    Should America deploy troops to Syria?

    I will submit my personal opinion later in the thread. Simple question, complicated issue.

    NO. Not a good idea at all. I would leave it to the Arab Union to deal with this. If I were a United States Dictator, of course I would send troops. But It doesnt work that way, so No. The UN is dealing with the problem peacefully at the moment. We just have to wait and see.

    Re: Should America deploy troops to Syria?

    Related question: Are you willing to be drafted and go to Syria? Are you willing to pay a surtax to pay for it? Are you prepared for the war in Syria to go on as long as the ones in Vietnam, Iraq, Afganistan?

    If the answer to any of the above is no, then the answer to the OP is no as well.

    No, the United States has not been attacked, is not in imminent danger, and Syria is not a nuclear threat.

    No,no, no , no .

    Well unless it get's terribly for everybody (can't imagine how), sometimes some options should stay open.

    But the best course of action in the universe is to let internal conflicts fix internally, unless that conflict directly affects you as a external part.

    Re: Should America deploy troops to Syria?

    No, the only thing we have to go on with Syria is suspicion of facilitating terrorist groups which is not enough at this time to truly justify troop deployment. While it is an absolute travesty from a human rights standpoint we cannot solve all of the world's problems.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Re: Should America deploy troops to Syria?

    I am so tired of the "facilitating terrorism" reason that is used as justification to invade these countries. If this was the case, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and numerous other countries should be invaded first. When is our government going to stop squeezing the water balloon and just leave these people alone? The more we meddle in the middle east, the worse it gets for us. I'm not saying a POTUS should apologize for anything we have done in the past. But one thing our next POTUS should do is admit our policies of meddling in every skirmish we can, providing money to rulers we "like", buying weapons for rebel groups, were wrong and will not be carried out anymore. There isn't one example of us funding a rebel group that has been a lasting success. It provides short term gains at the expense of long term integrity.

    Totally agree. I wish though that the area would start to police itself, it's tiring to see innocents killed by the terrorist sects which is my only issue, I wish we didn't meddle in the area and just let it sort itself out, however as long as we are a target we have to do something.
