Response to DemocratSinceBirth (Reply #25)

28. No, I didn't....

You inferred that (incorrectly).

My point is that an "act of war" depends on the beholder. And I daresay that cruise missile strikes will be viewed as an act of war by the Assad regime as well as by Russia and Iran. Assad has threatened to launch attacks against Israel if we intervene, and Israel will almost certainly respond. That's very likely to draw Iran into the conflict and will almost assuredly cause even more violent upheaval from Baghdad to Cairo.

So if you're looking to create a massive clusterfuck that will cost the lives of thousands of innocent civilians, then please proceed. I'm just wondering when Americans are going to learn that not every problem can be solved by the application of high explosives.
