  •  As opposed to fire bombing Dresden? (0+ / 0-)

    Or nuking Japan twice?  Or dropping Napalm on villages?  Those attacks killed thousands upon thousands of civilians.  

    I'm sorry, but dead is dead.  What's the difference between being gassed to death and being burned to death?

    If the exact same number of civilians were dead in Syria, but dead by fire, there would be no calls to intervene.

    So just pretend it was fire and let the US mind it's own damn business.

    I don't want to create the next Osama bin Laden.

    •  None of those were in violation of Int Law. (1+ / 0-)

      Perhaps an arbitrary distinction, but one nonetheless.

      I personally weigh those killed by bullets and those killed by gas pretty much the same.

      •  International law is a fraud (0+ / 0-)

        It's created by corrupt bureaucrats who more often than not have stolen power from the people and are passing laws designed to benefit themselves and the top 1%.

        Please.  According to Int Law, gassing 10 people is a war crime, while butchering 1,000,000 people with machetes is just every day civil war.

        We didn't get involved in Rwanda, no reason to get involved in Syria.  I could give a shit about Int. law.
