The United States Government has decided to get more deeply involved in the Syrian civil war. The “red line” that was supposedly crossed was the use of chemical weapons. Does this sound like Iraq's “weapons of mass destruction” to anyone else? Evidence is weak, and we aren't even sure which side is responsible.
Could someone explain to me why a Syrian civil war is worth American tax dollars or even American lives? These things have a way of escalating.
Nobody remembers history so we are doomed to repeat it. The Syrian problem has already involved its neighbors. How long will Israel be on the sidelines? Russia? China? Who knows where this will end?
It could end in a world war, that's where.
History could show up what to avoid, but if we can't even remember the Iraq war, there's not much hope of learning from earlier conflicts.
