    Well we have been sending our boys over for a long time as well ( I myself was in Iraq) and if it was up for me we would fully commit ourselves in Syria as well.

    Then that's a decision you can make, leave us out of it. Another decade of war ain't gonna do anything to help anything.

    You realise that its your government who is calling for this attack ( along with France)? No one is dragging you into anything.

    It's my countrymen, it's my military, it's my government, it's my Republic. I don't care if I don't go personally, I don't want America mixed up in this irrational nonsense any longer. I'm tired of sacrificing American lives for other people's problems.

    Proof of that statement, because Iraq never did that! Care to rewrite somemore history while your at it. Maybe Cuba attack Pearl Harbor, even better the Cubs won the World Series last year!

    Toward what end? Who would run a post-Assad Syria? How would the U.S. manage the twin risks of insurgency from the defeated pro-Assad forces and their allies and anti-U.S. terrorism from many of the elements that comprise the anti-Assad forces?

    This would require a long commitment, much money, and substantial manpower necessary to pacify the country.

    “If we are saying in a clear and decisive but very limited way, we send a shot across the bow saying, ‘stop doing this,’ that can have a positive impact on our national security over the long term,”
    - Barack Obama

    Problem is, shots across the bow aren't meant to hit anything.
    Just so I know one when I see it, what would a very limited clear & decisive one of those look like?
    Maybe we already did one and we can all stand down.

    Or they knew the attack was going to come before the UN inspectors finished their job, prepared a report and delivered it to the UN. But hell, we don't need confirmation, get out of the way, Assad's bad the Islamist extremists, jihadi fighters are good, lock and load.
