No. We don't know who's who and we'd run too much risk of fighting countries we can't afford to fight. Plus, we've lost too many allies in the region as it is. Let Syria handle Syria. Let the neighboring countries defend themselves. It's too fragile a situation as it is, and it's already too late to go in anyway.

This. You should win a Nobel Peace Prize. This is what our Founding Fathers wanted in the first place.

I just wonder how much this will affect me, especially if Obama's plan carries through. As far as I'm concerned, if we go boots on the ground in the future then there's a high possibility that I'll be sent there. Up to you now, Congress.

Everyone knows America's real goal is to take more oil from the middle east


Rubbish.

America produces a ton of its own oil, and will do so for the next 5-10 years:

- No. 1 US produced more petroleum in March than Saudi Arabia, and Europe, Central, and South America combined



The Energy Information Administration (EIA) released new data this week on international energy production for the month of March. For the fifth straight month starting last November, total petroleum production (crude oil and other petroleum products like natural gas plant liquids, leased condensate, and refined petroleum products) in America during the month of March (11.76 million barrels per day) exceeded petroleum production in Saudi Arabia (10.85 million barrels per day).

Also for the fifth month in a row starting last November, America: a) took the top spot in March as the No. 1 petroleum producer in the world, and b) produced more petroleum in March than the combined output of all of the countries in Europe, Central America, and South America (11.32 million barrels per day in March), which has never happened in the history of EIA international petroleum data back to 1994.


American doesn't currently need to fight and die for oil in the Middle East. We have plenty of our own.

And no, a Nobel Peace Prizing winning President should not be launching missile strikes against other humans. American is not the world police. Let countries work out their own problems. Would America let China or France "punish" the American Congress for any nefarious activities via missile strikes? I doubt it.

This is actually a moot point anyway. The U.S. President and both major political parties, Republicans & Democrats, are in agreement here on striking Syria. Missile strikes from France, Israel, and the U.S. will likely happen. The question is not "if", but "when".


RT @Reuters: France's President Hollande says if US Congress votes against action in Syria, France would not intervene alone.


- U.N.'s Ban casts doubt on legality of U.S. plans to punish Syria
- http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/09/03/us-syria-crisis-un-idUSBRE9820VX20130903

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Tuesday that the use of force is only legal when it is in self-defense or with Security Council authorization, remarks that appear to question the legality of U.S. plans to strike Syria without U.N. backing

He also suggested that a U.S. attack could lead to further turmoil in conflict-ravaged Syria, where the United Nations says over 100,000 people have been killed in the country's 2-1/2-year civil war.


Or so it seems.

there are many theories why the US are fighting and want to invade different countries in the middle east, but i will not go into detail on the different theories as there is alot of them. But one of them(or two) can be that the US/european countries want to eliminate any type of threat to them, as the US did in the cold war with supporting different countries around the world so communism would not spread, so the soviet union would not get more power. and it can be the same now. only now it is not about communism more about eliminate any country that can be a threat to them in the future. or the second theory i wanted to mention is that syria are saying(has said a long time now) that they wont lay down their chemical weapons before israel get rid of their nukes. and if israel lose their nukes that will be a big lose for them and also for the us or any other country that would side with them in a potensial ww3. it wont really matter if they dont attack syria now, if the US want something they will do every thing in their power to get it. and just look at the facts here, israel broke alot of UN rules before and they even have chemical weapons them self. and the UN dont give a sh't about them. so from what i have read before i would say no they shud not invade syria. and never trust any type of media when it comes to politics, read stuff online instead.

No, we shouldn't! It hasn't even been a month since Detroit declared bankruptcy. That should be a strong indication that we should be paying more attention to ourselves, not Syria.

Although I don't like what is taking place in Syria, and I have viewed countless hours of the brutalities taking place there footage that never is shown by U.S. and most developed country's media, but the fact remains that the U.N. established a set of rules regarding the use of chemical and biological weapons and it is the U.N.'s responsibility as a whole to deal with the crimes perpetrated by any country. Now that said, I am abhorrent of the U.N. and any participating nations pusillanimous behavior in not upholding the laws they have created, but then so many of those nations are more concerned with the gas deposits in the eastern Mediterranean than they are with the crimes against humanity. Overall agree with kirika202, the U.S. has no business trying to propose ourselves as the universal hero when in truth all the U.S. is after is further economic stimulation.

Considering that it won Libya I think it's something that's necessary. Our enemies have now organised themselves into a country which includes the territory they have in Syria while the democratic allies are given very little to help them. We can't let our allies down so the Syrian government needs to go down and so does the terrorist state. There are legit reason to get involved in Syria - unlike Iraq was.
