  •  We're presumably trying to end the slaughter (0+ / 0-)

    of civilians, not determine Syria's political future, except insofar as its political present must end, being responsible for this slaughter. The Assads have been killing hundreds of thousands if not millions by now over the decades, in Syria and Lebanon, all because of politics. They must be destroyed.

    •  No worse than Hussein was. (0+ / 0-)

      And yes, we have to consider the actual impact of firing missiles into Syria. Will it cause more killing or less?

      Biggest question:

      Will it make the US safer or less safe?

      Foreign policy exists to serve the nation's interests, not the world's.  The two sets of interests overlap, but national needs take precedence.
