    LOLOL.. Obama has already expressed his fallback plan.

    If you want to know more about the history of Syria and what's happening there, you really need to listen to Buck Sexton. His radio show is on right now - free. Podcasts are free as well.

    Not the way we tend to do it. If we went in, full force, no holds bar war.. It would be over in less then a week and cost us virtually nothing in comparission to what the poor planning in Iraq costed us. The reason why these wars have been so expensive for us is because we limit our own capability by putting up a half assed fight. If we had gone into iraq and afghanistan the way we should have, with a half million boots on the ground and massive amounts of air power at the onset, those conflicts would have been over quickly. Instead, we sent in no where near enough troops which dragged the fight out and eventually ended up be ineffective and expensive.
    - 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.

    Putin's taken on the responsibility for Syria now.
    It was just to much for our man-child President.
    What new thing will they come up next to distract
    the average American idiot from focusing on what is important?

    But what is at stake here is not whether or not Obama get's to feel like he demonstrated testicular fortitude (though that might be important in his mind) - it is the worth of the U.S. security guarantee. Like a reputation, that value is relatively low-cost to maintain, but very high-cost to win back.
    In the New York Times Today:

    ...TOKYO — When President Bill Clinton signed a 1994 agreement promising to “respect” the territorial integrity of Ukraine if it gave up its nuclear weapons, there was little thought then of how that obscure diplomatic pact — called the Budapest Memorandum — might affect the long-running defense partnership between the United States and Japan.

    But now, as American officials have distanced themselves from the Budapest Memorandum in light of Russia’s takeover of Crimea, calling promises made in Budapest “nonbinding,” the United States is being forced at the same time to make reassurances in Asia. Japanese officials, a senior American military official said, “keep asking, ‘Are you going to do the same thing to us when something happens?’ ”...

    “The Crimea is a game-changer,” said Kunihiko Miyake, a former adviser to Mr. Abe who is now research director at the Canon Institute for Global Studies in Tokyo. “This is not fire on a distant shore for us. What is happening is another attempt by a rising power to change the status quo.” ...
