Do you Approve of U.S. Intervention in Syria?

Things to consider about the proposed U.S. intervention in Syria:
1) Over 100,000 people have died in the last two years and over 1,000 of them were killed by chemical weapons;
2) U.S. intervention, if successful, could lead to the disintegration of Syria and as Secretary Kerry has said lead to American troops on the ground;
3) Realizing it is losing, Syria may use its chemical weapons against Turkey, Jordan and Israel;
4) An American attack may lead to increased international terrorism;
5) Learning the U.S. is preparing to attack has meant Syria has relocated it forces and resources from those installations;
6) The cost of the U.S. attack will be hundreds of millions of dollars, which will be added to the U.S. debt;
7) Should the U.S. accidentally hit chemical weapons it could have disasterous affects for the Syrian civilan population;
8) U.S. involvement will commit this country to spend billions of dollars to rebuild Syria after our forces win; and
9) Failure to act as stated by President Obama will mean countries like Iran and North Korea will take the U.S. less seriously.
Your opinion?

I watched/listened to President Obama this evening and I do not believe a case has been made for attacking Syria.
