    I agree! When you "draw a line in the sand", if the person crosses it, you MUST do something. It was said again today, that yes, Assad crossed that line, we must do something. I'll just say a no fly zone would be a good start.

    I say we intervene real quick then get out. No need for police state. We shouldn't just sit here and watch people get killed by WMD's. Its not safe for them and not safe for us.

    Who says the people are being killed by WMD, our government, the same one who runs the IRS, snoops on AP, coverup on Benghazi. If you believe anything they say, heaven help you.
    Let those idiots kill each other, I hope Assad does win and defeats the real terrorist, the ones who we for some unknown reason are supporting, at least Assad allowed Christians to worship, as for the ones we are supporting they just shot a kid in front of his parents for trying to make the rebels pay for a cup of coffee.

    Obama needs to go over and fight this one personally instead of sending some innocent US soldier over there to get killed, see how he feels then.

    With or without War Powers authorization from Congress?

    With or without UN Resolution(s)?

    Presidential decrees of 'Red lines' in the sand are not the foundation of committing US military forces IMHO.

    Obviously, I'd want this to happen by going through the necessary channels.

    After Libya I am not sure how 'necessary' they seem to be.

    It seems the administration is trying deal with Assad like it 'dealt' with Qaddafi - supporting unstructured 'rebel' groups to do the dirty work.

    The problem is Syria and Assad are not Libya and Qaddafi. One thing is that Assad saw what happened Qaddafi and he has no interest in being murdered in a sadistic manner as Qaddafi was. So he will be as vicious he has to to retain power. But also Assad has Russian backing. The Russians have no interest in another radical Muslim regime in the region. Libya did not pose a direct threat to Russia. Muslim extremism in the Middle East is a problem for the Russians as they have Muslim groups that represent a threat to them inside their borders or satellite countries on their southern flank.

    The talk of a no-fly zone seems to go nowhere. Probably for a practical reason - Assad and the Syrian military probably has Russian provided SAMs that would pose a threat to any aircraft enforcing a no-fly zone.

    Maybe after ignoring the War Powers act in Libya no one thinks its needed. But it used to be - before Libya.

    And if they don't ... the 'rebels' are working on getting MANPADs....

    Saudi Arabia wants missiles for Syrian rebels: report - FRANCE 24

    The article, citing a classified report received by the German foreign intelligence service and the German government last week, said Riyadh was looking at sending European-made Mistral-class MANPADS, or man-portable air-defence systems.


    Der Spiegel noted the shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles can target low-flying aircraft including helicopters and had given mujahideen fighters in Afghanistan a decisive edge against Soviet troops in the 1980s.
