7. Agreed.

Gee, didn't we try this once before - one of the many flimsy arguments bush2 cited for getting rid of Saddam Hussein was invariably "he gassed his own people!!!!"

Well, we sure showed him, alright, didn't we? We sent a message out there about the folly of using chemical weapons on your own people. EVERYBODY learned from that one, didn't they? NEVER saw the likes of that atrocity again, did we? Sure took care of that problem once and for all, didn't it?

I just don't think anything good, longterm OR short, will come of this if we go ahead with it. Innocents will still be killed - and probably by us and our "surgical strikes", and we sure won't get any thank-yous or be met with flowers and sweets after we do this. Even if we topple Assad, the people fighting him don't like us. Whose side do we take, and who do we arm and assist - al Qaeda or Hamas? Which pro-Western set of rebels is that, again? And we're likely gonna get stuck in deeper and deeper when it starts. And all we need to fire up the Arab world further against us, and up the ante against us, is yet another scene of the U.S. bombing another Muslim country. Yep, that's the ticket fer sure!
