Having followed with some interest the activities in Syria and the alledged use of chemical weapons the following can be stated:
The problem here is that this is not going to be an easy strike, and the US is overstepping its bounds. The first is that there is no way to
determine who used chemical weapons in Syria. One side says that the Government did it, the other side says the rebels. Too many countries are all
involved in Syria, turning a civil war into a proxy war.
The country is not ready for another military engagement, as it is finally finishing with Iraq and Afganistan. The people are tired and the will is
not there. But there is one other aspect that somehow is being ignored.
The civil war in Syria, is a mess to begin with, as there are too many outside influences involved. The Syrian Government is one side, and the Syrian
rebles are another. At the same time, it appears as people from different groups are also getting involved.
And it is the people, the very citizens of Syria that are caught in the middle of it, it is they who are suffering and ultimately are going to have to
clean up the mess that is created when all is said and done.
This is going to back fire on the US, as the recent uprisings/civil wars have shown. The people raise up the US gets involved, yet without looking at
their core values, the US gets involved fully, only to discover that the next group that takes over, are not so friendly to the US policies, or are
outright hostile, to the point of being the dog that bites the hand that feeds it. And this is exactly what is happening in Syria.
What needs to happen is that the US needs to go back to the UN Security council and get all of those with Veto power to agree to back out of it and to
prevent others from getting involved, letting the people of Syria to deal with it, to offer humanitarian aid, in the way of food and medical
And here is the problem, if the US goes in with out the UN Security council, then it will give those who oppose the opportunity to use such as
precident to do the exact same thing, including taking actions with several others when it is within their interest. And make no mistake, that if the
US does this, there may be a chance that Russia or China make take a more militant stance in other parts of the world, to include areas that the US
does have more interest. After all what would the US do, if say the Chinese decides to mobalize and keep troops in say North Korea? Or places a
blockate around Tiwan, or close to Japan?
