Krauthammer’s Take: Intervention in Syria Pointless Without Regime Change

Intervening in Syria without the goal of regime change is pointless, Charles Krauthammer said Tuesday night.

“If it’s going to be an attack, what it should be aimed at . . . [is] weakening the regime, of stopping Assad, who is now winning this war, and giving the rebels a chance of winning or weakening Assad,” Krauthammer said.
