Tired of Spying on Americans?  Why Not Go Bomb Syria? 

When a president in his second term is suddenly revealed to be snooping into everyone's business by every electronic means available, the natural reaction might be to try to change the subject

Trial balloons promoting U.S. military action in Syria started popping up yet again on June 10, as media from one end of the political spectrum to the other quoted mostly anonymous sources from the Obama administration and elsewhere with reactions to proposed violence ranging from enthusiasm to dismay. 

The most widely-reported options for the nature of an American war in Syria  include:  

Ø   U.S. may send troops   

Ø   U.S. may establish no-fly zone over Syria    

Ø   U.S. may send lethal weapons support to "vetted" rebels   

Ø   U.S. may support rebels in peace talks

Ø   U.S. may do nothing 

Ø   U.S. may attack Iran 

At the same time, Secretary of State John Kerry and others have spoken on the record in favor of the June peace talks that are now scheduled for July.  The Russians, as a longtime Syrian government ally, also support peace talks (while joining with China to keep the UN Security Council from acting, although it's not clear what the Security would do, or even if it wants to do anything). 

The Russians have also been sending surface to air missiles to the Syrian government, for "defensive" purposes, which the Israelis have found offensive.  So far, the Syrians don't seem to have shot down anything flying over Syria.
