No problem, just have Uncle Ben print more dough and bill the taxpayers. Of course the rationale here is a certain group of people here in America make up the proportion of our tax base anyways.

Pre WWII Germany all over again.

It cost billions to make war and it cost more to clean up the rubles and rebuild, all that just to change regime and what could a new regime possibly do to elevate the people's lives without anyone left unhappy and mad?

going to cost a heck of a lot more when the russians manning/training on the SA300 missile sites take down a few. syria is a lost cause, a russian/iranian puppet state. even if we went in, threw assad out, put the rebels and al queda in all that would happen is another libya/egypt american hating country with their hands out for US taxpayer dollars.
