US Likely To Hit Syria This Week

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?
