I have been following the all the various situations in the middle east to a degree, and something alarming just happened, Russia is warning of severe consequences if the US takes action on Syria, the story varies from source to source, but one thing is rather clear, Russia wants us to wait for the UN inspection on the report of chemical weapons being used, that's one of the main reasons we are assuming an offensive posture towards Syria, because there was a report of chem weapons being used, but they are telling us to wait for the inspection results, and Russia apparently welcomes the inspection, but again, Russia warns that action against Syria by the US would be a big mistake, things in the middle east have seemed to been slowly escalating in the past few years, and it looks like things might be reaching the breaking point, i am not trying to preach or anything, rather i would like others input on the situation, it seems like things are circling the drain at an increased rate, and i just want to hear what others have to say.

In A DARK me: nus : H_ I Will cum us.

Assad knows that any unilateral western action will likely signal his regime's downfall. With the rebellion going on, his country is already significantly compromised.
Given how varied the rebels are, and the fact that some of the bases they took over housed chemical weapons, I believe it is highly likely that some of the rebel extremists used it on other Syrians in an effort to persuade the west to aid them.

Best course of action for the West is to do nothing but provide humanitarian support. If the war continues to spill over into Syria's neighbors, then sure, we got an issue, but otherwise it is not our problem as there is no way of currently knowing who used what.

I completely agree with what you just said, i don't know why we need to get into this, and i think that the civil war over there should just keep going until it fizzles out, and like you said, we should only take a more serious approach if it spills into neighboring countries

I personally believe the U.S. would be best suited in leaving the Middle Eastern conflicts alone, and focus on breaking our current dependency on foreign oil via usage of the large federal reserves and Alaskan oils while slowly reducing our systems dependency via alternative energy. It would be ridiculously expensive, and time consuming, and would slow the economy; as such this possible solution is never going to happen.   
   
TLDR: 						*****					 						******					 'cause oil  and there's no way out for the U.S.

so kinda go back towards neutrality like we had in the thirties, just keep trading with the world, but stay out of the way of wars and various little **** fights, we could get back on the right track if we just stopped sticking our noses in everyone's buisness

Things are going down the drain? You think?
Man, we're going off the rails on a crazy train. And I got some news for you, Ozzy ain't driving. There's nobody at the controls, we've lost control long ago.
Best we can do is hang on and ride it out.

No war with Russia will come, they will not fight over Syria, but no matter what the UN report is Russia and China will not allow the UN to pass a resolution on Syria and veto any security council resolution aimed at resolving the crisis solely to oppose western interests in the region. They want Assad to remain in power for their own reasons and honestly for the west, the rebels are not going to be better for western interests than Assad. Remember that despite the brutality of dictators like Assad and Mubarak they did keep the peace in the region. Your average person in that area supports war with Israel and because of the relative stability of the dictatorial regimes, there has not been a major war in that area since 1973. The bigger risk comes from whatever group takes over, likely an extremest group as seen in Egypt with the Muslim Brotherhood or Hezbollah in Lebanon, which may take a more aggressive stance with Israel, facilitating and funding terrorist activity towards Israel. Removing Assad may be morally right, but not in the best interests for the west

But why are we worrying about this anyway, its too complex for the average person (I'm not going to touch on the possible currency war), we're supposed to be preoccupied with Miley's Twerking to care about the world.

Russia is not in a economic position to make war. If you thought our economy was bad, theirs is way worse. Making war over something as small as Syria, is not something the Russians would do if they had any sense.

i see, but then again, we aren't in a great position to wage war either, yet we do, and it dissapoints me

These the same Russians who can't find most of their cold-war era bioweapons and may or may not have lost a few nukes over the years?

