    one of the psychological divides here.  You speak of "putting the brakes on acting", while others (myself included) say we should not even start the car without very good reason.  And no, I do not feel we have good reason.

    We have only some idea about who might have been responsible for the chemical weapons attack, we have so far been notably inactive even through 100,000+ deaths and millions displaced, and we don't have (as far as has been said so far) good targets that would accomplish anything worthy.

    it is the inevitability of this that bothers many of us.  Jumping in half-cocked has been our military raison d'etre for far too long, and there has to be a better way.

    I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.
