Why does the United States have to do anything?

When did we take the Syrians to raise? For years we've bad mouthed Assad.  Now we want to save him.

"The window is closing, we need to take action in a unified way to help bring about the transition that the Syrian people so deserve," White House spokesman Jay Carney said at a news conference.

This is Washington speak for, "we want to be in control of what happens in Syria".

Why not let the Syrians duke it out for them selves.  All we'll do by engaging in a power struggle with Russia or any of the factions in that area is piss them off, waste Billions of dollars, and, probably, in the end, waste the blood and lives of military and civilian people for something we'll regret.

We certainly need a government that does less.
