I definitely think Assad must be brought to answer but so must the many war criminals on both side's of this conflict, I genuinely think a Aggressive
UN peacekeeping force should be dispatched under UN mandate but as it seem's that the UN has been deadlocked by China and Russia whom most of them
still fear it is a dangerous road for the US to go down to act on it's own or even with a few allies.
It is a complicated war not least because of the propaganda being used by both side's but because the rebel's are not a unified faction and according
to some reports may have been (And I have no doubt in my mind they are accurate) responsible for the Jihadist murder of native christian's as well as
being split along the line's of internal Islamic sect division's.
I can not truly say weather we should or not intercede but like a bomb the situation need's to be defused, If We do successfully intercede then we
may gain a stronger position as Iran develops the Atomic Bomb but if on the other hand we do nothing then once again the world has stood around while
innocent's on both side's have been massacred, We all know that when Iran develops the Bomb it will be used at some point.
If America goes in they had be better prepared for the inevitable escalation to more theaters possible with a Cino/Russian military pact and there
use of these rogue states as a buffer zone which is obviously what Putin want's.
In short I think there is essentially no choice though non want more kid's brought back in body bag's it is only a matter of time before the
Jihadists attack the west in full force and they have established fifth columns already in most western nation's whom through equality law's are now
em-placed to cripple those nations'.
Personally I wonder if maybe America should back Assad instead as a quick victory would spare innocent lives and bringing him on board may still
allow the necessary pressure to be brought against Iran but how to get Putin and the Chinese on side as they are really using this to empower
themselves as they make a grab for the number one power position by the mid century and are seeing only there own long term vested interests.
They think the western powers would be at there own back gate should these buffer states fall but I think that the ensuing chaos will eventually
spill onto the street's of Europe and then America and when it does god help our children then.
Also they are looking with avaricious eyes upon the asset's of Europe and America as our military is undermined and our politicians are growing more
ephemeral and weak like impotent and indecisive fools, show a dog weakness and it will go for the throat with no mercy but show it strength and it
will back down to it's place in the pack.
If we go Ahead then we must show full strength and no weakness as that is what Putin and the Chinese will be watching for, if a few egg's need to be
cracked then so be it but we must be ready for the consequences and Cameron better fall back on treaty mandate and provide from us any assistance
