Are we, the US, really considering intervening in the Syrian unrest? There are reports that the government of Bashir al-Assad has killed as many as 10,000 Syrian civilian protesters. As horrible as that situation is, what are we going to do?
Syrian isn't Libya. We can't just fly a couple of sorties and drones to take care of the problem. In order to have any effect at all, we'd have to essentially invade Syria and fight against tens of thousands of well-armed Syrian troops with home-field advantage. Are the American people ready for another middle-east quagmire with a terrifically high body count and cost?
Don't we have the quickly approaching Iran/Israel problem to worry about? Aren't we still fighting and dying in Iraq and Afghanistan? I hate the current situation for the Syrian people, but they must solve their own problems. We're spread a little thin right now.
