    I'm just glad my kid won't be sent to needlessly die over there.
    I suppose dying for civil liberties is certainly noble, however anything we do will be nothing more for than a "Monopoly piece."

    This Syria nonsense is nothing more than a big dick contest at a bar between several egomaniacs....

    because of?
    Because Syrian terrorists, opposed by 80+% of Syrians, used some chemical weapons?
    I shudder to think.

    It would be a declaration of war on an ally. It would be interesting to watch Obama under real pressure.

    No thanks, that would be a nightmare, he's screwed up everything he's touched so far.
    You don't send a community organizer to do a leader's job.

    You are incorrect. The Shia are not continuous between Iran and Syria/Lebanon.



    The Shia in Lebanon/Syria are Arab, not Persian - that makes a serious difference. The political alliance between Assad and Iran was historically atypical (more usually Iran's ability to project power and influence ends halfway through Iraq), and gave Iran a geopolitical advantage it had not enjoyed in a little more than two millenia.

    Russian P800s do explode.....which is why the Brits never confirmed the Israeli Strike on them. Hoping that Russian Tech will fail.....is never a good start.
    Dogs will explode. That being said, I'm unaware anyone has posed hoping that the tech will fail as a tactic. Nobody is more keenly aware that Hope is not a Strategy than the military.

    So other than by Proxy.....Assad hasn't attacked any US interests since the start of the insurrection, correct?
    no, he's not suicidal. Do you imagine you are making some kind of a grand point?

    Everyone here who has actually been involved in developing a Candidate/Joint Integrated Prioritized Target List to utilize Effects Based Targeting in order to leverage the Joint Targeting Cycle to counter coastal defense cruise missile (CDCM) problem sets in the context of either opening sea lanes or prepping for forcible entry operations (FEOs)...

    ...in short, everyone here who would actually possibly know what they are talking about....


    ...raise your hand.

    Persians are not Arab.....Also if you were to include the Alawites and Syria, along with the Shia. Then that just fills that area more in.

    Well so do humans.....its called spontaneous combustion. Well you were the one that gave the excuse over their tech.....not me.

    I know he is not suicidal.....I made the Point and you answered it up front. So by no other means than Proxy is Assad and Syria a threat to the National Security Interest of the US. So no need for you to try and spin it any other way.

    not really. Alawites are concentrated in the mountains of Syria's East coast, along the northern portion of the border with Lebanon.

    i don't recall saying that you could ignore the russian missiles because they would fail. I recall saying that they could be destroyed.

    I know he is not suicidal.....I made the Point and you answered it up front. So by no other means than Proxy is Assad and Syria a threat to the National Security Interest of the US. So no need for you to try and spin it any other way.
    I haven't tried to do anything else - Assad working through proxies doesn't make him any less of a threat, any more than someone firing a gun at you isn't a threat because it's the bullet that will hurt you rather than the person holding the firearm. We have and continue to have huge national interests in Syria, and should take advantage of this opportunity to pursue them.
