  •  Nope, any inclination to attack is unacceptable (0+ / 0-)

    It is not our responsibility to get in the middle of what's essentially gang warfare on the scale of civil war with a religious driver.

    Wake me if Assad starts attacking and invading other countries. Until then, humanitarian efforts for refugees is all I find acceptable.

    •  Yeah, never mind if another 100k die. (0+ / 0-)

      Who cares, right?