I kinda do have to agree with you.   
This is something more towards the likes of a board and not content.   
I know OP is looking peoples opinions, but yet again. There are boards.

the US wont wait or back down because of what russia did for snowden giving him temporary asylum and what not they might say they will to keep on good terms with russia but they wont. ill probably get in trouble for saything this since they are watching us for our own protection and if they do read this they'll probably take it out of contect but it has to be said. if the government carries on the way it is the days it will remain in power are frightfully limited. we've hit an unfortunate time im honestly counting the days until the final thing we are missing is added for us to go the same way as post wwI germany. we have scapegoats: someone to take the blame for everything. the middle easterns/muslims and honestly anonymous if they are still active will probably be marked as targets and anyone that can self sustain ie hunters farmers. they want us to need them. we have a militerized police, we just need a really charasmatic leader who will rally us and then impose a dictatorship basically the american hitler. our government is buying up proporty via reverse morgages, and its equiping random civilian vehicles with armor plating basically making their forces incogneto and the so called spending in our defence is attrocious trillions of dollars for what? bad **** is still happening give me the same trillions of dollars and all the years they have and i can almost guarintee ill find a solution. i for one think the boston bombing wasnt the work of al'queda i think that was a set up to give the american people more reason to blame the formentioned scapegoats. furthermore they have recon drones flying over us they say its just to test it but theyve recently expanded the parameters of where they can fly. its sad that we can no longer trust our government granted there wasnt really a time when we could but still.
its 3:03am august 26th 2013 im sorry if i rambled at all or if none of this makes any sense.
User avatar #5 to #3 - joethebeast (08/26/2013) [-]
it makes alot of sense, and that's the problem, it shouldn't, what is happening is wrong, and people need to step up and say something before we make a huge mistake, like the one we have the potential of making now, we have hit a crucial point and multiple events can spark out of this one, and none are pretty to think about, Obama's administration and the military need to take a serious step back here and think before they **** up, General Dempsey apparently even recommended Obama to take caution and stay out of Syria, but it seems that his words did not carry much weight, i just hope the military will have the sense to not step into a situation they can't win, rather then blindly follow Obama's orders

well, turns out alot of NATO seems ready to back us on this, but i'm still a bit nervous about Russia's reaction
User avatar #18 to #17 - AccountwasWiped (08/26/2013) [-]
How do you feel about the current regime? Are they as evil as our leaders make them out to be?
User avatar #19 to #18 - joethebeast (08/26/2013) [-]
i honestly think syria is no threat to us, and we should't even bother with this, it's a syrian internal affair and they should be left to deal with it unless they ask for help, which im pretty sure they have not, and i think there were worse guys out there than Assad, sure, he is a dictator, but then again, if he was a really bad guy, whats happening now probably would've happened sooner , now i am not supporting him, just saying it's not our problem and we shouldn't make it our problem
User avatar #20 to #19 - AccountwasWiped (08/26/2013) [-]
Im inclined to agree, we dont really have anything to do with that conflict. But because we like to feel like Big Boy Peacekeepers, America will almost certainly get involved. And this has potential to lead to much more bloodshed, debt, and unrest, which we definitely dont need right now. Makes me sad because theres nothing we can really do about it
User avatar #21 to #20 - joethebeast (08/26/2013) [-]
whats even more goofy is obama has no support from this from tons of Americans, alot of the congress and senate don't want it, General Dempsey on the JCS says it's basically pointless, but obama is hell bound to pursue this, and it makes zero sense

***** wants another Nobel Peace Prize.

Speaking of which, what did he do to earn the first one? Im too lazy to research it
User avatar #23 to #22 - joethebeast (08/26/2013) [-]
hahahaha, a peace prize for starting a war, loll, and not sure, i think maybe just because he was black or somethin

I highly doubt there'd be a ground invasion of Syria.   
At most, we'd launch a couple of cruise missiles against the pro-government forces.     
 In any case, we shouldn't get involved.

i hope not, we don't need another war right now, and if we do take action, Russia will no doubt have a response, and i just have a bad feeling that it may not be a few sour words towards our government this time, but an armed conflict, and i agree that we should not get involved at all, but then again, we all know that Obama has been operating completely opposite of what would be considered smart
User avatar #26 to #2 - Karibookiller (08/26/2013) [-]
Guys, Russia is not gonna go to war with us over ******* Syria. All they want us to do is wait until the UN inspection. I'm sure Obama is smart enough to do that.
