    Going in means a lot of things, not just boots on the ground. Meanwhile, innocent men, women and children are getting killed...left and right, while everyone sits back with some popcorn. Menace, huh? That's funny...sitting back, wringing hands, is how genocides occur.

    Just because you didn't get to see the military in full swing again, doesn't mean the Obama administration is setting back with popcorn. Covertly the opposition, known to be infested with AQ, MB, and al Nusra, have been supported by this administration and others. This "opposition" has been responsible for the majority of the deaths there, they have targeted UN convoys, and civilian driven supply convoys, they have killed Christians and burned their churches, they have parked car/truck bombs in front of government buildings and indiscriminately killed civilians, they have bound and execution style, killed pro president Assad civilians, and the reporter for AP provided evidence that they were responsible for the chemical attacks.

    President Assad is fighting a war on terror and the US is impeding his efforts, because of a long term US foreign policy goal of "regime change" in Syria.

    That is an amateurish assessment at best. Support to the Free Syrian Army is what should be happening. Overtly, combined with blockades of Syrian ports, and air support.

    The person who the lberals believe is the dumbest woman on earth figured it out a few years back.

    Care to guess where that puts the current person in charge?

    Well maybe you should find out more about the UN before coming with such stupid comments about the UN. It is like asking why NATO cant stop the gang violence in LA....

    Europeans tend believe that committees can solve all their problems so they create bloated bureaucracies full of big headed brainy people with swell accents, assume that something will be done and their problems will be solved and that's all that need be done. The original intent of these bureaucracies will lie long forgotten even while they grow into an an expensive sludge where some speak their opinions (as on these boards), more regulations are passed, but nothing of real consequence is ever done. They do more harm than good.

    Oh really now Mr. Professional, why don't you refute the claims I made of those opposing president Assad and seeking to impose their own form of tyranny in Syria.

    Why actually, yes, I am a professional. You are aware that there are non AQ/Hizballah/fundamentalist groups active in Syria, yes?
