Protracted conflict persists. No end in sight looks near. Full-scale war on Syria could be much worse. Hundreds of thousands might die. Destruction would be horrific. Developed areas would be turned to rubble. Human suffering would be extreme.

Doran and Boot say grab the opportunity and do it anyway. Go around the UN and act. Free Syrian Army fighters can't do it on their own. They need air power like against Libya.

They want focus placed on Aleppo and Damascus. They're Syria's two most important cities. Assad will go to the wall defending them. Imagine the potential bloodbath if NATO gets involved.

Doran and Boot urge it. They endorse "creat(ing) a countrywide no-fly zone, which would first require taking apart Syrian air defenses."

It "could then be extended to provide the kind of close air support (with) NATO warplanes"."

Washington must "take the lead"."(O)nly our Air Force and Navy have the weaponry needed to dismantle Syria's".air defenses with little risk."

Little risk? Neither writer cares how many hundreds of thousands may die or perhaps that Syria may be ravaged to ruins. 

Warmongers omit these considerations from their calculus. Dominance, plunder and exploitation alone matter. That's what imperialism is all about.
