Exactly. The U.S. has been conditioned to flex its muscle in every village and province on Earth. I would like to see how local powers, backed with huge oil reserves, could handle the situation on their own. I'm not saying they won't get their 'habibs' mussed, but that is the nature of diplomacy and war.
Who used wmd? The Al Qaeda or the government fighting the terrorist. They are leaving that out because there is no proof. NONE. We all agree that they were used in the middle of the night but by whom? Assad didn’t need them. His army had routed the Al Qaeda. They were desperate. How can our government lie to us again? This is endless— Gulf of Tonkin— never happened. “WMD” in Iraq never happened. What are these jokers going to do— shoot missiles at chemical stockpiles — what? Shooting missiles at sovereign nations violates the UN charter and international law. This is insanity. What are they doing?
It could also be that the ci-Qaedas used them and made it look like Bashtatrd Assad did...
