Pipes Makes the Case for Not Intervening in Syria, and I Agree

I agree with my Middle East Forum colleague Daniel Pipes on this: "Syria: Arguing for U.S. Inaction." Initially, I felt we should intervene in Syria--especially over Libya--for strategic reasons, the Assad regime having been an arch enemy of the U.S. and our ally Israel. But having seen the rise of Islamism and/or chaos in the region after these regimes are toppled, I no longer feel this would be in our interest. And we can't fix every humanitarian disaster in the world. Mostly though, the ingratitude and, at times, hostility of those we've helped achieve regime change has convinced me that we're damned if we do, damned if we don't. So let's don't.
