Obama is now supporting the rebels in a covert manner-without the support of congress or the United Nations.What would you do to end the civil war in Syria?
Possibly the most functioning route.
In all seriousness whichever side has the most public support will probably win, we should provide arms to the rebels but otherwise stay uninvolved.
The issues with Syria should not be looked at by the world as being 'Rebels' against their government... all that does is provide tyrants a justification for greater repression and more direct human rights abuse!
We should be also voicing our opinions against those other countries that also practice blatant human rights abuse and support the vested interests that they maintain with governments like the current Syrian regime.
What is the value of life when it is spent on one's knees?
We definitely need to get Russia to get its head "out of the sand" (to keep things PG) and wake up to what is going on.
Assad needs to go.
Unfortunately, if Obama decides to get the US involved, the GOP will have a field day with it.
If Obama decides to sit it out, the GOP will have a field day with it.
Taking politics out of it, whoever decides to ally with the rebels needs to get some sort of leadership group formed now for the eventual transitional government. Otherwise we may be booting one tyrant to install another.
Yea Cody, its always the GOP. What would we all do without your wisdom
The problem is this, speaking from experience when a country is having a civil war, particularly in an area that is suspicious of the US at best the US joining one side makes great political fuel for the other, suddenly it's framed as a foreign invasion with the US wanting to install a puppet leader for their own benefit. The end result is not only massive spending for the US and loss of life but also a longer and more bloody war, I think it's great to support them with arms and training and given that if there is enough public support the rebels will win.
Technical advisers? That's just the start. Obama's plan to keep unemployment low is to send troops. Can you imagine the unemployment rate if all the soldiers came home at once? It would start a civil war in the USA.

We watched Ken Burn's series on The Civil War this past weekend (all umpteen episodes---my partner is sick and it is winter in Michigan, so you know, we had time), and I was struck by the similarities between Lincoln's era and our era, and the similarities between Lincoln and Obama.Not all the...
