Syria: What if the roles were reversed?


What if the USA's ally England was fighting a civil war and had gassed a bunch of rebels? Let's say Russia moves its navy in and threatens bombing the English regime because of international law. Let's also say it is in America's best interest to protect the English regime. What do you think the USA would do?

A. Basically what Russia is doing now, almost exclusively engage diplomatically, try to talk the Russians out of attacking.

B. Talk to the Russians about standing down, but shove a huge fleet in and be aggressive about a time table for their ships to leave. Basically making the negotiation, "Leave or we will sink your boats."

C. Your own answer

This admin?

Bow. Scrape. Submit to Putin.
Bush Clinton and the rest? Probably blockade, stand-off, and threaten a frick-you-motherfricker until Russia backs down

Even if the dinky Russian navy looked like Reggie Love and Obama was swinging our super aircraft carrier like a BBC?

You're still saying he wouldn't PIITB?

Hope the Russian leader's name was Obama?

Yes.

Obama has no concept of the use of the military as a prohibitive force. He uses it for direct warfare and to assist rebel muslim extremists to control countries.

Our navy makes the Chinese navy look like a rowboat with a rubberband gun. Obama bows and scrapes every opportunity.

China and Russia say jump, Obama says "how high?"

So the USA has military dominance, but Obama does not use it correctly?

Some might argue that the reverse did happen in 2008, when the whole world wanted to punish Israel for using white phosphorous to massacre civilians in Gaza, including 400+ children, but the U.S. used its veto at the U.N. to protect Israel from sanctions.

I'd be inclined to believe that Russia had perhaps funded the "rebels", supplied them with weapons, orchestrated the gas attack, and blamed it on England in an attempt to sell the world an excuse for picking a fight.

C: Find an excuse to pick a fight with Syria and Iran.
