    My thoughts: A conflict in the making. This time involving Europe.

    Well we find again the same influent historical actors which are England, France and Turkey
    French Mandate for Syria and the Lebanon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I have the impression that it is going to end badly because there are several super powers involved and nobody want to lose their geo political influence.

    Well, the USA has a fleet off the shores of Syria.
    Whole lot of countries want ASSAD gone at all costs.

    Then the USA and others are making all kinds of threats to Syria not to use chemical weapons.

    Now my thoughts are this:
    Okay to kill each other in Syria with bullets, bombs, rockets, explosives.
    But not chemically?
    Geesh....why not?

    What side would the US want to take? Iran backed Assad, or Al Queda backed rebels. Gee, thats a tough one. Perhaps better to let this conflict go on as long as possible,

    That's why indirect interventionism do not work. Too many times we are looking at the fires in other countries when at the same time we ignore our own fires.

    We have enough problems in the USA that are not being dealt with. We need to stop being the world's policemen unless there is a strategic reason for doing so. I don't think either side in Syria is going to side with the Western world against Iran, so I don't see any strategic benefit with intervention of any kind.

    Just let them continue to kill each other. It is what they do best in the Middle East.

    It appears to be clear that Syria has chemical weapons. I also remember that when we went into Iraq the Israelis told us that we would not find weapons of mass destruction because Saddam Hussein had already moved them to Syria. We found the warehouses where chemical weapons had been stored and found paperwork that verified their storage, but the warehouses were empty.
