    in Genovese's case those were her neighbors or the people who lived right there where it occurred.

    Syria is not our neighbor. This is not happening in our backyard. We are already deployed, overtly or covertly, in MANY other countries.

    There are other very wealthy countries right in that neighborhood who have military (mostly bought from us) and have an interest and are already involved but using proxies.

    Knock it off with the guilt trips.  Our supposed humanitarian interventions are hardly ever really for humanitarian reasons and the people who are intervened upon rarely end up in a better situation.

    And if you feel so strongly about intervening, go sign up with the Free Syrian Army and go fight it yourself, and risk your own blood and treasure, not the blood of young Americans who signed up to protect this country (or to get health coverage or college tuition or a job which they had no other way of getting) and the treasure that, as more of it is spent on wars, more is taken away from people in poverty and suffering here.

    Go for it!  I'm sure they are taking recruits.
