    USA and Russia aren't the only countries on Earth.

    Maybe Europe should do something.

    Maybe Turkey should do something.

    Maybe the Arab League, of which Syria is a member state, should do something.

    It would be rather terrible if we were supplying Assad with arms a la the Russians. But in spite of the horror of Assad's side of the war, the US shouldn't be pressured into arming the broad Syrian rebel coalition of democracy and terror just because no one else will.

    No more wars against the latest boogieman. Let someone else try their hand. Maybe France will this time, after whetting their appetite with Mali.

      I want to point out that it's not as if the Arab League is all that afraid of Syria on this issue or anything. They've temporarily suspended Syria's membership over the issue. So they've obviously got an opinion. Maybe they should do something with that opinion, since it's on their doorstep and it's their peer state.
