On Opinion: U.S. must take the lead on Syria

I think that no action should be taken without consulting Russia. The last thing the USA needs is another unwinnable proxy war like Vietnam, which was in simplicity a conflict between China and the USA with the Vietnamese citizens stuck in the middle. Korea is another example.

This situation is perfect for Obama and his trademark lead from behind cluelessness. Simply wait for another country to take the lead in this one and either 1 take credit if it works or 2 blame the other guy. Hey it's worked for the last 5 years

Why is it always on us (US)? Let the UN put together a "task force" and go deal with it. God knows if Obama orders a drone strike and some nutball twenty-something idiot from the US is killed in it, the neo-cons would get their panties in a knot. Syria is a can of scorpions. Let somebody else open it. Alas, even then we'll (sigh) have to jack with it.
