More Push to Intervene in Syria

At the end of December, I posed the question of whether the U.S. should intervene in Syria. I noted that the "anti-war" liberals were pushing for intervention, but, in my opinion, intervention was not warranted. With the recent purported chemical weapon attack, that no one can confirm, progressives are at it again. Breitbart reports:

Amid reports that chemical weapons may have been used in Syria, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is calling for the U.S. to do whatever is necessary to secure remaining chemical weapons in that country--even if that means putting boots on the ground.
Graham said he is deeply concerned that chemical weapons will used by the Assad administration or will fall into the hands "of extremists" mingled in with the Syrian opposition.

He said "America needs to lead" on this.
Graham made it clear that the U.S. needs to try to work with her partners to get the weapons secured. But he said that if no progress can be had through diplomacy then the U.S. must go it alone.
