    What I doubt is that a few cruise missiles here, a few navel bombardments there, will have anything approaching a positive affect.  The area is fucked no matter what we do.  Assad stays in power?  That really sucks  - he's a really evil bastard ( and I don't use the word evil lightly anymore, I lived through Bush II).  The rebels win? That really sucks too. They're pretty bad themselves; a bunch of fundamentalist bastards that would be so happy to that the region back to the 13th century.

    Whatever the best response is, it is not war; we've tried that over and over.  It costs us lives and it costs us treasure, and it has no positive effect unless you are highly placed in the MIC.  It's far past time start learning from our mistakes.  Hippocrates comes to mind at the moment:  First do no harm.

    Why must we struggle to protect the accomplishments of Democrats of the past from Democrats of the present? -- cal2010
