Yes, please, let's send our soldiers, armed with guns, bombs, knives, and large vehicles that can easily hit a man and keep going.
Clearly when we just gave those things to the people IN the country, well that wasn't good enough.
Nope, WE are the experts when it comes to solving problems. And we solve problems by killing people.
(More ways in which killing people solves all the problems on the flip.)
After all, the BIG bad guy must be punished. And we will punish him by killing lots and lots of people in his country until they agree with us that he's a bad person.
We will drop bombs on people who dared to join the army of the country. Clearly if you join the Army of a country you agree with EVERYTHING that country does. Therefore, you are a legitimate target when your country is punished for the actions of a few people. Just the way it works. Of course if you follow orders to the letter, we also will charge YOU with a crime if you're a soldier. So therefore, you're responsible for not overthrowing the country in the first place, and no amount of rebel groups that are diametrically opposed to you are a justification for your inaction. Bombs away.
If you're a civilian of that country and you're not with the side that we picked, you're also a legitimate target. Of course we don't target you on purpose. Just attack the soldiers of the country. You know, your husbands, fathers, brothers... All those folks who are committing hideous crimes by the very nature of serving their country. You're expected to accept our judgement of their guilt and bear no grudge. After all, it IS a war, and you picked the wrong side.
We of course cannot kill the person we want removed from power. That would be immoral and illegal. No, the only people we can punish are the people who live in his country. After all, We wouldn't like it if somebody came over here and assassinated OUR president. Nope, clearly we'd be fine with any country on the face of the planet coming over here and bombing our people to make a point about things going on in the country. Totally OK with it. Hrm... nobody's trying it. Well, then the point is that nobody has ANY complaints about the way we treat our own people, otherwise they'd clearly be attacking our people to make the government change its ways. Wait, no, when it happens to US we call that Terrorism... uhm... never mind there.
Anyhoo, the point is that Just like every other war where we go in and bomb people, or shoot them, things always immediately change for the better and we are always greeted with flowers and chocolates. Or am I confusing that with the Defense Contractor Luncheons when they get the Contracts?
4:33 PM PT: Just realized Syria Scans Very Well with this song... Might as well let my DFH flag fly.
