SeriousGeorge: Looks like you Americans are getting involved in this whether the populace wants it or not.
Bontesla: lockers: Bontesla: I'm not saying that we should intervene to fight anyone. That's kind of our problem. We try to pick the winner in a fight that isn't ours.I'm saying that we can intervene to prevent an inevitable genocide. We have some rather brilliant minds around the world. Let's start talking.Please name a conflict that we got involved in where we didn't end up killing civilians. Even our super targeted and precise drones kill women and children. No, there is no way you can fix the killing of civilians by killing civilians. This is a failed military adventure waiting to happen.Please name a conflict in which my proposed solution has been carried out.
thoughtless: wow I really need to preview comments, huh?

I would like to think of myself as philanthropic. Unfortunately, the math sucks at time. Do you kill hundreds of Assad's troops to save millions, or do you not kill any and watch Assad slaughter a big piece of the population? There is no 3rd choice that avoids killing. None. Zero. How do you fight someone who ob ...You don't even know that Assad did it. The last time an American secretary of state opened his big mouth about WMDs, he was lying. And you suddenly believe it this time?
The Stealth Hippopotamus: Nadie_AZ: So suggesting we pay for the war and have a draft to fight it are now equal to going Starship Troopers?Just as likely. When have we ever had a tax just to pay for one individual thing? I guess you could say Social Security and Medicare but those go directly into the general fund.Remember War Bonds were voluntary
Magorn: So those of you who want us to do nothing are basically okay with giving world leaders carte blanche for war crimes and genocide?
The Stealth Hippopotamus: Why don't we limit the right to vote to veterans? I bet the VA would be cleaned up in no time.would you like to know more?
Aarontology: We should enact conscription and a war tax and see how many people are still keen on military intervention.
Marcus Aurelius: SlothB77: If Syria is allowed to get away with this unpunished, get ready to see Iran and North Korea run <B>amuck</B>.You mean the civil war in Syria will be so appealing to them that they'll decide they need civil wars of their own?Because that's what it sounds like you're saying.
The Muthaship: Did he say it "Jenjis Khan".
sign_of_Zeta: You know, I know that we got involved in two shiatty wars we never should have and that caused a backlash, but the fact is if we in America truly want to be a better country, we have to help protect innocent people around the world. Work with other major powers and stop atrocities. People's right to live, the most basic of rights, is being flagrantly violated, yet so many of us want to do nothing. It makes me sad to be in a country where so many people would choose to ignore that rather than help.
SlothB77: If Syria is allowed to get away with this unpunished, get ready to see Iran and North Korea run amuck.
