    Why are the bombs and cruise missiles not targeted for Syria? When Mr. Libya killed 400 people the Euros wanted his head. Yet all we hear are for sanctions against Syria. Sanctions that will not work. You think Iran or other Arab countries will not violate sanctions. Get real! As the death toll continues to rise in Syria we will face the dilemma of military action. I think the experience with Libya will keep other countries from going that way and the US will stay away.

    Speaking of the conduct of military action in Libya, it is a prime example of the difficulties and downfalls of coalition warfare. If the US went in alone and the Pentagon had a free hand I believe the situation would be far different than it stands now. As it is a partition of the country is not out of the realm of possibility.

    But Syria ... Is it because they pose a military threat to Israel and we do not want to invite an attack on Israel? Maybe it is Israel who is calling the shots, telling the Euros and the US not to strike Syria in fear of retaliation. Because if we hit Syria with air strikes and missiles I am sure they would lash out at Turkey and Israel. And their ally Iran may cause trouble in the gulf thereby causing the price of oil to skyrocket.

    Interesting ...

    Also I think the Israelis actually prefer Assad to whatever will come out of a Syrian revolution, I read an article about it online. Assad is a piece of shit but with him the Israelis know what their getting, if an Islamic theocracy pops up in his place, it could set the stage for an attack on Israel.

    Because Syria has no oil. D'erh.

    And if Syria went to war with Israel, they'd get crushed.
