    Heya Ttwtt.....I am still waiting to find out what US National Security Interest Assad broke attacking Rebels in a civil war in his own borders? Or what US Physical Interest was attacked?

    He was said to have crossed Obama's "red line" and that alone makes it an issue that requires "consequences".

    Yell.....well before, Obama said Assad had to go. Told him to Step down. Now he is saying this isn't about Regime Change.

    Its about doing "something" so long as that will not require boots on the ground. By creating enough chaos and destruction (shock and awe?) in Syria the odds that someone, not necessarily the right someone, will get rid of Assad are greatly improved. Meanwhile, back in DC, Obama will then have reason not to push for immediate defense cuts - so long as the republicants agree not to mess with his borrow and spend "budget". All congress critters, and Obama, can then say that they tried (to do whatever) yet were "forced" to compromise due to the "current global situation" or some such nonsense.

Russia feels its credibility is somewhat on the line. Given the interests involved and the balance of power, Russia will probably respond short of direct military intervention. Arms deliveries to Syria (perhaps at a scale to tilt the sectarian conflict decidedly in Assad's favor, sophisticated systems to make future military responses more costly, and possibly covert action), suspension of cooperation on Iran (maybe even full withdrawal from the international talks (P5+1 framework), and possible new arms deals with Tehran to make military strikes there more difficult are some options that are probably in the mix.

    Finally, as I've stated in numerous threads, I do not support U.S. military intervention in Syria's civil war. Aside from the fact that no major U.S. interests are involved, neither party to the sectarian conflict has demonstrated much regard for civilian protections. No matter the outcome, Syria is not likely to pursue policies that are significantly more compatible with U.S. interests. The anti-Assad movement's continuing failure to outline future policy goals vis-ŕ-vis U.S. interests over a more than two-year period since the conflict erupted speaks volumes. That the movement passed up ample opportunity to articulate its goals and aims is not, in my view, accidental. It is deliberate.
    This is not being given enough attention, IMO. It's possible, if not probable, that any new regime would be just as bad, only the sides would be flipped. Really, I can't see where we even have moral reasons to go in. I see no point in exchanging one bad for another bad.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    You can also literally go to the google link listed and see the newspapers and sources that cited the story.

    I see a lot of blogs and other crap sources, "Iranian.com," "WND.com"

    What's your source, don't just point me in the direction of a hundred sources what's the one you're using because the ones I see are junk.
