The price of oil has already jumped up because of the threat of escalated conflict in Syria. I agree that bombing anything in Syria doesn't solve anything, in fact, it only generates more enemies and ungrateful temporary friends.<quoted text>
What oil? I say; let the Russians handle it. Our going in there and bombing that rubble to smithereens won't solve a thing and Assad won't resign. Maybe the threat of it will cause talks to begin.
No one, not us or the Russians, can handle the chaos in the Middle East.
