sorry, not playing your game today. the uber-troll thing is wearing thin.
Back to the issue and current events....
The war in Syria is between the pro-Iranian Assad government (Shi'ite) and an invading Al Qaeda jihad (Suni).
The winner of that war will have chemical weapons facilities and stores.
Who here wants Al Qaeda to have chemical weapons to use in their terrorist attacks here?
Russia will give Assad the most modern anti-ship missile systems they have. These systems are just as good as ours. It is a certainty US ships will be hit by these missiles. It is a certainty US sailors will be killed. It is likely US ships will be sunk. It is certain the aircraft carrier will be the most significant target, and these missiles are capable of sinking it.
Who here wants perhaps thousands of US sailors killed just so Obama can help Al Qaeda acquire chemical weapons?
If we have to become involved, we should kill the existing enemy of the United States. We should help Assad kill the invading Al Qaeda Suni jihad army.
Otherwise, there should be no US involvement.
