You guys jump in there. Good luck.

We’ll watch after your women :)

Worked out okay for Germany, Japan, and Korea.”

Those were not total occupations. We set up bases there and became allies. We did not take over their governments and affairs.

Yes they held a general election under tight international observation. A clean result, al Assad scored 10.3 million out of an eligible electorate of 16.1 million.

Why invade another country who have not and do not want to harm USA. UK or EU?

Maybe the writer can show us some photos of Syrian brigades in Virginia in 1864. Looking forward to seeing those.

Options 1 through 3 fail to take into account the ‘behind the scenes’ happenings with Russia. Russia will not allow us to directly confront Assad.

I live in the United Arab Emirates and work as a teacher with Arab children in grades 6 and 7. These kids are tougher than nails, and wilder than a wolf caught in a trap. Until you have seen how they are raised firsthand, you have no idea. I should be freelancing for the state department…200,000 troops could not hold Syria since they don’t want to be held. The real solution is to stand our ground without fear and demarcate a boarder around them where they do not cross, to take in their refugees, and take occasional shots at their military targets with Cruise missiles. Add to that a no fly zone, and just put up with the MF’s until their own populace rises up against ISIS and Assad.
