The smorgasbord of Syria options. Which do you favor?

Good people of the DC forum: you are now the United States Congress.

I have a dozen different options in dealing with the crisis in Syria. You will vote what you prefer.

I'm sure Congress will take our lead.

A pretty exhaustive poll coming.

Keep in mind, these are the options are you are approving of as of now, based on what you know now. You are casting your vote now.

Nice to see you swinging your conservative brass balls more and more as time goes on.
I would support serious action in Syria if we had someone I could count on leading the effort. So if that makes someone a sellout RINO establishment liberal, then count me in.

BTW, I doubt that Romney has any thoughts about continuing his political career.

From what I understand both are enemy's of the US. So do nothing and let them keep killing each other. If there is a way to do something sneaky to escalate the issue without it being tied back to the US, do that so that way they kill each other off even more. But I think its best to let it be.

We could end all trade, lead an international effort for many more nations to do the same, freeze all their financial assets, completely break off relations, use any and all diplomatic sanctions at our disposal, etc etc

We can express our opinion on Syria's handling of the rebellion within their borders without some meaningless military cameo

I believe Assad's forces launched the chemical attack (with or without Assad's blessing), but that doesn't really have much to do with why I think it would be good for America to see Assad's regime toppled.
