    A commentator on tv says we should use cruise missiles to take out military airports and SAM sites. I agree. Despite Mr. Putin and Iran wanting to use Syria as the new “East Germany”, the USA, Europe, and the Middle East Emirates are long overdue in taking some kind of action to suppress Assad’s actions against his own people.
    I just wonder how long it will be before we have to make a similar decision about Egypt.

    He backed himself into a corner with the “Red Line” statement. He (or one of his advisors) should have seen that coming.

    A good number of people calling for action in Syria don’t actually give the slightest damn about Syrians. They just want this administration bogged down in a foreign conflict so that they can say “See? He did it too! Now stop complaining about Afghanistan and Iraq!”.

    I’m willing to bet that there will be some kind of military action by the US and others in the next couple of weeks. And I’m willing to bet it won’t make a lot of difference.

    Logically if we ramp up another military action, it might help revoke the “Sequester process”, that’s due to downsize the military. Which means less dollars for the industrial complex that supports the military.

    I agree that it is good to call Obama out on this – he made a statement he has not been able to back up, and it is seriously hurting his reputation and (by extension) our country’s.
    But the question is, what should he do? Invade and give Muslim extremists more fuel for their hatred? Send more weapons into that hands of those who will turn around and be just as cruel as Assad towards non-Muslims and Muslims who follow the wrong Imam or tradition? Send a “Death Squad” of SEALs to take Assad out and leave the chaos of rebuilding to the Syrians?
    I don’t know the answer myself, but it does seem that we at least finally learned not to dive in head first into a Middle Eastern conflict.

    How much blood is on the U.S. hands do to inaction? I know we can’t help everyone and we have the right to ask others to do more but still Syria is over the top. We don’t have to send troops in we can take out part of their air force.

    Of course, an alternative solution would be to do nothing. Sheath the sword, pack the military equipment, and save billions of dollars for infrastructure repair. Syria can go to hell on its own without our help or treasure.

    Seems like the cons here never met a conflict they didn’t like.

    You forget that this is a result of Obamas “Arab Spring” propaganda. There’s more than one way to meddle.

    “A commentator on tv says we should use cruise missiles to take out military airports and SAM sites.”

    It would take more than cruise missiles & drones to knock out Syrian air power. The Syrian government’s artillery is their biggest weapon against the rebels, & it would take a sustained campaign to eliminate that threat. The cost would run into billions of dollars.

    Given the situation in Egypt, I’m not sure there is much interest to do something about Syria, in the neighboring countries.

    Some Rebublicans say “intervene, arm the rebels, set up no fly zone; Obama is weak”. Other Republicans say “It’s none of our business; don’t US money overseas, unconstitutional; Obama is aggressive”. The rest have no idea.

    Republicans are clueless. They have no credibility in foreign affairs. They need to restrict their efforts to voter suppression in North Carolina.
