Top Dem: Syria 'Big, Escalated Problem' Because Obama Waited Too Long To Act Former ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee Jane Harman: "Well, the U.S. doesn't want boots on the ground. I think there's no chance we will have boots on the ground. I have been for some time for arming the opposition we trust. This is very complicated, Andrea hinted at this, too. Hezbollah is Shiia and this -- this crescent that supports action is Sunni. Let's understand, this isn't just the Bashir group ... This is now a real full blown civil war and the missiles that were intercepted are not dumb scuds. They're smarter ... This is a big, escalated problem. I wish we had acted sooner."
