      Really, we should not attack other nations who have not attacked us. In this situation, the UN is the very best venue to bring the issue.

      I know lots of pundits think Russia would veto the UN making war against Syria, but I think those pundits are making a mistake if they think war is the only thing the UN can do. For example, the UN might ask Russia to accompany UN representatives into Syria to collect and destroy their chemical weapons. Russia might be willing to do that to avoid a messy war while allowing them to be seen as the good guys while keeping their sizable presence in Syria.
