Libs im confused.....If you want to stay in Syria what would your mission be exactly, and how long would it take to carry out?
ED- So you just kind of want to hang around Syria while Russians murder civilians? That sounds like a pretty crappy mission. But you are right about attacks on the homeland. Perhaps this will get the democrats to re-think their open borders policies, and now understand why we opposed Obamas idiotic plan to import 250,000 Syrians without being vetted.
Manny- Sounds like you want another endless war. The "strategy" you laid out is exactly how Vietnam started.
David- So what is the smarter way the democrats have proposed?

For short money, we can keep the Syrian Kurds in place, the Turks back where they belong (in...wait for it now, Sports Fans!...lol...TUR-KEY!!!), the Iranians west of the Euphrates, and the Russians doing only moderate damage to civilians.
The Kurds are the ones who defeated ISIS. While our support was critical to their success, they did the fighting and the dying. Last I heard, they lost 12,000 fighters. Read: WE OWE THEM.
For those who haven't been following the story, ISIS will be attacking us here in the homeland if we don't keep them either locked-up or busy on the battlefield in Syria. It's the Kurds who have been doing both; read: NO ONE ELSE has been getting the job done. Doh!
The fact that even "liberals" understand these simple fact should tell ya sumpin', nome sayin', Sports Fans.

The mission would be to aid and assist local groups in fighting radical jihadism. The length of time it'll take is the amount needed.
The idea is to help the people stabilize their own region on their terms, and get it running in a way that makes it hard for terrorism to propagate.Source(s): I mean, we just provide extra firepower only when needed. The locals will do most of the heavy lifting, and take the casualties. Therefore, the outcome feels like theirs, and thus legitimate to majority of the population.

Of course we want out of Syria, we just wanted it done in a smarter way that didn't betray our allies. And the military seems to agree.
