Suggesting a bombing mission in syria is a war, is suggesting the battle of mogadishu should be named "the US-Somalian war". Hardly the case.

Who's saying it's a war? Other than the Syrian government of course....and possibly Iran, Russia and anyone else who stands to lose something.

Mr. Marbles
 
It is a civil war. We decide to bomb one faction and we join that war and open the door to any retaliation or escalation.

Dude, Obama has come out and basically said that this is really about our credibility with Iran (which implies it's also about Israel). John Kerry, Chuck Hagel, John McCain, and plenty of others have all said basically the same thing, they just mix it into a big address about protecting Syrian civilians and punishing Asaad. Anyone that hasn't realized this needs to have that medical procedure that disconnects the cranium from the rectum.

So... act of war != war.

The only reason it wasn't considered whatever you call a war is because it wasn't palatable for the press to declare a police action, humanitarian action or whatever other horseshit they call it on a country with a much smaller conventional military and our intention to destroy one thing and walk away a war. That's it. That's the only reason why attacking Syria is not war, why Somalia isn't a war, or any other stupid shit that's going to happen.

It may be a play against Iran, but there's more going on than just "Israel vs Iran." All the Gulf states are solidly aligned against Iran and have been funding the rebels in Syria. None of them are comfortable with the rise of Iran. The region as a whole still matters because of the oil. We could totally ignore Israel in the whole consideration and still want to make a play against Syria as a proxy state for Iran.

Why not be allies with Iran - far more Western than Saudi Arabia.

Mr. Marbles
 
So intervention in a civil war in an already unstable region is a good "play"? Serves our interest how? Its good for oil prices? Thanks for making that clear.

Solving the problem of violating Syrian sovereignty by...

internationalizing Syria's chemical weapons just so we can destroy them.

So, what was that about being so angry at violating Syria's sovereignty? GG RUS

Anyway
