    Any proof that he's not? No, there isn't and therein lies my point.
    There is no proof that he is. So basically you are saying, "I have no proof that he is doing what i say he is doing, but you cant prove he isnt".




    The old saying, "prepare for the worst and hope for the best", comes to mind right now.
    Syria will not be a threat.


    What evidence?
    Isolated clashes along the border
    Massacre of Vietnamese minorities in Cambodia(Kampuchea)
    Cambodia(Kampuchea) calling to invade Vietnam and invade Vietnam
    The Cambodia occupation of Tho Chau
    Kampuchea being supported by China and Vietnam be supported by USSR (dates back to sino soveit conflict)
    The failing of diplomacy
    Kampuchea falling out with Vietnam

    Also, we should be ready to deal with Iran if we do go into Syria.
    I think we should tell Russia it is thier job to go in and clean this mess up.

    That doesn't effect the ability of the army to deploy.

    That would be a really dumb idea. They won't clean up the mess. They will make Syria a satellite state.

    Allow me to salute your issue consistency, while restated my view that overtly meddling in the affairs of Syria or Iran are each very bad ideas. The operative word here is overtly (military action). I do encourage the US to influence events in this region in other ways.

    Again, address comments that I've actually made. I never suggested that we should send forces to Syria. In fact, I agree that we don't need to send forces to Syria.
