Obama, Cameron and Hollande say--'Yes we can.' You idiots!

Most people probably say---'No you mustn't!' What can the West and it's allies in the Gulf Region possibly gain from bombing the Syrian regime in an attempt to 'punish' the Assad Government? I do not agree that China and Russia are objecting for totally valid reason but they do have a point. All the proposed actions will do is add flames to an already dangerous situation. Young American/allies lives will be lost---for nothing other than a 'slap in the face' and a 'hand-up' to a group of 'rebels' who will eventually turn and 'beat up' on its neighbours and make a volatile region even more unsafe, to say nothing of the possibility of allowing yet another country to fall to fundamentalist of the very worst kind. That the West has helped in the spread of this movement cannot be ignored either.
Yes, we must make it clear that chemical weapons are a curse on humanity but please note:  conventional weapons have killed far more in the present debacle. Dead is dead in anyone's language.
The USA and its allies, plus China, Russia and the remainder of the world must put aside their own agendas and work with the UN to find a solution to the problems that keep feeding the rise of the 'extreme.' Unfortunately, the propensity of nations to look only to their own interests; and then only certain sectors within those countries that link beyond nationalism and connect 'globally; that is the true driving force for these terrible events.
