    right?  So clearly that is the motivating factor.  

    Syria is a humanitarian disaster - but it was when Assad was shooting his people instead of gassing them. (also, isn't gassing them sort of a vestige of older forms of warfare - I mean it's clearly not OK, but technology has put lot of other blow em up real good forms ahead of chemical weapons in terms of awfulness).  It is ok that we have a moral obligation to alleviate suffering - we do.  But is attacking Syria in any way effecting this goal?  Not one iota.
