    If we send in troops to Syria it will be another Iraq and Afghanistan we can not afford it. Egypt is falling apart and Libya also. Russia is wanting for us to go in, so they can send troops, let not forget China they would get into it also, they want oil and we want oil. Maybe WW111, boy that would be great!
