Obama v. Syria

I'm not advocating an armed response. I'm just talking about line-drawing, its perils and its consequences.

Not to be obvious, but this is more serious and consequential than setting artificial limits when rearing children. Crimes against humanity, against the "rules of war". 426 children dead so far. We don't have to worry about whether there were warnings already in place, and weather a clear line in the sand was drawn. Assad and his regime have to be removed from operational control of these weapons.

Thanks for dropping by Paul. I can't help my own stream of consciousness. I'm not belittling the human rights violations. I'm just saying you can paint yourself into a corner by setting "bright red lines" before the fact. I, frankly, have no opinion about the use of military force in Syria. I don't know how it's going to be used; against what targets it's going to be directed; what the collateral damage will be; and, what unintended consequences in the region will occur. I'm generally against the use of military force but I haven't been given an alternative scenario that might work in this case. It's always a dangerous course for America and the fact that Britain refuses to involve itself troubles me. I'd also like Obama to let Congress have a say. When we invaded Iraq and forced out all the Baathists, we arguably created a worse situation than the one we supposedly remedied. What happens if Assad is forced out? Removing him and his regime from these weapons sounds good but is it possible? And if it is, what/who will fill the vacuum?
