We have to stand up for what we are believed in, 
such a huge crime against humanity should not pass without any considerations. 

Otherwise, we will pay a heavy price for delayed actions. 

We have to make this decision by the right of justice, defending American values, 
morals and the fundamentals of our great nation. 

As civil world leaders, Assad must judge for his tyranny and war crimes against humanity, 
against vulnerable children's, against oppressed people was looking for freedom.

Well done...

Not a bad point. It certainly would be better to land troops there, oust the bloodthristy tyranny currently in power and then back the more democratic factions against the radical islamists.

It would have been better to have done so, like, two years ago or something, too.

Currently there are two options as for who'll be in power: 1. The current leader Bashir Assad or 2. Al Qaeda linked terrorists.  The pro western, more secular rebel forces are all but gone now, killed or replaced by the terrorist group.

So the way I see things we don't really have a good option here, not anymore, neither side is one we want to support, but as bad as Assad is what is likely to replace him is worse.

And with the American climate the way it is we do not have the political will to see an extended conflict through to the end, I present Iraq and Afghanistan as case in point.

It seems to me that although the Al-Qaeda linked terrorists have reached an unpleasantly high level of power and influence in Syria ( thanks to the West's refusal to take any action ), the more democratic resistance is not yet finished. Or is it mere wishful thinking on my part ?
Also there is the Syrian population to take into account, which in its great majority is, I believe, opposed both to al-Assad and to the Al-Qaedists. Although it is about powerless in the present circumstances, would they not support a serious Western intervention ?

I have the regret of agreeing with you, however, that the short-sighted and selfish ineptitude both of the Western governments, parliaments and public opinions seems to prevent that taking place in the foreseeable future, bringing more shameful discredit to the West and more suffering to the Syrian people… 
:( (Sad)

I'm not sure what would work with the U.S. population tired of war.  It seems a U.N. resolution might be better.  But, I am no expert.

regrettably, Russia's stance is to oppose any such intervention in the UN. Putin ( who is currently devlivering more weapons to Bashar al-Assad's army ) appears to think his policy of support to dictatorship and mass murder will make Russia into a world power again…

I wonder whether the UN is not in serious need of a deep structural change - it worked well enough at preventing WWIII and limiting violence for more than 60 years, but the world situation has changed greatly
