Syrian Refugees- 2 Million Already Into Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon. [View all]

And using chemical warfare and attacking large numbers of civilians could potentially cause even larger numbers to flood into neighboring countries. Which are semi-democratic/allies of the USA.

But then, the USA intervening could also cause waves of refugees too.

And Assad is striking some of those refugee camps, btw.

UN website has a map I can't figure out how to link to but the numbers are:

Jordan- 515,000 refugees
Turkey- 459,000 refugees
Lebanon- 716,000 refugees


More than 1.9 million Syrians are hosted in the region, placing unprecedented strain on communities, infrastructure and services in host countries.

There has been a massive escalation of arrivals in 2013. Over one million Syrian refugees have registered as refugees since the beginning of 2013.

Women and children make up three-quarters of the refugee population.
The vast majority of refugees are dependent on aid, arriving with little more than the clothes on their backs.
