I hate to be the fella to say this but we must strike Assad hard and fast. Not to save the people, they should save them selves. Not because the rebels killed people with poison gas, that is not our responsibility. We need to strike because it is in our best interest to slap around the middle east like a step child and show the world were still in charge.
Russia whether you know it or not is making a power play to start unraveling our power and influence in the region. If they can gain security and controll in the middle east there is no longer the need for our petroldollar which would ruin our quality of life. Do you like to eat? How about giving your children a somewhat safe future free of cholera and dysentery? For one to live comfortably another must not it is this simple.
By china and russia standing up they are basically saying your time in power is up we will take it from here, that goes to all of us americans and even our allies. We didnt want blood on our hands and the lies the government sold the masses was an insult to any one with half a brain but reality is simple no superpower loses is standing in the world with out its citizens suffering greatly.
Our only option is to do somthing so devistating so unthinkable that russia and china fall back into line. Im talking a real shock and awe, if they think we will use missles we use the very earth they stand on. We drop in a team of highly motivated individuals to kill assad and hang his corpse in the town square let these jokers know even when we are in our death throws we are still stronger than they are on their best day.
