I agree with you. Education is not the same as intelligence. Intelligence may be wasted if you don't have the education to use it and education may be wasted if you don't have the intelligence to use it, but their relationship to one another is like an engine and fuel, the intellect being the engine and education being the fuel. These days, education is a lot more common then intelligence and it is often wasted on stupid people.
As for Syria, it depends on what you mean by "right." Is it a question answered on moral, practical, legal, etc. grounds?
