This is a MUST READ article from the
Jerusalem Post, in my view.

The JP article cites evidence that the US is closer to intervening in Syria.

I fear that Israel, which seems to be controlling American foreign policy, is going to get its way, despite the wise counsel of General Martin Dempsey, as described in his letter to legislators and can be seen on line (See Foreign Policy Review).
They, and people like David Cameron, and those who are prone to act before they think, should remember the old Chinese proverb “Be careful what you wish for”
Even if America and the West does act and Russia sits on its hands, has anyone though through the aftermath?
Occupying the country, resettling or allowing to perish, millions of refugees?, the rise of Al Qaida? the probability of a hard line Muslim dictatorship replacing Assad and wanting to spread trouble everywhere?
If Russia and China do not sit on their hands, then have we thought through the consequences?
From where I sit and to quote General Dempsey,”there are no good options”.
We should leave well alone and attend to our own problems at home.
