For whatever it is worth, the U.S. France and Great Britain have infiltrated, interfered and done harm(for their oil) to many Middle Eastern Nations since after WWII. They hate and don't trust us for good reason.
All of this only our interference started WAY before WWII, we basically drew the map in the middle east for our own purposes, creating countries that have no historic, religious or ethnic basis. We've them stuck our oar in to topple, prop up or destabilise different govt for our own agendas.
We have no idea which side we should be on in this conflict, Assad has been a friend to the west for years and suddenly he's the bad guy, who are the opposition ? what happens if they take power etc etc
If there can be a UN resolution and UN troops can go in as a peace keeping force then i'm all for it but US and UK troops once again getting involved in things that have nothing to do with them again is ridiculous.
