Some Common Sense From the American Public?

Looks like the US public is not interested in diving into Syria.

Americans strongly oppose U.S. intervention in Syria's civil war and believe Washington should stay out of the conflict even if reports that Syria's government used deadly chemicals to attack civilians are confirmed, a Reuters/Ipsos poll says.

About 60 percent of Americans surveyed said the United States should not intervene in Syria's civil war, while just 9 percent thought President Barack Obama should act.

But I have to wonder if this is a true appreciation of the total lack of strategic interest, or just deployment fatigue.
