    That makes a huge difference.   People who support military strikes are well aware that it will make the situation worse but emotionally feel that they have to "do something."   Two weeks from now and it will be like talking about punishing Turkey for the Armenian genocide of 1915.

    Perhaps we can use the feeling that we have to do something to actually figure out what to do.   (Hint, handing out anti-air missiles to al Queda wannabes is probably not a net positive...)
