    and the threat of force does work as a deterent sometimes (and maybe it has worked here) but we actually do not want Assad to lose this war.  Obviously, we do not want him to use chemical weapons on anybody, let alone civilians but I'm not sure that he did.

    I do not see how an actual bombing campaign can do anything bt harm our national interests.  As I laid out eslewhere, it cannot destroy all of the chemical weapons, it cannot hurt Assad too much because we actually need him to win this thing unless some lesser evil emerges because the current evils in the running are far worse than Assad ever was.

    Diplomacy can accomplish what bombs cannot.  The reason this whle thing started was based on food scarcity driven by environmental changes.  Assad, being a dick, sold of the grain reserves when the price peaked and the people were losing their crops to drought.

    We pay people in this country to grow food for fuel which may seem more environmentally friendly but in reality has a larger carbon footprint than gas.  Think there may be a possible solution out there?
