  •  I don't disagree. And that is the bigger question (0+ / 0-)

    for me is why should we care enough to take military action and likely get involved in yet another war.  If we are okay with the use of chemical and or biological weapons why do we even get to the question of should we.  After all we have the largest and most efficient chemical and biological weapons and its a very inexpensive way both in blood and treasure to use.  Probably deploy them by drones so its a win/win for us.  

    Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    •  not a matter of "if we're OK with chem weapons" (0+ / 0-)

      It is a matter of: Is there any course of action that will IMPROVE the situation or will we just impose even more misery on the Syrian people?

      •  Again, I don't disagree. But what is your course (0+ / 0-)

        of action to improve the situation and what do you mean by improve?  I'm not asking to be a smart ass.  Really want to know how to solve this issue.  Otherwise every-time someone gets away with using chems it makes it easier to use them again. If we are not willing to make stand against chems no matter who used them it sends a message that could result in an escalation of chem or biological usage.
