    As we speak, Assad is creating human shields. Do we never bomb bad guys ever again because the concept was created by muslim terrorists that used humans as meat shields when they attacked the IDF? Assad is gassing folks. And before that, my understanding is 100K people were killed with conventional weapons. I am not in love with any dog in that hunt (Assad, Al Qaeda, Hamas, etc.); but is it cool for USA to just completely blow this off no matter how many die? I'm paraphrasing and will probably not get this right - but I think it was Stalin that said something like "10 dead people is a tragedy but a million dead is just a statistic". When do we finally whack Assad for the good of humanity?

    He killed them with VX, Sarin, and mustard gas, which is a war crime that should have been dealt with through the UN. **** like that is why the UN exists.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Odds are then that after Desert Storm, Saddam sent it all to Syria. Now Assad is testing the stuff to see how well it still works. UN is smoke and mirrors. Anytime the UN wants something handled, it ends up being USA troops. UN: 200 tick countries sucking the blood out of USA taxpayers. I say kick it out of NYC, stop giving it money, and USA handles things directly with her allies. In this case however (Syria), I don't like any of the dogs in the hunt. Either let them work their own stuff out amongst themselves or let Israel take care of business. Actually from what I hear (I have a brother in the IDF) Israel would prefer to just keep Assad. The enemy you know is often better than the enemy you don't know.

    In relation to chemical weapon facilities, it should depend on where the weapons are stored and how close they are to civillian population. One would hope that this is something that is being taken into into consideration.
    Reports have already said he has moved much of the military into civilian areas. We will kill more civilians than he did. Period.

    It is not our job to spend our money and send our people out to die, in order to police the whole damn world.

    Do you live a life with zero access to main stream news? Not only was it a huge issue when the UN found out about it last year, it's happening right now and all the media are reporting about it. The new effort that started last week is called "Over Our Dead Bodies".

    BBC News - Syrian children used as human shields, says UN report
    Syrian children used as human shields, says UN report
    Syrian troops have tortured children and used them as human shields on tanks to prevent attacks by opposition forces, a UN report says.
    The UN's Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict said children were being tortured in detention and slaughtered in massacres.
    The report said rebel forces were also using children on the front line.

    PressTV - Human shield formed to protect Syria from military action
    Human shield formed to protect Syria from military action
    Syrians from all walks of life have joined a human shield campaign to help protect the country from potential foreign military action.
    A group of people, including artists and athletes, participated in the campaign dubbed “Over our Dead Bodies” on Monday.
    The participants are shielding key facilities in the capital, Damascus, pledging to stand their ground until the military threats are stopped or they are killed.

    Syrian activists have taken to forming “human shields” around military installations in the capital of Damascus in efforts to discourage the Obama administration from authorizing “limited” military strikes on the Syrian regime.

    So, your going to kill the babies in order to protect the babies. Unless your advocating the US stands down and saves credibility by not violating international law, leaving Assad to effectively fight his war on terror. Just to prove how little you understand where the Syrian people's hearts are, your own link says that "Syrians from all walks of life have JOINED a human shield campaign to help protect the country." Syrians don't want your kind of help Snappo! They want Assad to rid the country of the terrorists that are destroying their country. NATO says 70% of the civilian population supports their president. YOU want another US military action, your panting for it, holding your breathe as congress votes, hoping for a green light.

    then maybe the united states should have lost the cold war since it is apparent it's citizens can't take the responsibility of being a world power?
