To those who voted yes: Haven't you read any article or watched any news programs for the past decade. Violence has NEVER disappeared after we sent in the military to any place. If the UN cannot handle the world's crises, they need to be disbanded and tossed out of the US. We'd save a lot of money if we didn't support this organization, for all the "good" they do. The US has got to stop being the world's police force. We have far too many problems right here at home.
People are being slaughtered by their own government with no way of fighting back. Now, what if you were in their position? Would you want outside help or would you be a pacifist and wait for the goon squads to come though on their next sweep to tie up you and your family for a shot behind the ear. Your female family members might not be so lucky. Rape is a common thing for these people as a way of humiliation before they are killed. Personally, I would have no problem in providing them with weapons to fight back.
You begin by appealing to the suffering of those opposing the government, then water it down. I too would have few problems supplying weapons to the opposition. But remember, that's what Charlie Wilson did in Afghanistan. Let's keep our exposure low, even lower than we did in opposing Gadaffi.
Good jobs in Iraq are hard to come by these days. Syria could help put a lot of unemployed contractors back to work. I'm starting to give up on ever getting a job in Iran...
