  2. And that about sums it up...for the moment.

    In the past few weeks, I've learned more about Syria and all the issues surrounding this dilemma than I ever wanted to know. As always, there are layers and layers of issues, players, history, agendas, etc. But one fact remains clear to me -- I don't trust Obama and his appointees to run a war - even an unbelievably small one.
