    I have a question for Heng – Saudi Arabia is once again asking for “international intervention” as they did on Libya. There are others doing the same, even Heng. Yet you will not see any of their military get involved. Heng, maybe you should put up a son to get shot at – naw, no way. Let America do it- stick it pal.

    Mr. Heng has a good point, if we allow chemical weapons now how long till they are used here? It has been said before but a lot of people don’t it that believes it, by looking the other way, we invite all this on ourselves. People outside this country see it, I don’t know why we can’t.

    @lopaka

    That is the only honest point I have heard for not going in. We do take on to much of the responsibility.

    The USA is the world storm trooper. Usually leaves only bad things in its wake under the guise of Democracy and Freedom. Just look at Iraq.

    The USA refused to sign a treaty against using and selling land minds and cluster munitions.

    We need to out source the profiteers. Syria sounds like a nice place to send them.

    It was so great before, it was better off when we were there.

    Aside from moral and ethical considerations, and just based on common sense and pragmatism alone, why would the US want to “kick this beehive”? What is the upside for the US?

    The downside is not pretty:

    • Fighting between the rebels and a weakened Syrian gov’t is likely to intensify because the playing field is more level.
    • If the Syrian gov’t falls, we don’t know what will replace it.
    • Fighting may spread to neighboring Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq.
    • Hezbollah may take advantage of the distractions and lob more missiles into Israel.
    • Israel is likely over-react, which will just add fuel to the fire.
    • The price of oil is likely to shoot up due to all the fighting, and weaken the fragile US economic recovery.

    I just don’t see what the US has to gain.

    It would be good if the middle eastern countries would realize that it is not the west’s responsibility to police their governments or people. Where is Saudi Arabia in all this? They’ve been big on sponsoring terrorism. Why aren’t they stepping up to the plate here.

    Hmm, yes, that vast military power, Singapore, should lead with all their millions of troops and sophisticated weaponry!! Right, Ima.

    Maybe, but more likely maybe not. Let’s ask some of the troops that didn’t make it home whole, or not at all. Why so many suicides? Let’s ask the family members of the troops that did’t make it home. I’m more concerned about them than the INTERNAL war in Syria, Iraq or Viet Nam. It’s their busines, not ours. WWJD?

    Actually yes. No terrorists, no car bombs, no religious fundamentalist groups armed to the teeth. Before the USA changed sides, Iraq was very western. Women had rights and dress the way the wanted. Now just religious fundamentalists enforce laws they use to control women. Our gift to Iraq.

    What does. C and Paste so that I know what you are asking about in your supercilious way.

    The USA is the global Storm Trooper.
