The massacre of children and women continues in Syria, largely with weapons of war employed point-blank against civilian areas.
The Obama administration ‘s heart may be in the right place this time but the president has spent so much time degrading the US military and he is so much in debt to the communist wing of his party that he is paralyzed.
Ron Paul’s libertarians have it easier: The intra-societal conflict in Syria is somehow our fault and it’s none of our business how many children Assad kills as long as they are Syrian citizens. I am waiting for some Paulista to give me a high moral reason why this is the right moral position to have. Maybe, they are too ashamed to oblige,
My position is clear, always has been: When you have a chance to hurt an enemy while performing a humanitarian mission at little risk, you should not miss it. If we blew up twenty of Assad’s tanks from the air, we would change the balance of power against the dying fascist regime of the Baath part. (Saddam Hussein’s own old party.)
