Oppose US Military Intervention in Syria Because ...

I oppose US military intervention in Syria because

1.) This isn't good guys against bad guys. This is bad guys against bad guys. The Assad regime is a notorious rejecter of any concept of human rights. The regime's opponents are the types to mutilate corpses and eat a human heart on camera (really -- check youtube.)

2.) The US has no influence in Syria, no cards to play. We can't say, "Do what we want or we will ... " We have no leverage.

3.) Military intervention, if not approached with a total war / win decisively at all costs strategy (what we did during WW II), always has disastrous unintended consequences and things end worse than they began. See US in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya.

Your thoughts?
