Poking the Syrian Ant Hill

ARE WE GETTING READY TO POKE THE SYRIAN ANT HILL?  ARE WE LIKE THAT LITTLE KID WITH A STICK?  WE ALL KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU STIR THAT BIG ANT BED IN THE BACKYARD.  IT LOOKS AS THOUGH PRESIDENT OBAMA IS POISED TO STRIKE AT THE SYRIAN REGIME OF ASSAD WITH A FEW CRUISE MISSILES AND PERHAPS A LIMITED NUMBER OF B-1 BOMBER STRIKES.  STRIKES IN RESPONSE TO THE RECENT CHEMICAL ATTACKS ON CIVILIANS.  IF THAT IS THE FULL EXTENT OF HIS ACTIONS THEN I FEAR ALL WE WILL BE DOING IN POKING THE ANT HILL.   AN ACTION THAT WILL JUST LEAD TO THE SPREADING OF THIS CONFLICT INTO NEIGHBORING STATES SUCH AS LEBANON AND JORDAN.  UNLESS WE ARE ABLE TO INFLICT DECISIVE DAMAGE ON THE ASSAD REGIME, DAMAGE THAT WILL RESULT IN HIS OVERTHROWN.  EITHER DESTROY THE ASSAD REGIME OR JUST STAY OUT.  WE CAN'T PLAY AT WAR, WAR IS NOT A GAME---TAKE NO PRISONERS!
