GW isn't president, BO is. I think he'll be a lot smarter. I agree I don't want any MF war. But if there's truly a multinational effort, we should support it in some way. That's a far cry from boots on the ground as McCain wants. And our support must have limits $ wise. W already broke the bank with his 2 wars, and economic collapse!
I definitely don't want American boots on the ground, or even American planes and missiles. Let Europe handle it this time. Then we can pat THEM on the back, and talk shyte about them afterwards. I am not saying something shouldn't be done, I just think it's finally time for the US to take a back seat and see what others can do for a change.

Syria needs to take care of her own business. But, just thinking now, we do need to publicly discus it otherwise others will think we care more about what our singers do or if how Diana died or whether Christie is too fat instead of Foriegn affairs.
If we don't count our blessings We are just wasting our time
Agreed - I just hope BO sees it that way and decides to walk away or do a token measure to "check the box". It's VERY risky with no payoff, and 90% of a "no win" or lose situation. I feel for the Syrian civilians but we cannot afford to be the World's policeman... there are dozens of brutal dictators around the world, we can't even afford to take 1 on ! Wish W had realized that... his 2 wars really put us in a box !! What a dumb fokker !!
I think the use of chemical weapons is the game changer. If the US & allies turn the other cheek it shows those extremists that the use of these weapons empowers them. If Syrian government uses them on their own people wihout consequence then where's the deterent to use them again and again and against others?
An extremist with a cache of nerve gas or biologics is a different thing than an extremist with a dozen RPGs, a thousand machetes or a suicide vest or car trunk full of conventional explosives.
Not saying the US alone needs to be the world's policeman, saying that the US and the rest of the modern world (hopefully someday including Russia and China) are all in this together.
