And Obama said the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime in Syria would be the crossing of a “red line”, but when that line was actually crossed the Obama Administration did not put forward a plan to actually punish the Assad government for having done so. So you will please excuse me if I feel Barack Obama’s declarations regarding rouge nation’s having WMDs seem to me less than 100% credible.

An interesting post. It doesn’t actually respond to anything I said. Once you started talking about red lines, you just got lost.

So anyway I guess you wanted Obama to bomb Syria? Even after both parties in Congress made it clear they opposed such measures?

OK, let’s say we did some bombing, then what? If we leave it at that, we haven’t done much and Assad probably still wins the civil war. Then the question becomes, “What was the point if such a monster is still in power?” So then we take the next step, and then eventually we’re in another Mid East quagmire.

Is it possible to accept that not every crisis around the world is a mission for Team America to solve?

And I notice you didn’t respond to my other post. Go on, give it a shot.
