President Barack Obama has been warned that without U.S. intervention Syria would threaten the Middle East.
The Brookings Institution asserted that Syria could turn into a failed state with the potential to threaten its neighbors. In a briefing for Obama, the institution said the president must intervene to facilitate a transfer of power should the regime of President Bashar Assad fall.
Remember, Russia has effectively threatened nuclear war if the US invades Syria. Now if nothing is done, Syria could turn into a failed state.
