    Re: Should we go into Syria

    Sounds like a good idea to me.

    Could give ole Military CBRN guys like myself a good job on the outside in Radiation Safety.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Think long term. Besides, Obomba is history in '17.

    After millions of years, I don't think it will matter.

    I think a better way to think of it is where do we keep the incredibly valuable by-products of creating extraordinary amounts of inexpensive electricity while we figure out how to use it next.

    There is a place that has been studied to death.

    Yes,

    If the government used chemical weapons on the population that is a big problem.

    If the rebels were able to obtain chemical weapons and use them, that is an even bigger problem.

    However, the only solution is a full invasion with boots on the ground. Any other option only opens up a vacume for insurgents or other states in the area to fill the void. If we just lob missiles in and destroy the ability of the government to deflect invation from influences from AQ, the Taliban or other islamic extremist groups, we may stoke an even worse situation in Syria then the one that currently exists.

    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Yes. The Yucca Mountain deep mine site has been studied in an effort to prevent it from ever opening.
