What Should We Do If Syria Strikes Back at the U.S.?



What should our response be?

Syria never attacked us, but if we attack them and then they find some kind of way to hit back at U.S. interests overseas as a response to being attacked, what will we do then?

Do we think that Syria will just take their medicine and roll over?

Do we hit them again if they attack us? If they attack Israel? If Iran gets involved? If Hamas or Hezbollah someone hit us somewhere?

What do we do if this escalates?

I think it will.

if their government were to attack the US, just fricking flatten everything. Of course, this is assuming we don't instigate the whole thing (which we surely will do)

This has already been discussed in other threads. Obama talks about a limited response but once you strike another sovereign nation that is an act of war and they WILL retaliate is some form. Then it becomes an ongoing military engagement.

I'd like to think we would own up to our mistake and let it go. Unfortunately, I know better.

It's an insane cycle of war DC loves.

Lol at Obama thinking a "limited response" is going to fly against a sovereign nation.

frick the warmongers that hold our country and military hostage.

If I'm not mistaken they are already attacking us. They have launched cyber attacks on a number of U.S. web servers. This causes economic damage to the owners of those servers and is in a very real sense an attack on American soil. If they blew up a bridge on U.S. soil it would be considered an attack even if no one was hurt or died, wouldn't it?

If cyber attacks are an act of war, then we would be at war with China, Russia and any number of isolated hackers. Seems to me you are going out of your way to justify Obama's foot in mouth disease. I've said it before but I will say it again, there were: 23 U.N. resolutions regarding Iraq, Saddam had kicked the U.N. inspectors out of Iraq, a vote by our Congress authorizing action and a significant coalition of allies before action was taken against Iraq. Furthermore Saddam had used chemical weapons in a war against Iran, had used chemical weapons on his own people and had invaded Kuwait disrupting oil supplies throughout the entire Middle East. Yet, your ilk condemned Bush and Pubs as war mongers. And now you support a military strike against Syria over a civil war that is none of our business over the use of chemical weapons before the U.N. even presents a report without even a single resolution and little support from our Congress, the American people and any allies. Give me a break.

When Reagan bombed Tripoli, Khaddafy didn't take his medicine and roll over and the folks on Pan Am 103 paid the price.

I think we just need to drop Dennis Rodman into Syria. He's doing pretty good with Kim Jong Il.

With what? Russia's total military budget is dwarfed by ours. Putin isn't dumb.

As an ex-GI I would say to strikes back would be the only response and recourse one would have. To expect less is utter nonsense.

You need to keep saying it. Best comparison of the two situations I've seen. And, even with all of that, I was against the Iraq invasion because I had a pretty good idea of what would happen and that it would be a mess and I REALLY believe that we do not need to be attacking countries that do not attack us first or are threatening to do so.

If we do anything it will only be a few hundred Tomahawks from way offshore. Hit certain targets and go home. Al ldone in enogh time to enjoy the weekend. No war not strikes from Russia. In out and over. Done. Back to Miley, Facebook, Real Housewives, etc.

So what would happen if we strike targets such as Assad's palace and such with Tomahawks and so happen to take out his wife Asma al-Assad?
I am sure she is no where to be found but just wonder what the media outcome would be. In the past these are the targets.

If we attack Syria, they have every right to defend themselves. To that point, knowing what they are up against, if they have any balls, they will go down swinging.

Can Obama assire us that there will be no blowback. Reagan thought there wouldn't be any blowback when he tried to take out Khaddafy and the passengers of Pan Am 103 paid the price.
