    Of course some of our "interests" are being hurt. But unless its the threat of our countries sovereignty, lives it can no way be justified.

    One has look at the long term possibilities, not just the here and now.

    What does "deal with Iran" mean exactly?

    Some of us never seem to learn..... Those that do not know history are doomed to repeat it.

    of course, I will never see any posts from you telling us how the deficit is such grand problem given that you are more than happy to spend a $1B per week on another pointless, open-ended military venture.

    Right off the top of my head? If Assad destroyed the rebels, consolidating his power more than ever, he may be emboldened to tha point where he teams up with other ME countries amd attack Israel. Were Syria's military destroyed, the threat ahainst Israel would be hampered for decades.

    You're right; some people never learn. I still get respinses to my posts that address what I didn't say vice what I did say.

    Ohh they ol doomsday scenario?
    There is no evidence pointing to that. Why would Assad after destroying his country, deploying troops all over, destroying parts of his infanstructure, what makes you think all the sudden the idea of "hey lest team up and invade Israel" will pop up in his head?
    No one is going to invade Israel soon especially Assad...
    No evidence points to these accusations you are making.
    Assad is just another tyrant which will sometime fall as a result to the Arab Spring

    I'll give you a hint. It involves sending our military to kick some major butt in a nation where they really deserve it.
