The trouble with Syria is that it’s getting harder and harder not to ignore the civil war when estimates of the dead are reaching close to a hundred thousand, and with what looks a lot like genocide happening.  To put that number in perspective, U.S. casualties in both Iraq and Afghanistan (pictured) since 9-11 pale by comparison.

So how many mass graves does it take for American and coalition intervention? An important question to think about.
