But then you essentially have a bunch of hostages on the ground. How do you resupply them? Rearm them when weapons run low (because both sides will go for them)? It's a logistics nightmare, as well as evacing and replacing anyone wounded.

Here is my prediction.
1. US hits Syria
2. Syria, Hezbollah, possibly Iran hits Israel
3. Israel is hit hard, responds by promptly nuking every Arab country within range of their missiles. Because of the
"arab spring" all the govts of those countries are in a state of complete disarray so a response is not likely.
4. As we closed most of our embassies in the region, we have few casualties.
5. Possibly erupts into a global war.
