The real reason Obama is going to war with Syria has nothing to do with chemical weapons

Ultimately, the Syrian rebels would have already been defeated — and thousands of lives spared — if they had not been receiving support from the US and other countries. The US-backed rebels have said that a pre-condition for peace is “Assad must go;” but this demand does not coincide with the reality on the ground: the rebels are in no position to demand this, and the US is using this unrealistic demand to artificially lengthen an already-bloody war.
Obama can either use his immense influence to end this bloody conflict now by withdrawing support to the rebels, or he can extend the conflict and further tear to shreds the social fabric of the Middle East, while risking a multi-nation war that history will denounce as an easily preventable holocaust.
