    And let's assume for a silly moment that the bombs don't hurt people. You are hurting Assads infrastructure, thus giving support to people (that you even admitted) don't know how deep their ties are to Al-Qaeda at the moment.

    This whole plan is ill thought out and I for one hope it's crushed. The U.S. should not in ANYWAY shape or form be helping a group that has ANY ties to Al-Qaeda. I'm not saying we should help Assad either, I'm saying we should stay out of it.

    Yes.. some people would die, but there were no plans to bomb congested cities.

    Putin seems to have stepped up at this point.. so its moot.

    I lived in the ME for many, many years and I know the intelligence is unreliable.

    Yes, the intelligence is unreliable on BOTH sides which is why the U.S. should not be supporting ANY side. And if a bomb kills someone, that is on the U.S. hands especially if it is supporting one side or the other. I don't want the U.s. supporting a group with ANY ties to Al-Qaeda, do you? And if we can't say for sure one way or another, why should we support one side or the other without knowing?

    The problem with Syria is their support of Iran and Hamas.. and the resulting threats to Saudi Arabia and the Al Houthi in northern Yemen.. The Gulf States want the killing to stop.

    And you can show as fact that the rebels won't side with Al-Qaeda? If you cannot, why support a side that can be worse. This is the problem with meddling in the M.E. people only look short-term and not long-term. An ally tomorrow can be your enemy in less than a decade.

    I am sure some rebels do support AQ.. but there are several warring factions in Syria.

    And THAT right there is a reason to NOT take sides against Assad. Becuase it could help those groups that have Al-Qaeda ties.

    You have Druze, Christians, Sunni, Shia and Alawites.. plus an influx of outsiders..... The situation is a mess and will likely stay that way.. Remember Assad promised elections two years ago.

    Yes, it is a mess. A mess the U.S. should stay out of. If we interfere AGAIN we could very well put a terrorist group in power. The more reason to not lob missles into a country don't you think?

    This is a U.N. matter. If THEY decide military intervention is required, then it needs to have the support of ALL members in the form of troops and money.
