    Bush was and Obama is horrible in the foreign policy department. Bush was horrible in that department thinking we could nation build in Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama made the mistake of continuing that policy AND taking a stance he wasn't willing to back up in Syria (chemical weapons used) and that has made the U.S. look real weak. By the time this is through 16 years of horrible foreign policy because of those two is going to be hard to clean up.

    Were the bombs loaded with chemical agents or did the bombs strike the rebels poison gas laboratory? It was the rebels that used gas previously and that is documented. I don't believe US.UK, or French press about anything Syria related. We are the bad guys in Syria. Face it, just like the Nazis.

    Should we go into Syria and...do what exactly?

    What exactly are we being polled about?
    Taking over Syria?
    Providing military support to some faction in Syria?
    Establishing a base for humanitarian activities?
    Some "peacekeeping" mission?
    To sell popcorn?
    I may be wrong.

    The time for a meaningful intervention has long since passed.

    We have concerns there, but that should not mean we invade. That is not our country and we should not be the imperial US. It could end just as bad for us if did invade as it could if we don't, on,y with more cost if we do. So, it's a no brained: don't!

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Re: Should we go into Syria

    The problem with Syria is that there was nobody leading for Obama to follow - unlike in Libya where the French led a NATO involvement. Likewise, in Egypt and Iran before it, there's nobody for Obama to follow so he's completely neutralized/paralyzed.

    Say what you want about middle eastern views of America under Bush, they were never as bad as they are now under this excuse of a President.

    The only hope for Obama to get engaged in a matter related to the middle east is if one of their sports teams wins a championship, then he can wine and dine them at the White House. Celebrity hostess is his true calling.

    Whatever "go into Syria means" to you. The context of the OP though was how we went into Libya.

    Re: Should we go into Syria

    I honestly don't know. On one hand innocents are being brutalized at the hands of a dictator who seems only to be concerned about his job security/generous compensation stream...well, maybe at this point retribution as well. On the other hand the people opposing him hate our guts and are associated with Al Qaeda and with whom we would be inadvertently joining forces. Then it seems possibly both sides have used chemical weapons possibly for the sloe purpose of drawing us into the conflict. In a situation where there is no good answer, I think setting up a refugee program possibly to Turkey, Jordan or an undeveloped area of western Iraq along with an international peacekeeping force set up to evacuate people might be worth considering. In the meantime, emergency efforts should be made to sharply curtail our dependency on petroleum, a key reason we must stay involved in the region in the first place as well as the motive of greed for our money for dictators to rule with iron fisted brutality once they gain power.
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011
