War with Syria

Seriously, I’m at a loss as to what President Obama is thinking by going after the #AssadRegime. There’s no point, or clear-cut interest on our part, other than to make ourselves look like complete jackasses, to go into Syria. The reason is simple, we’ve never had a strong history of interacting significiantly with the Syrians, not to the point of either the French or Turkish have, as well as the other Arab states. The French have perhaps the strongest interest of any Western power in getting rid of Assad, as they feel their national prestige is on the line.
