China joins the party
Terrific, China is coming to the Syria party with its own war ship. Quick, somebody tell me when's the last time the US, Russia, and China each had warships within sight of each other in a hostile war zone?
I think the likelihood of our respective navies mixing it up in the Med is remote, but what is highly likely, is that Obama loses badly the House vote, and our navy tucks it tail and skulks away from Syria having done nothing. How will that look on the world stage to have Russia and China being able to claim they intimidated the greatest Navy in the history of the world into non-action? It looks bad, that's how it looks.
Obama needs to drop some ordinance on somebody somewhere, even if just to save face at this point.
