then why do we support the UN? What a bunch of bull. Syria is becoming just another place to waste our tax dollars for a no result finish. We have not been appointed God or Head of the World. If they threaten us, have at them. If they threaten our neighbors and allies ask if they want our help - if the answer is yes, have at them. This is a UN problem, as the world is structured today. Let them deal with it. If you don't like that change the system for a new direction but quit being the bully in someone else's fight!
