    We can give assistance to rebels (have been already actually) without weakening him. It may even strengthen him if people on the sidelines oppose us getting involved.  

    But let's say he is marginally weakened? So the fuck what?  What good does that do? Does that stop anyone from being killed?  Does that put the CW back in the box?

    And you didn't answer the fucking question (and on one else has either- right up to the White House), how is he going to be weakened? Insert "significantly" before weakened if you like.

      most precious assets from us. I think we can, in fairly short order, bomb his forces to the point where he is in a much weaker position post-bombing than he enjoys today.

        Oh, those aren't his most precious assets? prey tell, what is?

        We have been, are, and will continue to meddle in a sovereign state's civil uprising, and so far our report card sucks like a hooker who advertises that chrome on a towing hitch is at risk because of her talent.

        No, I am slowly coming to the conclusion that Mr. Kerry made a very, VERY bad deal. He figured out a way to get Bibi and his racist supporters to sit down with equally reprehensible Palestinians (no, folks, tossing missiles into a crowded city is NOT how to negotiate a peace) and start talking peace. He promised Bibi that we would attack the Basher Assad to help protect Israel from the northeast. Perhaps even making a permanent dent into the Heights, and allowing Israel to steal that land, as well. In exchange for these talks, Kerry may have promised Bibi that we will attack Syria, and find some almost believable excuse to support it.

        I also suspect that China, Russia, and a few others suspect that this deal was made, and that they are somewhat against it.

        What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.
