    I'm sure most of them already do hate us so it really doesn't make much difference what we do.

    Re: Should we go into Syria

    Can anyone explain to me what good attacking Syria will accomplish?

    We went into Afghanistan, and in part to Iraq, to make the statement that we will not allow terrorist acts against the USA go unpunished. Iraq had more reasons yet that tied to the fear that Saddam may aid terrorists, and that he violated the cease fire agreements. That said...

    What does anyone hope to accomplish by helping to destabilize Egypt, Libya, Syria, and other countries that have done nothing to us?

    They will continue to get worse as we have aided the Arab Spring.

    The countries before Obomba have pretty well kept their people under control. Granted, not completely, but once this Arab Spring started, and Oboma supported it, and liberals are known to aid under the guise of human rights...

    Think about it. These shaky governments have become so much worse. Once the rebels started to claim Gaddafi was attacking innocent people, we helped them... Funny how many of the videos I saw leading up to this had the innocent civilians carrying assault rifles... The rebels. A civil war that would have been ended quickly, went on to be devastating to Libya.

    I wasn't keeping track of what happened before that, but I recall Obomba giving the thumbs up to the rebels. It was all for that feel-good-touchy-feely liberal reasons.

    As much as (probably) all of us hate countries like Syria, that was a stable country until recently.

    I can say with confidence, Obomba is to blame. We should have never aided the Arab Spring. This will haunt us in the future.

    social media played a bigger part in the arab spring then any action of the us government.

    Are you suggesting our threats and financial aid to the rebels didn't matter?

    Are you suggesting that elimination of Gaddafi's ability to squash the rebels in his country didn't matter?

    Tell me. Have we participated in making the Middle East a better or worse place?

    Well, as far as Iraq is concerned, it's only been a couple of years since we pulled out. Even though things have not been great there, I would like to give it some more time and see what happens. As for Afghanistan, we are still there and fighting, so things of course are bleak there.

    I can't understand why people wouldn't understand the reasons why most of us would not want to get involved in Syria. The entire region is quite unstable and volatile right now, and we have plenty on our plate to worry about.
