ABSTRACT
The article makes a case for U.S. intervention in Syria. It argues that the strategic and humanitarian costs of the conflict continue to increase for Syrians and for vital U.S. interests in the Middle East. The article also suggests that the U.S. could train and arm well-vetted Syrian opposition forces, strike President Bashar Assad's aircraft and Scud-missile launchers, and drive Assad's forces from their posts.
