Great Satan's Highest Levels of Warcraft have laid it out to play it out with a plot for Syria:
A campaign to tilt the balance from President Bashar al-Assad to the opposition would be a vast undertaking, costing billions of dollars, and could backfire on Great SatanPic - “While there are shifts in momentum on the battlefield, Bashar al-Assad, in our view, will never rule all of Syria again.”
The options, which range from training opposition troops to conducting airstrikes and enforcing a no-fly zone over Syria, are not new. General Dempsey provided details about the logistics and the costs of each. Long-range strikes on the Syrian government’s military targets would require “hundreds of aircraft, ships, submarines and other enablers”
Great Satan is ready to carry out options that include efforts to train, advise and assist the opposition; conduct limited missile strikes; set up a no-fly zone; establish buffer zones, most likely across the borders with Turkey or Jordan; and take control of Bashar Bay Bee's chemical weapons stockpile.
“All of these options would likely further the narrow military objective of helping the opposition and placing more pressure on the regime. Once we take action, we should be prepared for what comes next. Deeper involvement is hard to avoid.”"No less than an act of war, we could inadvertently empower extremists or unleash the very chemical weapons we seek to control.”Training, advising and assisting opposition troops, he wrote, could require anywhere from several hundred to several thousand troops, and cost about $500 million a year. An offensive of limited long-range strikes against Syrian military targets would require hundreds of aircraft and warships and could cost billions of dollars over time. Imposing a no-fly zone would require shooting down government warplanes and destroying airfields and hangars. It would also require hundreds of aircraft.An order to establish buffer zones to protect parts of Turkey or Jordan to provide safe havens for Syrian rebels and a base for delivering humanitarian assistance would require imposing a limited no-fly zone and deploying thousands of American ground forces.In describing a mission to prevent the use or proliferation of chemical weapons the effort would require a no-fly zone as well as a significant campaign of air and missile strikes.“Thousands of Special Operations forces and other ground forces would be needed to assault and secure critical sites"
