    . . . especially coming from the left, really makes me cringe.

    One possible goal of all this could be to force Assad to negotiate
    So we're going to intervene on the side of Sunni jihadists in the belief that such would force Assad to negotiate? Negotiate with whom? To what end? Nonsense! The war in Syria is a sectarian fight to the death - rule or die. Whatever the U.S. says it's trying to achieve by launching missile strikes against Syria, in the end it's just more gasoline on the flames.

    Let's be real: the U.S. goal is to overthrow the Assad regime in order to deprive Iran of its crucial regional ally & replace it with a more pliant regime that would be subservient to U.S./Israeli interests. If that means a tacit alliance with al Qaeda, then apparently so be it.
