    Intervention would be hugely unpopular and makes little sense on any front - no easy military targets, no alliance to fight with, and a geopolitical situation that presents every opportunity for escalating entanglement.

    But stand by and watch as Assad gasses his people and the blame for the genocide will be laid right at your feet.

    Sometimes it sucks to be the dominant global superpower.

      Russia. Germany. France. England. All closer than we are. All with a military. Why is it our job to "police" the world?

      Now this is why I would never get elected, but if I was running things I'd call out those nations in public. Tell them to do something. Act.

      When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.
