Thread Name: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Subject: RE: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Military intervention will strengthen Al Quaeda and make Americans less safe as well
as promote an all out civil war in Syria as is the case in Iraq.

The solution is to advocate for the United Nations to have a response isolating Syria
and decrying the violence that is coming from there through Assad and the rebels.

For the U.S. to ignore or downgrade the U.N. in an advance attack is to prolong the
conflict maybe for decades. With the U.S. track record in Iraq (destruction of the nation)
and Afghanistan (the longest war in U.S. history), the outcome of a military strike is predictable.

If the U.N. is "weak" it is the responsibility of the world's countries including Britain and
the United States to strengthen it rather than attempt to destroy it.

Hitting Syria opens a Pandora's Box.
