Syria: The case for staying out

(Continued)

In the meantime our only truly steadfast ally in the world is Israel. They will have the military resources to intervene if directly threatened, which I doubt they are, and we have the military power to contain the civil war combatants if they wanted to export their war.

Last time I checked Syria was embroiled in their own civil war. I wish them God Speed in resolution.

In the meantime without a functional Congress and respected president, the U.S. is well-advised to pass up on this one.
