NBC News reports the US will hit Syria in about 48 hours, Thursday. It'll be interesting to see where this goes after that. Knowing the president, Obama may well pick a more measured response without trying to turn the tide of the Syrian civil war in the rebel's favor.
Why? Because we don't entirely trust the rebels either - many extremists and anti-US elements fighting against Syrian mass murderer, Bashar al-Assad.
At the same time, Russia, a Syrian ally, recently gave the US a black eye by granting NSA leaker, Edward Snowden, a one-year asylum. It would be a kind of payback to get rid of Assad and further isolate Iran.
So, we will attack Syria. The question is what next?
