If the air strikes will stop further bloodshed, then by all means, attack. But if this will be just a slap on the wrist, so that the U.S. can say they tried, then don't bother. Syria is quagmire right now. I don't know who to support in this conflict. When it all started, I was all out for the rebels, but after seeing Islamic extremists and terrorists like Al Kaida infiltrating their ranks and hijacking the uprising, I've developed cold feet towards them. And I'm saying this as a Muslim. Assad is no better. Overall, Syria is a broken country, and it will remain so even after the war ends. Sectarian violence will tear at this country long after Assad is gone, just like Iraq. Best we can hope for is that the U.S. stops further loss of civilian lives by bringing this war to an end.
