    Whatever we do it will be a fiasco.

    Not in the military sense, those guys can hit targets with precision. But after. Obama made the mistake of saying there was that red line to cross. Once someone crosses it, you’re stuck with your words.

    I don’t mind people like him not knowing anything about anything. I object to their posting opinions about everything.

    So how many dead Syrian children does it take? Oh, but they aren’t our children, are they? On the other hand, what does it take before the rest of the world learns to say something besides “Hey, USA, go fix that problem!”

    The question is not how many dead Syrian children it takes – it’s whether intervention can make a meaningful difference. Given that much of the opposition are radical Islamicists, even if some limited airstrikes made a dent in the regime’s strength, a regime change may not be an improvement – it might just substitute a radical Islamic theocratic dictatorship for the present secular one.

    I love Clyde.
    He wouldn’t accidentally kill more children to punish the ones who killed the previous children in a country which does not want our presence as it slaughters its members from all directions and for many reasons which won’t go away.
    Remember when we stepped in to stop the slaughter of Muslims in Kosovo upon which they proceeded to slaughter the Serbs?
    Now, if Clyde could figure out a way to steal from them…..

    Not about the strip: But does Russia’s proposal to defuse the situation remind anyone else of JFK’s handling of the Cuba missile crisis in 1962 (if you were born yet)?
    JFK set a red line, Russia met him eye to eye and toe to toe. Then, “because we came on with authority”, backed down.

    Clyde’s view represents the isolationist view that was prevalent in this country prior to December 7, 1941. We blissfully ignored the events in Europe and the beginnings of the holocaust only to be forced in events for which we paid dearly as a nation.
    This does not mean that we need to take direct action in Syria, but we need to be aware of what is going on over there and the nature of all the participants in that civil war. We have intervened in the events of other nations in the past and regretted the results. Out our ignorance in the past we had supported a revolt in Cuba and resulted in a more repressive government led by Fidel Castro.
    As a nation we need to be aware of what is going on around the world, but remember that not everyone that would accept our aid will show gratitude or be friendly with us after they get what they want.

    That’s what I’ve been thinking. Thanks for saying it.

    I hear people saying that a failure to attack Syria at this point would undermine US credibility but I read the word “credibility” as a code for “pride.” I’m pretty sure that the guys who threw together the US Constitution did their best to avoid a situation in which the new country would get into wars over wounded pride. They had seen plenty of those started by European monarchs over the centuries and had hoped for something better.
    Pride is OK but it should be tempered with humility. No president should ever be considered infallible.
