UK, U.N. and U.S. get jitters over Syria

Going it alone against the Syrian government is not what President Barack Obama wants, U.S. Secretary of State Chuck Hagel said Friday.  But that scenario is looking more and more likely.

A day earlier, the United States' closest ally, Great Britain, backed out of a possible coalition. A U.N. Security Council meeting on Syria ended in deadlock, and in the U.S. Congress, doubts about military intervention are making the rounds.  

Skeptics are invoking Iraq, where the United States government under President George W. Bush marched to war based on a thin claim that former dictator Saddam Hussein was harboring weapons of mass destruction.

    WHY? Is it that WE, the U.S.A., are always the ones that must do something? Everyone else is yelling & screaming BUT do not want to get involved. TALK is cheap, actions speak volumes! IF these neighboring countries are content to just talk that should tell us to do the same! WE continue to experience many, unsolved problems in OUR OWN country, yet we CAN'T keep our noses out of other peoples business! We need to stay out of this one!!!

      Where is the UN in all of this? Why are we not looking to them to intervene in these human rights violations?
