I'm not entirely sure what would be wrong with bombing Assad for a bit (taking out some military and/or political targets) just to make a point.

Why the hell do we need to make a point? I'm kind of sick of all the points we've been making.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki were sort of points at a time when it seemed appropriate. Now I fail to see how it does. I'll go along with Pope Francis this time.

Spent enough time over there I think I know what's appropriate, and this isn't it. If Assad wants to declare war on the US then revisit the question. Otherwise what do we want with choosing sides in a conflict our government obviously doesn't understand for solely political reasons.
