@willpayton: I doesn't matter against who u went into war, u still state "It was necessary after WWII to keep the Soviets from taking over all of Germany and much of Europe if we (the US) werent there". So u still intervened and stopped Russia becoming even a greater world power and a threat to U.S.
@willpayton: Yes it was necessary in WWII because U.S feared that Soviet Russia would take over Europe and would literally rape U.S. The power that Russia would have controlling Europe would be incredible. They saved their own hides nothing to do with how much U.S cared for the people.
No. First i think prove is required for the use of chemical weapons because Al Assad and his forces might be framed for it. Why would Al Assad use chemical weapons when he is in a winning position and has major strategic points. Surely he knew what would be the consequences if he used chemical weapons and that U.S and other countries might try to intervene. The only scenario in which he would willingly use weapons is if he has big support from Russia and they guarantee that U.S won't intervene. Second i don't think the use of tomahawk missiles can be considered humanitarian help.
