While the chaos is going on in Israel/Gaza, Hizballah fighters are training near chemical weapon depots in Syria.  The chemical weapons are probably the ONLY thing that would cause the US to be dragged into Syria.

   The U.S.A has Navy Seals and Delta force so I hardly thing that 75000 troops would be used to contain a dozen or so ragamuffins.

The article mentions about 40 separate sites that would have to be seized, secured and then held for long enough to either destroy the stuff or ship it away.

Watch    a claim come out that a sizable portion of the chemical weapons are ,   "most likely'   the   'missing'   Saddam Hussein/Iraqi  stash.    There by, after all, justifying the invasion / occupation / reorganization /    and $o on.

John Bolton, on Good Morning America will be a good delivery boy for that.

The US and coalition forces stop unstable, militant groups having the power to kill hundreds of thousands of innocent people. Warmongers

75k troops... LMFAO


Yeah right. The US has Drones, helicopter gunships and all sort of technological marvels. Modern military technology turns things liek that into massacres. Look at how the US tanks just blitzed the Iraqi tanks and that was before there was even more upgrades added to their tech.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

... but if we  the coalition attack,   no chemical weapons will be found. However it will soon be determined that they were transported back through Iraq   . .   and into Iran .

We could very well end up in the middle of Syria and the mess going on with Israel and Gaza.  And we thought we were going to bring our troops home.  I'm seriously sick of it all but I bet I'm not half as sick of it as the people having to live in the middle of it.  I wonder what those people would like to see happen.

If Hizballah gets in the middle of the Gaza/Israeli conflict we could end up in that.  Hizballah is much better armed than Hamas.

Something else I am concerned about is Syria's violence seems to be going beyond its borders.  That is causing even more problems with the neighbors.  If it doesn't stop Assad will have to worry about his neighbors attacking him.

All this violence is tearing that country apart.  I wish they could get someone in power that would stand for all the people in that country and write laws that are fair for all.  Keep Muslim law out of it, do what is right for the people.  Then the militants need to be arrested if they persist in their efforts to tear Syria apart.  I guess that scenario would be a fantasy.
