there has to be a reason. The Saudis and Qataris, the Israelis, whatever. Whomever is getting something it ain't the American people. There is absolutely no reason any American should want to be involved in Syria.
It should be self-evident that interventionism has reached its reductio ad absurdam long ago. chem weapons, WMDs, Kuwaiti incubators, War to end all wars, Remember the Maine.

Anatoly Karlin is Russian, so one supposes that makes him suspect in some circles. Then again, there are some of my countermen who would abandon the idea that 1+1=2 if it could be shown the devil himself believed in it.

If you aren't already reading Col. Lang at Sic Semper Tyrannis, you should be. Let me give you a taste:
Kerry informed the world that he and the president were absolutely sure that the Syrian government had used CW en masse against people in the Damascus suburbs.Evidence? He said that he had seen the videos and pictures on the internet and that they tore open the wounds of his heart once again. That was all the evidence that he mentioned except to claim that the US Government has more information that it will make available at some future time.So, it has been decided. If I were more aggressive and had more readers, I would run a contest, what will be our first post Syria aggression.
