    That's right.
    While USA is playing battle field games around globe, Russia has been developing a lot its Navy. By 2020 they claim to have a huge Navy.
    And who knows what else they are doing. Their silence last ten years is too suspicious imo.

    Or we can foreclose on them when they are done.

    I won't say wait and see, because no one will be able to see.

    Just out of curiosity, where do you think this navy will be based? Archangel? The Baltic? The Black Sea? Vladivostok?

    Yes! Who do you think gave AQ the funding and arms to get where they are. We are sending both arms and money to the rebels in Syria. Who do you think the rebels are? Who has been caught using chemical weapons? The US openly states that it is funding the rebels. Adjust your blinders.

    We're in debt to China and Russia, not the other way around. We can only foreclose on Greece and maybe Cyprus. We owe everybody.

    Good Point.

    I guess that we could say that's one good thing about a nuclear holocaust - When it's all over with we get a fresh start. Kinda like declaring a bankruptcy, eh?

So in terms of PAO support, yes. In terms of actually bombing bad guys... not so much.

    and France has taken the lead in Mali.
    France has taken the lead in Mali - which has pretty effectively tied up its' force projection capabilities.

    They could sort Syria out and have the US provide logistics or something so the US can say it helped.
    They lack the ability to do this.

    Sort of. Remember the old saying about the difference between owing the bank a hundred dollars, and owing the bank a hundred million dollars?

    ....If that argument is the best one that can be mustered in its case.... then implicitly it makes a fairly strong argument that the cases are not that terribly different.

    No one knows yet who used the chemical weapons
    We do, actually. The Syrian government employed a portion of it's CW stockpile. Confirmed by the Intelligence Community here at home, and its' incidence confirmed independently by Doctors without Borders abroad.
