Don't agree with you on everything, didn't agree with you on Syria. I was in the "carpet bombing" faction. The chemical sites and the roads leading from them should have been turned into Highways of Death in retribution for the war crime of killing women and children in their beds at 2 in the morning like bugs. That might make the remaining members of Unit 450 who hadn't been incinerated into charred, grinning stumps think twice about getting within concussion wave distance of their toys next time. And because liberals are in favor of international law, which has to be enforced to be more than mere words on paper.

Still, cooler heads than mine seem to have prevailed, thanks in part to the adults in the room (like BG and yourself), and that's probably a good thing, as long as all those toys are destroyed and Assad never does it again. Which is pretty much what Obama wanted anyway, and may now get without having fired a shot or spent a dollar, apart from moving some chess pieces around on the board.
