What's Your Take?

A year after President Obama warned the Syrian regime that using chemical weapons would cross a "red line," hundreds of people are believed to have been killed in an apparent gas attack on rebel-held parts of eastern Damascus that is thought to be the most significant use of chemical weapons since thousands of Kurds were gassed by Saddam Hussein 25 years ago. President Obama has received criticism from some members of Congress for his limited response to the violence.
 

What’s Your Take? Should the US get involved militarily in Syria ?  If so, at what level of involvement?

We should not act alone ,but seek a coalition of NATO allies. No boots on the ground. Targeted strikes

Here’s a short, random list of some of the major events that occurred in the Middle East just this past week: 25 Egyptian police officers in civilian clothes were massacred in Sinai as they proceeded toward one of the military bases in the peninsula; a court in Cairo announced former president Hosni Mubarak’s release from prison while Mohammed Badie, the supreme guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, was arrested by Egyptian authorities and 38 prisoners suffocated to death in an Egyptian jail; four rockets were fired from south Lebanon into northern Israel, one of them intercepted by Iron Dome, prompting an Israeli airstrike in response; Syrian missiles fell on the Lebanese town of Harmel, a well-known Hezbollah stronghold; dozens were killed in Iraq in a series of terror attacks… and the list goes on. Why Syria?

The UN needs to take the lead.
