What about "America and her allies" who have armed, funded, trained and hold diplomatic brief for the likes of Al Nusra, and Al Qaeda in the Levant?

In 1988, during the waning days of Iraq's war with Iran, the United States learned through satellite imagery that Iran was about to gain a major strategic advantage by exploiting a hole in Iraqi defenses. U.S. intelligence officials conveyed the location of the Iranian troops to Iraq, fully aware that Hussein's military would attack with chemical weapons.

Th e intelligence included imagery and maps about Iranian troop movements, as well as the locations of Iranian logistics facilities and details about Iranian air defenses. These attacks helped to tilt the war in Iraq's favor and bring Iran to the negotiating table.

We have some certified lunatics in power in the US. They think its going to be a cakewalk to invade Syria. Not counting the Russian Fleet along with the Republican Guards of Iran, Hezbollah and any Muslim who fill outraged that American forces are invading Islamic land. WW3 here we come!

A UN mandate?... Americans should be demanding that our government take NO military action without having the political guts to get a constitutionally mandated congressional declaration of war and the associated justification of why a state of war exists between Syria and the USA. Which of course there is no real justification. The real sovereign interests of real Americans are not threatened by this in any way... The only interests at stake here are the potential profit interests of international banks, oil industry titans and their all of their supporting cast.

USA and UK are not interested in human rights and only pay lip service to it otherwise they would be helping the starving people of Africa instead of causing wars in the middle east which results in the death and destruction of innocent people who are simply trying to survive day to day in their own country.
