You are off topic. This isn't a thread for intervening in Africa, or Botswana or Algeria. This is a thread about Syria. It doesn't make your points invalid, no. It's just that the thread is about Syria.
Either the Rebels or Assad bombed a NATO country today. In case you didn't hear.
That, my friend, is considered a "No-no"

You are wrong in your assumption that a "no fly zone" is not on the table.
"The U.S. military has the capability to defeat that system, but it would be a greater challenge, and would take longer and require more resources" than in Libya, Dempsey said during a lunch meeting with reporters.
"The air defense picture in Libya is dramatically different than it is in Syria," he said. "Syria has five times more air defense systems, some of which are high-end systems, that is to say higher altitude, longer range."
I am pointing out that people are dying in Syria every day and NO ONE seems to want to do anything about it.
Three months, war over
Again. A NATO ally was attacked today
No where in your post does it say that NATO will never exercise a no fly zone over Syria no matter what happens.
