As the debate on whether the United States should bomb Syria rages on and on, there is agreement on one point: Both sides are the bad guys. The forces with the rebels include those with al-Qaida links. Are they as bad as the Assad regime that the rebels are trying to eliminate? The records of both sides are much the same — savages!

The Obama administration believes Assad used chemical weapons on innocent people. Yes, some form of punishment should be leveled if the proof we have is reliable. However, the United States has waited so long in making a decision, would an attack be successful since Assad has had plenty of time to prepare for one? The element of surprise has gone with the political winds. A strike would be justified based on the evidence of use of chemical weapons, but we must never commit ground troops, and we must not get into a prolonged engagement.
