Lobbing a few cruise missiles at Syria isn't going to get rid of Assad. Moreover, the rebels aren't any better than he is. Do we want to send a couple hundred thousand American soldiers into Syria to get rid of Assad, only to learn we've just installed al-Qaeda in his place?
Getting rid of Assad's chemical weapons, on the other hand, will eliminate a huge problem and danger to Israel. If this can be done without killing anyone, let's give it a try. And wasn't getting rid of the poison gas the reason to lob those cruise missiles into Syria in the first place?
Of course, Boteach has an agenda here, which is to insult Obama every chance he can.
