    If you take the stance of ALWAYS avoiding action... that doesn't really get you anywhere good.

    We were too soon to act in Vietnam and Iraq... but we were too slow to act in WWII, Rwanda, the former Yugoslavia, and now this.

    - Not all of these are our fights, sure...

    But we still get left dealing with the consequences...

    We might have no dog in this show in Syria... but we WILL be negatively impacted by having (another) nation in the middle east in the hands of Al Qaeda, or Hezbolla.

    Sitting on our hands while it was a fight about freedom has let it become something else...

    I'm fairly anti-war, but was that wise?

    Taking ab absolutely pacifist stance to everything can be as bad as taking an absolutely hawkish stance to everything.

    The roaches always win if you turn out the lights.
