    How about increasing the credibility around the world of "Rules principles" like: "without clear evidence we do not act"
    Your country (more than USA) is willing to act without an international mandate.

    Nothing wrong with a bit of gun boat diplomacy.

    The reason we haven't face yet WW3 is that every country is following international rules.

    If USA/Britain break one of them, it will give free will of shooting to everyone.
    This happen even in real life.

    Well here we go. It begins.

    Military strikes on Syria 'as early as Thursday,' US officials say - World News

    The U.S. could hit Syria with three days of missile strikes, perhaps beginning Thursday, in an attack meant more to send a message to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad than to topple him or cripple his military, senior U.S. officials told NBC News on Tuesday.
    The State Department fed the growing drumbeat around the world for a military response to Syria's suspected use of chemical weapons against rebels Aug. 21 near Damascus, saying that while the U.S. intelligence community would release a formal assessment within the week, it was already "crystal clear" that Assad's government was responsible. Vice President Joe Biden went even further, bluntly telling an American Legion audience in Houston: "Chemical weapons have been used."

    If Assad has just one P 800 long Range Missile. We have serious problems. It is a ship killer. One strike.

    Assad didn't even break out his Anti air stuff when Israel flew in to take out the Missile Shipment. Now who do you think helped him not to tip his hand?

    Anyone thinking this is going to be a cakewalk is seriously deluding themselves. This isn't Libya. Assad's anti air is full circle with the S300. That's over lapping protected anti air zones and able to keep moving the whole time around whatever installation. These wont be fixed positions.

    Plus now we have the Russians who are into talking War, in Moscow.

    We do not know yet who didn't followed.
    Things should go step by step.
    I will support an intervention when the evidences come out.

    Goodness! We haven't even finished paying for the other wars yet!!! I think my government is trying to destroy my country.


    No, President Obama has tried his best to keep us out of this conflict, but he really has no choice now as he has run out of time...Hopefully, it will be quick and successful...and won't destroy anything that isn't Syrian..

    America! **** Yeah! The World Police are on the way!

    Will we ever learn? No. At several million per missile, it's a great opportunity to get campaign cash from the MIC.
