An 'unbelievably small' invasion, from what I hear.

Just not to trusting of the media. I have been in position several times to see how they have twisted facts to what they wanted people to see

Let's remember that when (if Obama goes through with it) the videos surface of all the dead children 'the US killed'. Whether genuine or not, the video 'proof' will be spread worldwide and the ones who want to believe it because 'The Great Satan would of course do something like that' and in turn decide to up the 9-11 ante with something even more abominable.
It won't even matter if they're successful or not because we'll find even more of our liberties and Constitutional rights eroded in the name of security.

We always have boots on the ground to help identify the targets. Sad thing is those people over there will put schools, hospitals, day cares, etc..... Next to their high value targets just to keep us from being able to just bomb it.

Extremely good point. However, it has always been of my understanding that there was knowledge of what was going on and it was ignored. I include my own country in that.

Excuse me? "After 50 years of being the World's policeman..."

The UK has been the World's policeman for at leat 200 years since the Empire was in full flow. ALL the British Empire was governed by Britain as we were responsible for everything to do with those countries, their governments were controlled by us. We formed countries.

Now as for "very little help"...where were we in Afghanistan, Iraq
indeed everything the USA has ben involved in during the past 10 years, we have been by your side.

I realize that the UK was the world's policeman, but it was imperial in nature. It wasn't done out of altruism. Imperialism was highly profitable for the UK.

While to some extent global stability that is brought about by the U.S. playing the role of world policeman benefits the U.S., it also benefits all the other nations in the world ... many of whom do little to nothing to contribute to peace and security during times of crisis. I would say the UK is the exception to this, but there are many nations who take a more shall we say hands off approach and simply benefit from Pax Americana, which costs American taxpayers mightily to maintain.

I for one am much more in favor of a more isolationist approach. Let other nations protect their own interests or collectively step up and contribute to global peace. I'm tired of the U.S. being the only one who has to figure out what to do when crises erupt, which is usually to act alone or with a few allies, because there is almost never a consensus at the UN to do anything other than slap wrists. The U.N. doesn't really work in times of crisis.

Assad agreeing with Russia's plan for international control of Syria's chemical weapons seems like a game changer, yes?

I'm happy to see change in the air,
for the moment anyway.. It seems.
and that imminent strikes are being pulled back from
the brink...

Would be great if they can work it out another way..
at least they have a breather now...
To do just that.

Syrian president, ASS, is going to turn over his chemical weapons. You know, the ones he never had and never used. Of course he is going to turn over ALL of them. Sure. Wink wink wink wink.

Some history scholar.... My Father-in-law helped liberate a couple of those camps. It bothered him for decades. He rarely talked about it with anybody but other Veterans. Being a former Marine he sometimes would talk to me. It was haunting. I can feel the human compassion for a need to act in Syria. But being a realist I also see that WE are being played by others involved in the situation. Russia,Assad,the rebels are all jockeying for position. That is enough for me to say we're done with it. We have too many ills here at home to fix to go off interfering (once again) in the affairs of another country.
