    We'll do nothing because the right doesn't want the U.S. to get involved because it will cost money. They're too busy shouting SEQUESTRATION SEQUESTRATION!

    I'm not sure this will cause Obama to act - after all, most people in his party believed that it was none of the US's business that Saddam was poisoning millions of his own people with chemical weapons for years and should have been left alone - what's the big deal about 16 people in Syria? Maybe if Assad exterminates a few million Obama might cancel a tee-time and discuss it with his advisors.

    Of course he's not going to do anything. I doubt he makes any public statements on the issue, because he painted himself into a corner on this one.

We must use our "resources" to arm the Muslim Brotherhood (and appease Pakistan), make angry noises about Iran's and North Korea's nuclear programs and continue with the pressing issues of US gun control/immigration reform. As long as we stay away from talking about the US budget/debt Obama is a happy camper.

    With assisting? Yes. With an all out invasion force with a side of nation building at the end? No.

    They're already at war with Afghanistan and the US Military budget, not sure they can fight a war on three fronts.

    Yet again, with an all out invasion force no. Is invading countries the only solution the right can ever come up with?

    We should do nothing because Syria is a political quagmire of no relevance worth the cost of a single American life.
