Send lawyers, guns, and money

There's one obvious outcome of the US Congressional stalling on the military strikes on Syria. Once people in the US and Europe start to dwell on the fact that they've been played like a violin by Maher al-Assad and Vladimir Putin, the easy response will be to demand all sorts of indictments of the al-Assads, and the flooding of Syria with new weapons for the rebels. It'll be a field day for international criminal specialists and weapons traders.

For ordinary Syrians, it will suck way more than US missile strikes on the Assads would have.

Heckuva job.
