I too feel for the Syrian people but we need to stay out of it. The US has spent too many years, too much money & too many American lives have been lost because our government feels the need to police the world. Should the rebels succeed to gain control of the government, with the assistance of the US, there's no guarantee that they would support American interests. No one has taken responsibility for this attack, we don't know if it was Assad's forces or the rebels, all the more reason to mind our own business for once.
