The Obama Camp says the U.S. must teach the MORAL lesion that a country cannot use chemical weapons.
The Obama Camp also has a PRACTICAL reason. It’s a domino theory. If Syria is not attacked, then that will empower Iran, and an empowered Iran will attack Israel (Iran,… right? … whose government the U.S. over threw in 1953 has to be put into its place again)
But the U.S. has little moral standing in the world after 12 years of bombing children and families in Afghanistan and Iraq (probably 5,000 kids slaughtered.)
And isn’t it all about the reflexive use of power to show that the U.S. is still top dog? Top dog at what? Creating chaos?
The situation in Syria between the rebels and the government is like a group of Christians (any kind, really) running around killing Muslims (any kind, really)--no matter whose side you take, you're defending a bunch of lunatics.
Which lunatic is supported by more than 70% of his people?
We are the lunatics that don't mind killing by only pressing on buttons (better for our conscience), aren't we big children after all?
Dr Billy, I FULLY agree with you!

According to my source of information, those children were the ones who were kidnapped by djihadists. Experts are stating that they didn't die from sarin attacks since the symptoms don't correspond. In one word, we...
