    Give enough to keep the fight there going, and to keep casualties high on both sides.

    Works for me. For all I care, you could build a wall around the place, air lift in rifles and ammunition, and call back in 10 years to see who won.

    I was hoping Turkey would lay the pimp hand down.

    Assad is the Iranian Mullahs pawn, the rebels are supported by Al-Quaeda like groups.

    The more they massacre each other the better for the rest of the world.

    We need to go into the Middle East with a heavy hand, before Iran unites them all into an Islamic nuclear power super state, that threatens the entire world.

    If we go in full force now we can win, as opposed to waiting until they are united, stronger and have nukes.

    It's time for the tenth Holy Crusade....:50cal:

    Arm the rebels just enough to match Iranian and Russian armament, but stay out of there. Love to see Iran's conduit into the ME cut off, but don't want to help the Muslim Brotherhood accelerate their caliphate plans either.

    This has its' good points. (IMHO) This will be the ultimate outcome of the ME unrest, as Iran is posturing more daily.

    One thing that would really help is drilling into every single American oil field, thus increasing global supply of oil and lowering crude prices, thus de-funding Russia, Venezuela, and Middle East states whose economies rely almost exclusively on oil profits.

    Let them slaughter each other but I am hesitant to arm any AQ affiliated groups

    One way or the other, most of what we send ends in the hands of AQ anyway, lets just make them all more efficient at lowering their overall numbers.

    Stupid. There is very little we can do about situation in Syria. Neither side is "good" and whoever wins, we lose. Sitting out is best choice between all the choices we have.

    Shouldn't we pay down the national debt first?

    We tried that several times already. The guy that replaces him raises it even more.

    Of course, "this time" will be different, right?

    This one beat the record of all previous goobers COMBINED. I call that "A Clue".

    Of course, for some, "Cluelessness is it's own reward"
