History 2335 - Foreign Relations of the United States in the 20th Century and Beyond last term there, captain.

And yes, Russia was...20 years ago. How can you possibly make the correlation that Russia was meddling internationally in 1986 with an invasion of Syria?

Do you have even the slightest idea how many more millions of Muslims we'd piss off for absolutely no reason?

If you don't answer the question we will all assume you are twelve.

The people have spoken. The 2004 election was a mandate. Resolution 1441 affirms everything.

Peace

Russia was meddling in the middle east. Yemen is split. a portion of the country is communist thanks to Russia.

There are surely more subtle ways of acheiving those ends, things that have not been exhausted. The defection of Abdul Halim Khaddam certainly raises questions of internal stability.

We will not invade Syria or Iran. Unlike defeating a failed state (Afghanistan) and one tattered by 15 years of sanctions (Iraq), Syria and Iran are organized enough to create, at least, a more drawn out conflict. Our military is also pretty much as stretched out as it gets right now, so they don't exactly have the room (or budget, for that matter) to start a four-front "war on terror."

In terms of Iran, a matter of patience could yield a rather liberal government in a generation or two. The best course of action in Iran, probably, is to lob a few missiles at their nuclear facilities if the UN determines that Iran is a nuclear weapons threat. Israel did this to Iraq in 1981.

Syria would probably fall quicker than Iran, considering that even Israel's military capability dwarfs that of Syria, but again, unless you're interested in another protracted and expensive insurgency, it would probably be best to leave Syria alone, while continuing to keep an eye on it and continuing to freeze assets of likely offenders.

I asked you first. Anyway, didn't your mother ever teach you that it isn't polite to ask a lady her age?
