What is Syria's strategic importance to the US and what can be done to predictably improve things with minimal negative consequences? When there is no good option, stay out. Have we learned nothing from our mistakes in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Egypt? As much as we would like the world to be a better place, the US cannot be the world's policeman. Humanitarian grounds cannot be invoked since the US has ignored Rwanda, Congo, Darfur and other atrocities.
