What to do in Syria

Several sources estimate that deaths in Syria from the "Arab Spring" violence  to be between 10,000 to 14,000 since the beginning of 2011.  We have argued about what to do:  sanctions; ask the Russians for help; a no fly zone; arming the rebels (whoever they are).  We just don’t seem to know what to do.

In the same period of time, there have been 20,276 deaths along the Mexican border in the drug war.  At least we knew what to do there:  Arm the cartels and the criminals. Oh, and investigate and sue any state that wants to keep unregistered people from voting in US elections (not that this has anything to do with the Mexican drug wars, but it does seems to be a priority with the Obama’s DOJ).

Maybe the problem in Syria is that we cannot figure out who the bad guys are.  If we could, Holder and Obama could give them guns to kill more people.
