    resolution considering how they were burned by the Libyan UN resolution?

    It will have to be very carefully worded. Maybe so carefully worded it will be rejected by the Obama administration.

    Kerry has also stated that more has to be done to help the rebels topple Assad. He also said, in almost the same breath, "There will be no American boots on the ground".

    "Boots on the ground" are no longer a necessity in order to wage war in these days of "over-the-horizon force projection". The US has the capability of bombing a country back into the dark ages from a thousand miles away. There are no nations in the world that are not within it's reach.

    Keep in mind the Obama Doctrine:
    It is not a war if there is no American skin in the game.
