Should we be involved in another WAR?

The facts are that we are heading into another conflict this time in Syria.
Possibly as early as this coming Thursday. Currently it is the Syrian Government, against the Opposition. Who is the Opposition? We don't really seem to know? Are they part of Bin Laden's evil force?
Chemical Weapons have already been used. Who used them? Should the USA continue to police the world? There are a lot of unanswered questions!

As the OP, I am asking from each of you just one question and that is, BASED ON THE ABOVE UNKNOWNS, SHOULD WE BE INVOLVED IN ANOTHER WAR???
This is not a DEBATE THREAD, but rather your opinion, yes, or no!

For me, NO........

No... I,We, have spilled blood, and squandered treasure "Helping" that region for decades and they despise us. No matter what we do to help the rebels, we will end up fighting them too eventually (Bin Laden Anyone?). As a vet and an American who has given up on the region my vote is absolutely not!

It doesn't matter what We The People think. Your children will be sent to die for profit, again. There will never again be a time America is at peace. There will never again be a time America abides the Constitution. We are a military state and we maintain a warrior class.

We ARE Sparta, and will suffer the same fate.

(And we know al Qaeda has already infiltrated the rebels, you know the rebels ambassador Stevens died supplying arms to? Yea, those guys. We already gave arms, again, to our enemy... Perpetual war says what????)

Totally agree with this.

Same here. I treat active duty soldiers who are messed up by useless wars. I've also lived overseas and know it's rare to see these poor countries change for the better. They will go with whoever pays them a dollar more a day. Get out and let them take care of their own business. The only war we need right now is for some General to land Blackhawks on the White House lawn and take it back.

If you're one of the elite who funds both sides and makes billions off of the death and destruction of others, then hell yes! (Really need a sarcasm font...)

No, its gotten to messy for there to be a "good side". It really does look like it would come back to bite us regardless of a "side". That said, if we get involved, it may very well become another Iraq, if not worse.

I'm conflicted. I HATED the decision to take on Iraq under a thin pretense of WMDs. But, I do see a line. Using chemical weapons, against anyone, in our world is beyond inexcusable ... When Iran was our so-called friend we sat by and did nothing when MANY more Iraquis were gassed...

We have a history (polically) of misunderstanding the world

Are there conflicts that get resolved by other countries in this world? seriously? I hate how we seem to have our noses in everything that happens in the world. I feel as though so many countries hate us for getting involved so often.
While I agree with Senior Chief about the chemical weaponry, I just don't want to delve too deep into this one.

NO! Let them kill each other. When they are done and turn their attention to us then deal with them.

Absolutely not. War never solves anything and creates a cycle of violence and destruction that never really gets broken.

We're going to cause more damage to a country like Syria than good. Kind of like most of the other countries we've "helped". Looks like the only people we should be worried about is our selves at the moment.

I don't think we should engage in another war however, I wouldn't be opposed to cramming a J-DAM down ASSADS throat. We have our ships on standby, as does Russia. Russia is pro-Syria. If they don't play their cards right, we could have WW3 on our paws.

After seeing Kerry's speech today, on trying to convince the American people that we need to go to war again, unfortunately it looks like it is about to happen.
Why our government continues to feel that we must Police the world, is totally beyond me!

Unfortunately I can't trust any politician at the moment, regardless of party. They're all crooked as a dog's hind leg. That being said, we do NOT need to needlessly spend the lives of our servicemen/women in another do-nothing war in the middle-east. W set an appalling precedent with that...continuance is not necessary.
