They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Syria: No boots on the ground...probably

'Boots on the ground' no longer off the table ...if you get what I mean.  Apparently, if Syria 'implodes' US forces will need to secure the CW.  Oh yes they will.

Ayman Mohammed Rabie al-Zawahiri must be enjoying the show.

Secretary of State John Kerry mixed messages Tuesday against a proposed congressional prohibition on the use of American ground forces in Syria, saying the war-torn country could “implode” and  that, if so, U.S. troops would be needed to prevent chemical weapons from falling into the hands of terrorist groups.
Testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Kerry first said he didn’t want to “take off the table” an option that might become necessary if Syria further destabilizes. Link
