Will the West go to war against Syria? Should it go to war against Syria?
It is a finely balanced equation, or am I missing something?
Dastardly deeds are occurring in Syria. Reason to consider going to war.
War could lead to an even worse situation (e.g. a harsher government or simple chaos and anarchy) Reason not to go to war.
If we do not do something now, even worse things could happen. Reason to consider going to war.
There are other ways to express our displeasure than war. Reason not to go to war.
OK that will do on the calculations.
What is horrible and challenging for Christians is the sheer human suffering, knowing we could do something about it, and the impossible situation of Christians in Syria who are, all things considered, likely better off under Assad than under any alt.successor.
