Good point. With pResident obama, we no longer have the influence we once had. Assad would have had nothing to fear militarily from the US... except obama's hand is being forced to defend his silly "red line" statement.

Are you absolutely sure it was the Assad regime? I'm not. Folks in those parts are notorious for creating incidents to gain support for their cause. That would be a small price to pay to get the US to take out the Assad regime... especially if the people paying the price weren't your people.
oh....the irony....it's...it's...it's got its own zip code....

Bear in mind, I agree that we shouldn't be bombing Syria..

Hot off the press from Reuters:

"New York Times, Huffington Post, Twitter hacked by Syrian group."

They found time to squeeze in a little hacking between the bombs, bullets and chemical attacks. Seriously Reuters, and your government sources, this would be hilarious if people weren't about to die.

For what it's worth, if it is determined that WMD were used and it was Assad's forces who used them, I think the U.S. HAS to launch military strikes to damage his military infrastructure and command & control capabilities.

Under the law, the President can initiate this action, and is required to brief Congress. He is required to obtain Congressional approval if U.S. forces are going to be engaged for longer than 60 days (+ 30 for withdrawal). I can't foresee any circumstances where he would have to go to Congress for such approval.

I don't know that this will have a significant impact on the Syrian civil war - but that's not the point. The use of WMDs is the point, and how we proceed from here is something being watched very carefully in Damascus - and Terran.

I've begun to suspect that an attack with WMD's is meant to make us react, a plan. And that we buy right into it. Even if they hope we'll attack and that they can reciprocate, at us or Israel, I guess I still think we need to, but I sure don't see a good outcome.

Not to the Syrians but I can see Assad thinking there is an upside. Iran is an ally. If he can unite his own country and Iran against the US and possibly Israel he could be the leader of the "mother of all wars." Iran conceivably could have a nuclear weapon. Makes ME nervous. And before you say they are no match (or anyone says it) for the US military, when's the last time we won a war.?

That's a very interesting theory.

Whenever military action is undertaken there's reason to be nervous, particularly if attacks are made by aircraft instead of missiles. There's also a possibility of an indirect response against Israel a la Saddam's Scud attacks in '91.

Since Assad is likely to win the civil war even if we take out his command and control systems, and since the Iranians are lots of things but not suicidal ... I don't see much chance of the 'mother of all wars' or the use of nuclear weapons.

I think I'm going to agree. Assad, or someone in Syria, pulled a Saddam Hussein and used chemical weapons on the citizens that opposed them. As we can't be sure who the bad guy(s) were,(the UN inspectors haven't even started their investigation, I think we should take actions to ensure we get the culprit. obama is trying to reduce our stockpile of nukes, why not dispose of a bunch of them in Syria... problem solved. Whomever used the chemical weapons would be vaporized.

That would send a message to the world that barry does have the cojones that nobody believed he had.

While we're at it, Iran doesn't like us either, and are quickly developing WMD's. Why not reduce some more of our pesky nuclear arsenal in Iran? Which reminds me, didn't we also have a problem in Eastern Libya, Benghazi? Time for a little payback.

And what about those Taliban folks in Afghanistan... hmmmm? The only problem is they keep hauling freight back into Western Pakistan when threatened. A minor problem just hitting Western Pakistan, because Pakistan has nukes. We'd have to do a lightning strike, but it would have to be on both East and West Pakistan to ensure no nuclear retaliations.

We have a lot of nukes to get rid of, did I miss anyone?

That depends on which "Syrians" you're talking about. "Drawing us in" might be bad for the Assad government,(which is no direct threat to the USA), but it would be a bonanza for al-qaida and the rebels, who might be.

A surgical strike on Syrian military sites.

It's imperative.
