Furthermore, what did US gov't do to intercede in Darfur and other nations internal affairs when millions were starved to death or tortured...Tianeman Sq, when China mowed down protestors with tanks .. and several other genocides not unlike this? Mah nishtanah halaylah hazeh (why is this night different than any other nights)?
Intervention such as lobbing a cruise missile at Assad's military forces or weapons stores will not lead to anything positive. Rapping Assad's knuckles will not cause more compassion for a morally impaired Assad. 2 wrongs are still 2 wrongs. Since when is any of this an example of a moral high ground or performing as an example of a democratically governed nation?
Laying on of cruise missiles on Assad will cause him to do what? Yes...that's right...he will do what he did again. Then what is the next step? How stupid does our gov't think we are? oh wait..i know the answer there. Let's hope incompetent Congress will vote this down...they've obstructed some potentially good legislation - why not block something morally reprehensible for a change?
