    For those too young to remember, Syria is part of the Fertile Crescent, which can be one of the richest agricultural areas on earth (but mostly isn’t, since modern agricultural methods are only used West of the Jordan). France, Britain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey all want a piece. And Israel thinks the French will end up in charge (again; or if not the French, the Ottomans) and they’ll be better off, so also demands that Obama decapitate the Syrian state.


    The banned site Arab Times shows a depleted chemical weapon, stamped, ‘MADE IN SAUDI ARABIA’. Best guess, the mercenary army from Saudi Arabia brought chemical weapons, inspired by Obama’s promise to send US troops in for regime change if they were used. Obama didn’t say ‘if al-Assad used chemical weapons,’ he just said ‘if chemical weapons were used.’


    So the Saudi mercenaries used chemical weapons in Syria, and Obama is honour bound to force regime change in Syria, since he swore the oath.

    Syria’s chemical weapons (WMDs) were shipped to him by Saddam Hussein
    --
    Yes they have satellite videos of the convoys leaving Iraq going to Syria.Strange how the left wing news nerds swept that under the rug and ignored the chemical and biological weapons that were found.IED’s have been found with artillery projectiles filled with Sarin gas.The way that they found them was there were Iraqi passers by laying in the road and on the sidewalk that passed out from the leaking gas.But the left won’t report that sort of thing.

    I would bet he will. Will you criticize him if he does?

    I’ll admit it. This is one damn tough call to make. Nobody wants troops sent in to a civil war that does not appear to pose a threat to America.
    On the other hand, regimes across the world seem to already view us as a paper tiger the last few years. Lots of bark about red lines, yet never a bite. This opens up numerous possibilities of aggression by unfriendly nations without any fear of repercussions.
    O applied for this job and now he needs to show that he’s qualified by making the right decisions.

    Should be interesting to see how zero, I mean O, handles this… Will there be an official announcement of WMDs

    Will you support him if he does? Or will this be another “illegal war”? And what will be the difference, if not?

    @DGF999

    I have to admit that there are some problems for which I do not have solutions, and this is one of them. I honestly don’t know what the right course of action is. I can say that I’m pretty sure a major invasion with a lot of US boots on the ground would be a bad idea. My hunch is that a limited action wouldn’t do any good, and anything more than that would cause more harm than good, but I could be wrong. As for the legality, I’m no expert, but my understanding is that a limited strike would be legal without consulting Congress. I’m not saying I would approve, but I don’t think it would be illegal.

    @lonecat

    Don’t you think it would be a good thing if we could admit that for some situations there are no good answers? I agree with your assessment of the options for the Syrian problem, and I rather think that there is no solution available, at least in the short run.

    @martens misses all her friends

    Yes, but there are probably two different situations: (1) there is no good answer; (2) there is a good answer, but I don’t know it, and maybe no one else does either. (Some famous math problems belong in the second group.)

    I have yet to see any proof that those convoys were what you say they are. Seems weird that Saddam would disarm in preparation for being invaded. Which he didn’t. He didn’t have any viable WMD’s, the UN took care of that long before the two invasions by the USA and others.

    Funny how the US is so particular in how a govt kills its rebelling citizens. Why only some poison gases but not others like the so-called “tear gas used here.”
