    That's true, but do we need to render the Syrian military completely a ground force? Do sufficient damage to the Syria air force and you can effectively knock it out. I don't see the need to turn every airframe into dust. A complete no fly zone seems more than necessary if we can simply seriously damage most of their air frames as well as knock out their run ways. The Syrians aren't flying Gripens (they probably wish they were now though).
    Good point it may be possible to knock out their air force by purely attacking their static logistics, like airfields, fuel farms, etc. I don't know that's a question that requires an answer with a level of detail that I don't have, but if I was a military planner I'd look into it for sure.

    So then you would have been satisfied with Saddams "gains" in Kuwait and perhaps later Saudi? And the rest of the world would have "gained" in that situation how?

    And could you explain how, whatever country you are from, you are perfectly fine with another country shooting at members of your military on a regular basis, so you do nothing about it?

    Your thread title is funny. The attack itself is alleged, but no doubt the act of the Assad government.

    Kuwait was slant drilling under Iraq. Fed up with it, Saddam asked April Gillespie (US ambassador to Iraq) what the US would do if he went down their and handled it, she said she checked with Washington and they said, nothing.

    Nothing like making up history as you go along. Gillespie said, nor implied nothing of the sort. If fact in later testimony to congress she documented telling Saddam not to invade. But that doesn't fit the phony leftist tune so they never bring that part up.

    Just so I'm clear, what you and the other guy are planning is military action that will cripple Assad's forces and capabilities? Sounds great, uh? LOL. With friends like you two, the US won't have much trouble locating large parts of terrorists groups. All we'll have to do is look in Libya and Syria. Have you two considered putting in for jobs with the Obama administration? You should, you'd fit right in.

    Actually, Joe Wilson wrote a very good exposé on this and having served behind her in the same post he probably is a little more intimate with the details. Btw, why do you refer to me as on the left. Have you not seen how critical I am of the Obama administration?
