    Now, with 93,000 dead, maybe 100-150 are victims of Sarin, and we’re supposed to get involved? Very disappointed that now Obama seems to be pressured by the idiot Republicans to step into another quagmire. dumb, dumb, dumb.


    Yep let’s help them rebels with anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles, can anyone say “Taliban” and bin Laden? Right, like who’’s who in the Syrian zoo? Well nobody really knows, so lets do the stupid again..

    That politician just doesn’t want to be left out of the killing spree!
    He knows we can kill a lot more syrians, and even some of the young guys here,
    who only joined the army to get paid,
    and would probably be stupid homeless vets anyway.

    What a deal! He gets to kill some furinurs and some future homeless people too!

    “Pressured by the idiot Republicans”???

    First of all genius, he’s the Commander-In Chief!
    Second of all, is Bill Clinton a Republican now?

    I’m actually not in favor of getting directly involved in Syria. Assad is an evil dictator, but he might be the be lesser of two evils. Many of these rebels are radical Muslims who wouldn’t mind setting up a new Taliban capital. Secondly, we have a lot to lose and almost nothing to gain by going in. Israel came to this conclusion a while ago.
    Hopefully the prez isn’t using this as a Wag the Dog strategy.
    If he presents a good reason why we should put our troops into danger, then I will support him on this issue.

    Yes, 93,000 Syrian dead are more than 65,000 American dead. Post this cartoon the day after your own son deploys, Rob.

    The Cold War is BACK!
    Russia vs USA, Hezbollah vs. Israel, Iran vs. Western Europe, etc etc etc… and all brought to you in the strategically located nation of Syria.
    I have wished from the beginning of this that we would have done the same thing for the rebels of Syria that we did for Libya in providing intell and a no fly zone with the no fly zone provided by NATO and the Arab League. Didn’t work out that way.
    At this point, even if we help, the Syrians who might have liked us are already disgusted. We are in a no win situation from the start. I fear the weapons we provide to rebels may well be used against Israel or the USA.
    Assad deserves the same fate as Qaddafi and Saddam.
    Sadly,

    And the position of the other G5 or G7 countries on this is?

    Difficult.
    Get NATO involved?
    As past-prez Bill said today, getting involved in the Balkans was the right thing to do.
    Not getting involved will provide a lot of guilt.
    But yeah, difficult.

    Stay out of Syria! Or at least support Russia’s position, they seem to be getting it right concerning Islam more often than we are.

    We should protect our own borders and stay out of everyone else’s mess. Those people in the Middle East don’t know how to live in a civilized manner. They will kill each other until the end of time, and American and allied forces will be sacrificed for nothing. The people themselves will have to gain their own freedom.

    Isn’t the USA in enough places already?

    Military interventions cost large amounts of lives, be it the US army or Syrians, in truth a life is a life.

    It is greedy to decide to base decisions purely on a security benefit analysis, yet it is stupid to throw money into a burning hole it the hope that it goes out.

    There is no organized secular faction, if all of assad’s soldiers died today, the most likely result is a dictatorship and not a democracy, except in a country poorer and with greater divides than before.

    As there is nobody to support it would be better off to support people, With 5778 aircrafts bombing for 24 hours, neglecting the cost of bombs at an approximate cost of $ 15,000/ hour. (this is not an exact figure, an estimate based on composition some aircrafts are at little as 3000$ per hour, some $50,000/ hour)

    This comes to a total cost of about 2 billion dollars, never mind cost of bombs, or damage to buildings, and treats it as if bombings will not affect civilians.
    ***************************************************************
    Pros: Will damage assads regime

    Cons: risks harming more civilians, rebel factions in control may not be much better
    *****************************************************************
    By comparison Jordan and Turkey are willing to take in essentially the population of Syria, but lack the financial resources.


    Pros: Saves any civilians willing to exit the country, even if Syrian government is replaced with another despotic regime it will not affect them

    Cons: Syria as a country will likely be in suspension for many years for its status as a country.
    ****************************************************************

    The UN emergency camps in Syria are running under budget and still looking to face bankrupsy in the next few months, the UN is likely to try to further inject money into the fund but are experiencing difficulties

    Pros: saves civilians within the country, gets food to Syrians who as of this year couldn’t grow crops, medical aid helps to prevent disease breakouts within refugees, UN often provides more orderly transitions into other countries

    Cons: will take time for money to be processed.

    The later 2 seem more desirable to myself, the gift of the sword does not quell a famine

    Six hundred thousand people died in the American Civil War. Why, oh why, didn’t somebody intervene?!

    Obama needs a distraction from mushrooming scandals; but this is more like Bosnia/Serbia intervention, not the Air Force actions but the supplying weapons to the so-called Rebels….it is a Muslim against Muslim sectarian civil war…Sunni against Shiite. There is no possibility that the US can “liberate” as we did in Iraq. Democracy is anathema to islamists and Syria is Islamist to the core.
    The only possible “winner” will be the most determined Al Qaeda types, IMO. I don’t want the USA arming Al Qaeda, or any Taliban types, enforcing Shariah Laws.
    I suspect most Syrian Christians have already been killed or forced to flee the country.

    If the unrest in Syria is so bad, why isn’t any other nation on Earth doing something about it? Why are we supposed to be the world’s police force? We have our own problems. Let someone else pay for it for a change.
