Judging by their record since y2k, the best US can do for Syria is to let it alone.I'm really sorry, but this is how I feel when seeing the results of US interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya.

There's occasional grumbling from some quarters. Oddly, though, no one seems overly eager to foot the bill for an equivalent headquarters somewhere else.

Today?Disastrous.For everyone.Given that only two nations possess anything like the attitude towards America, the matériel, and the manpower to feasibly land troops in the US-Russia and China-any such attempt would likely only follow a nuclear exchange in which the US' military capability and civilian leadership had been essentially nullified. But as Lee Corso is wont

Do moderate Americans condemn the Iraq invasion?

Yes. ...and have protested at rallies. ...and have argued with friends.  Some would thus label me as liberal for this.
