Will the U.S. be drawn into Syrian civil war?

June 22, 2013 

S hould the Unites States wait out the Syrian civil war, or join the rebels for a victory over President Bashar Assad. President Barack Obama is hearing strong arguments for both courses of action. This week, Obama tried a compromise by agreeing to send arms to the rebels, a move that appears to have pleased no one. If the U.S. engages in Syria, will it be another way that costs American lives and drains our economy?
