I agree BUT we can't afford to go it alone- Brits said NO, expect the French andGermans to do the same. IF we did anything alone, we'd be bluffing (we're exhausted $ and people wise**) and they know it. And the Syrians would either repeat the incident = poke in the eye, OR get Russia or Iran involved and we'd be trumped any way. Because of the 10 yr old BS in Iraq and Afghanistan, we cannot afford to do anything that would make a significant difference. **GW 'shot our wad' 10 years ago !! that really boxed us in for future threats. Sorry that's a sad reality.
I believe without any hesitation that Israel and the US will find solidarity in any action against Syria.
And Russia and China already support Iran and I bet they know that Syria isn't the endgame, a non-nuclear Iran is.
Obama has no options here. Congress will politicize any action, and CNN is already prepping the Super 3D graphics to show how things blow up. Already the progressive left and the rightwing wackos are acting like drama queens as if bombing has already occured. Teapartiers and Rightwing radio is calling Obama weak and a war monger … doing their best to blur history (as only they can do) and pin all of Bush's Iraq bullsh!t as Obama's recent actions ….
… and if the worst happens and we do end up in a military conflict with Syria, Republicans will certainly think it's still the right thing to do to shut the government and default on the debt limit just to pour gasoline on the fire.
For once I agree with those on the right, who will hate Obama no matter what. We should not go in. I grieve for the Syrian people, but it will only create more horribleness in the near and far flung future. Why the right was so for Iraq and so against Syria, I don't know but..
