There are still people who think the US should do it.
I would laugh if they fire the Tomahawk missiles and Syria shoots back the Yakhont missiles and sink one or more warships. Also Russia gave them a anti-missile systems which can shoot down a soccer ball at sonic-speed.

The Assad regime has chemical weapons, and has proven that they're willing to use them for crowd control, of all things. If airstrikes can reduce their ability to carry out such atrocities, why shouldn't the US go ahead?

This has nothing to do with the economy. No one is talking about an invasion. Obama and Cameron want to authorize air strikes and additional civilian aid, nothing more.

From a military standpoint, how do you reduce Assad's troops ability to use chemical weapons.

The first option would be to strike the believed chemical weapons storage. We run the risk of civilian casualties not only because of the bombing itself, but also because of the leak of the chemical weapon. Also, not all intelligence is 100%. There will be a miss and we may hit a storage facility that was not part of our objective.

The second option is to remove Assad's means of using the weapons which would include his filed artillery. So we wipe out all of Assad's indirect fire units to prevent chemical weapon usage. However, chemical can still be delivered by truck and detonated remotely. While you limit its usage, you ultimately did not stop anything. Furthermore, you deteriorate his forces giving a significant edge to the rebel forces.

The third option is to just wipe out the entire regime's military force. This completely misses the objective and allows the rebel forces (which are closely tied to terrorist organizations) to seize power. Civil unrest will still continue.

The only other option is to use special forces or some ground force to dismantle the chemical weapons themselves. Which obviously no one will agree

This is a situation that cannot be won with cruise missiles and air strikes. This isn't call of duty guys.

The fact is that every single ******* time the West involves itself with the Middle East in any way, shape or form in comes back to bite us. This has been the case since the Crusades. You'd think people would get the hint already and just let them sort their own **** out by now.

I'm just wondering here, and I'm not taking any sides because I haven't really been paying attention (I probably should though...), but what do you guys think would happen if America doesn't help? Would they get just as much **** as they are for helping?
