Also, Eary and Moto, it so happens that France is with the US on this. Moto, I'll let you do your French bashing and you'll probably be right. France can't go alone. It's not Mali...
I am not in favor of a war but we need to do something. Since it is a crime against humanity in several international texts and that there are proof that Bachar Al Assad did it, I think the intervention should aim at bringing him to an international Court.
I am tired of people being so self-centered on their own country and their own problem : " oh my god, there are so much important things like the strike of fast-food workers !". Don't get me wrong, it is important but so is this. We live in a WORLD. Not in a country. If someone starts using chemical weapons against its people and the powerful countries do nothing, then where's the limit ? Don't believe you're safe just because you live in a democracy. Nobody is safe from a crazy person wanting power.

Well, we should not be involved in this civil war. If these middle dirt dwellers want to butcher each other...like they have been doing since the dawn of fucking time, have at it. There's no real consequence to the rest of the civilized world if they bomb each other into oblivion. In fact, it may improve it. The middle east has been a bastion of complete chaos for so long, it's hard to give a shit about any of these people. If they can't get their acts together to make a decent society after 5,000 years, which they obviously are completely incapable of, they deserve to go extinct. Especially when 70% of the worlds problems seem to be caused by these shitbags. I say use our drones with cameras and televise these wars and make friggin TV series out of them. Call it..."Ali-Bye-Bye".
