Let's be honest folks. I hate to doll out the "if this was Bush" argument, but if it was, we know that there would be no diaries, ZERO, saying "I stand with W on opening up a pandora's box that we may not be able to close." The risks of striking Syria, when Syria is involved in a civil war that has no domestic threats whatsoever, outweigh the risks of "liberating" the Syrian people. Here are a couple of possibilities: Al Queda gets a foothold in ANOTHER Middle Eastern country, Al Queda or others gain access to gas canisters (geee, I wonder what could happen there?), or it throws a whole entire region of the world into perpetual war. So for those who say "I stand with Obama" on this one, please reconsider your blind faith to Team Blue before you advocate for a quagmire in the Middle East.
