I understand the need to say escalation is wrong here. But I'm not too concerned about calling up 50-100 military " advisors " when there are thousands and thousands of privately controlled mercenaries ( contractors ) roaming around in what was once called a caliphate. You know, before the current maps were pulled out of thin air, just over a century ago. But, there's lots of viewpoints on this Syria situation; why a possible ceasefire is being discussed as a cover story for more mischief or the idea that the U.S. and its' allies what to provoke a bigger fight. As history shows consistently, ending these disasters takes a lot more effort than starting them. ( hint, hint ). And, I think these people calling for the U.S. to take in hundreds of thousands of refuges, are playing with a giant domestic political conflagration, not just a fire. Saudi Arabia and the GCCs need to take the lead here ( fat chance, that ). Or, let's start relocating them to states with a less urban demographic and has 2 Republican Senators. I would gladly support sending these MENA refugees to Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Wyoming, Mississippi, Louisiana, S. Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Kentucky, Tennessee, S. Carolina, Texas, N. Carolina, et al. You know, where all the heroic, flag waving, gung ho, patriotic, Christian 'Murkans live ( And, where Hillary plans to end the Sanders campaign ). About 80,000 yearly, for the next decade, should pretty much cure their lust for blowing up millions of people and their countries, indiscriminately. Sick jerks that they are, of course. Or, just send them to Wall Street and Washington, D.C. They've got the stolen money to pay for it. Yeah, that's the ticket!
