While some argued President Barack Obama should continue weighing his options, others, like Sen. John McCain, said the U.S. should have intervened militarily a long time ago.

Israel can keep protecting itself from its neighbors (by their recent bombings of Syrian weapons) and the USA should applaude them for it (and stay completely OUT of IT!)

why divided? these are the same rebels that have been found to have used sarin gas.....a weapon of mass destruction....in their war against their enemies.

the U.S. needs to stay away from this civil war.....and keep giving the israelis the means by which they can protect themselves....PERIOD!
