    Whatever crimes assad has committed. Assad eventually will pay for his crimes at the internacional criminal court (ICC) in the hague

    It doesn't make sense for the U.S. to strike assad, when assad is fighting al qaeda

    The U.S. limited strike on assad will not accomplish anything. After the limited strike occurs business will go on, on syria as usual assad will just continue to fight without using chemical weapons

    In syria. the syrian opposition has 6 million men of fighting age. The syrian opposition has only a 40,000 men army plus 10,000 men from al qaeda to fight assad. This shows that the syrian opposition is extremelly fragmented. The syrian opposition is divided into dozens of groups. If most of the syrian opposition doesn't want tofight assad. Why should the U.S. fight the war against assad on behalf of the syrian opposition?

    In lybia, the lybian oposition had 500,000 men of fighting age. The lybian oppposition was able to put together a 200,000 men army to fight gadhafi. When the time came, all 500,000 men rose against gadhafi. The lybian opposition was strongly unified against gadhafi

    It is obvious assad has crossed the red line and used chemical weapons. But the syrian rebels also crossed a red line when they joined forces with al qaeda. Al qaeda is the mastermind of of 9/11

    I do not understand why Obama does not listen to his people like the UK and Canada etc did, One of the reasons he was voted in was because the American people did not like what Bush and his party did going into Iraq. People who say he drew a red line and now has to go in is foolish. He did not say what his red line was so he does not have to go in, this will not end good for anyone he must help only from a distance people will not forgive him if he starts anything. Help from a distance and start building and fixing America. This will not end well listen to the American people they do not want to get involved with Syria other then helping from a distance. If you want to help Syria talk to the leaders in that part of the world in and let them handle things. Its time to stop going over to that part of the world unless it is in peace....another thing America would not only have Syria to worry about but may have Russian and others to worry about if they get involved in anything over there. HELL NO DO NOT GO.
