there are thousands of Syrian refugees who have been displaced by this distructive war. were are they supposed to go? what countries in the region has the ability to accommodate all those refugees? When will the killing stop?
this is not about U.S interests, this is about Syria. i say we should bomb the Assad regimes military capability, not to help the rebels but to force Assad to come to the negotiating table. the only way this war can end is if all sides are willing to negotiate, if Assad would be willing to step down as leader of syrian as long as he is given safe passage out of the country, and if the rebel forces and factions are willing to create a transition government and allow the people of Syria to decide their own future. if the extremists refuse to play ball, then we will support the moderates who are willing to negotiate.
