Steve Zodiac: BecauseA) Syria is next to Israel, Saudi Arabia and Turkey and may attack or destabilize one or more of them.B) Turkey is a NATO ally and the U.S. is required to come to their aid, Saudi provides oil to much of Western Europe and it would be bad for their economy, and therefore our economy, to have a major disruption in energy supplies, and no US politician dares ignore Israel if he wants to be reelected.
Headso: When we don't you end up with Rwanda. Intelligent intervention isn't a bad thing IMO. Just gotta follow Kenny Rogers advice from that Gambler song and apply it to foreign policy.
