    If Hezbollah and Al-Qaeda want to go to war.... that's like the Iraq/Iran war. The only real inherent tragedy is that both of them can't lose.

    Good idea, but the Russians already have the Assads sold. #joking

    They can blow up nuke facilities or whack the scientists for all I care, but do we need yet another endless occupation? Under what criteria do you define "must"? To me, that means imminent direct provocation, which there's no evidence at all that either plans to attack the US. Israel has the ability to defend itself. As for civilians, if we really cared, would have done something long ago.

    Syria for humanitarian reasons only, in & out, and with no collateral damage. That is my preference if given the ideal circumastances.

    Neither. It will just make things a lot worse and more sticky.

    Yeah, it worked so well in Somalia a few years back, lets do it again.

    Since there is a neither option I chose other. We shouldn't be messing with either country.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
