  •  Humanitarian aid... (4+ / 0-)

    to the 4 million + Syrians in refugee camps in surrounding countries would do more to win the hearts of the Syrian people than will a bunch of expensive cruise missiles  (5 US warships each with 56 cruise missiles each along with their launch platform run about 1.4 million dollars so:
     56 X 5 =  280 X 1.4 million/ missile  = 392 million dollars.
    A whole buncha humanitarian aid could be supplied with that number of dollars.
    There is not a thing the US military can do that would allow for any positive outcome that I can envision.  Our best response is to aid the refugees and not launch an attack on Damascus (the oldest continuously occupied city in the world)
