Episode 1763: A Hawk from a Handsaw.*
For the record, I think anyone who authorizes the use chemical weapons should be tried for war crimes.
For the record, absent a beat cop on hand to slap on the cuffs, I think anyone who authorizes the use chemical weapons should be killed using the least secret and most efficacious means the military has at hand.
However the world of full to overflowing with things I wish were so but are not, and I have no stomach for sending anything in this country's arsenal -- from missiles to troops to folding chairs -- into Syria. I am also keenly aware of how much I don't know: how corroded my means of getting un-stepped-on information have become. I know how little faith so many people have in "the government" to tell them the truth, but also I know that Barack Obama is not Bush II just as Bush II was not Bush I, and Bush I was not Clinton, and Clinton was Andrew Jackson, and Andrew Jackson was not Roosevelt, and Iraq is not Syria, and Syria is not Korea, and Korea is not Granada, and Granada is not Nazi Germany (or fascist Italy or Imperial Japan), and Nazi Germany is not Afghanistan, and Afghanistan is not Czechoslovakia (also Czechoslovakia is not Czechoslovakia), and Czechoslovakia is not the Gulf of Tonkin, and the Gulf of Tonkin is not the World Trade Center, and the World Trade Center is not Guantanamo Bay, and Guantanamo Bay is not the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, and the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand is not the attack on Fort Sumter, and the shelling on Fort Sumter is not the War of 1812, and the War of 1812 is not Iraq.
All that being duly entered into evidence, if it please the court, let me conclude by adding that I am also keenly aware of how eager people like the one's in this video are to pound our round and complex world into a square ideological hole, and to treat The Truth (tm) like the bus in Speed: something that, it reaches a certain ideological momentum, they will not allow to slow down to let actual facts on or to toss the worst of the bullshit off.
Because if that happens...
