SEE HERE “We have no clear mission in Syria. There's no explanation of what vital American interests are at stake there today amidst yet another centuries-old internal struggle between violent radical Islamists and a murderous dictatorial regime, and we have no business getting involved anywhere without one." — Sarah Palin
Why should we participate in the Civil War in Syria? Both sides are our enemies so if we have any interest at all it might be to try to make the war as long and debilitating for both sides. Unfortunately there are also innocent people trapped in the middle of this and so we might seek to end it in some equitable manner that is not focused on taking sides. We have no dog in this fight and intervention is not in our national interest at least in my view.
