Because Syria borders Israel. Because Damascus is 300 miles from Jerusalem. I realize you have the cognitive abilities of a 3 year old, but map reading ain't that hard.

Pyongyang is only about 120 miles from Seoul, and they're running actual concentration camps up there.

The Israelis are perfectly capable of turning Syria into a glass parking lot if anyone is foolish enough to try that; there's no significant spillover.

If you want to intervene, look for an option that will reduce the overall level of violence rather than adding to it. The Saudis want the regime gone to help dial back Iranian influence, and they have enough hubris to think they can manage the resulting jihadist playground (of course, they do have experience with this). The Turks want it weakened as it challenges their influence, but they don't want it overthrown; that would encourage their own Kurdish separatists. Iran is sufficiently pragmatic to be negotiated with, which leaves only the Russians. Work out a solution that makes Russia look good and you'll have fewer dead children lying around.

"ST. PETERSBURG (The Borowitz Report)—Hopes for a positive G20 summit crumbled today as President Obama blurted to Russia’s Vladimir Putin at a joint press appearance, “Everyone here thinks you’re a jackass.”"







This is not. TRUE.
It was written by a satirist from the New Yorker.

You should get your facts straight, Hedge, before you post.

We'll see if Unhinged and Rickety's reading comprehension is up for the full article.

The point is not that a great power should not retaliate against grievances, only that when it preempts — and boldly starts an aggression for whatever cause, whether foolish or wise — it should be prepared to do so in such force that the attacked cannot retaliate, or at least realizes its planned retaliation would only ensure it more misery. Otherwise, poking an animal in the eye — no matter its apparent small size or lack of ferocity — will ensure some sort of response of who knows what caliber.

Nothing we’ve done in Afghanistan since 2009, in Iraq since 2009, in Libya since 2009, or in regard to Egypt since 2009, suggests that the United States is relentless, determined, dangerously unpredictable, and consistent in the pursuance of its regional and national interests.

Nothing the president has said or done in the present crisis suggests Churchillian resolve — whether the empty orders for Assad to abdicate, the pink red lines, the eleventh-hour bluster, the flip-flop on consulting Congress, the alienation of European allies, or the fobbing of responsibility for his empty threats onto the U.N. and the “world.” When on the eve of war, Obama blames Congress in 2012 campaign fashion, or David Axelrod sneers that Congress is the proverbial dog that caught the car, no one abroad sees unity of moral purpose.

Nothing the secretary of state has said or done — whether his past puerile flirtation with the murderous Assad regime, or his inconsistent positions on Iraq, or his recently undercut proclamations about imminent attacks — has impressed our enemies that he is not the sort to cross. Putin now openly calls him a liar and, worse, “pathetic” — with no doubt more to come.

Of course, we are not. Who says so? John McCain.

Obviously, a US Senator specializing in intelligence knows FAR FAR less than a nevada taxidermist who's never been to Syria.

"Assad warned, the CBS interviewer said, that if there was a military strike by the United States, there would be retaliation by those aligned with Syria. Syria was as prepared as it could be for an attack, Rose said he was told by Assad."

One must wonder who these countries are which are aligned with Assad (Russia, etc??) and judging by how they have remained totally clear of the conflict so far, how and why would they suddenly back Assad once he has been attacked. What might they try and do, and to whom?

Yo thinks Assad is just funning himself thinking some other country is going to step up on his behalf.

JL,, Russian involvement is there on the ground in Syria. Putin told Obama that the rebels did it. They have as much "solid" evidence as the EUs " probably" statement about Assad.

Perceived indecisiveness and lack of resolve are reoccurring ignition points for disaster all the way back from the beginnings of recorded history to the last centuries slaughters.

Who should the average American be for in that Civil war?



One side is Islamic. And has aligned with Al-Quay_duh and the Muslim Brotherhood, which thus far in every other country they got power, were fought , removed, or there is still fighting to get them removed. So obviously, not many people anywhere desire them to have power. (save for obama).

The other side is a dictator of the govt regime. Seems Christians of that country prefer him to the rebel side as a lesser of two evils. Beside the fact that the radical factions of islam on the rebel side will kill them on sight.


Is EITHER side "trustworthy" in any way shape or form? From the past decades of proof,, HELL NO...

Syrian citizens have been pouring out of hat country to avoid being stuck in the middle. Tens of thousands that want no part in either side. Seems odd that people with the most to loose choose not to take any side there, when a president all the way around the globe seems to be able to instantly take a side, based on a "probable".



So what IS probable here? The Syrian military, or the rebels? Or could it be yet another country involved in all of it? Iran? Russia? Afghanistan? All have direct ties , interests and involvement. Those are "probables" as well. You must step away from personal partisanship, govt loyalties and party line pressures. You must think logically and as if you were in each of the shoes mentioned above.

We have most all of us seen this act before. Time and time again... A Skunk will always be a skunk. How many more times will we buy the bs fed to us by those that WORK FOR US, while ignoring our wishes? And do you believe that our govt knows exaclty "how much" of a strike will prevent the use of WMDS any where? Really-- weve NEVER been able to do that thus far, in countless wars/conflicts previously.
