    tho' I've found that it's usually flame bait to compare anything to Hitler. Only Hitler was Hitler.

    BTW, welcome to Daily Kos obamaisgreat. I hope to see more of your comments and learn about you.

    I'm high uintas, an old hippie who lives in Utah. I've been here almost 9 years and if you are anything like me you will find that you have now got yourself a new addiction. dkos is hard to quit.

    Welcome, again.

      yeah, it was hard.  but when it turned into "obama is right no matter what he does" i left.  i've been severely disappointed by obama (and i was exhilarated when he got elected, so i am not a sour hillary voter), and just as disappointed by progressives who turned into apologists.

      just came back to see whether this is the day that will break the camel's back at dkos.  the votes look hopeful, but i see the apologists are out in full force in the comments, because clearly we must bomb the village to save the children from the evil gas.


      in regard to the jews and hitler:  the US didn't bomb then and did in general not cover itself in glory when it came to helping jews who had already escaped from germany.  but that sure is no reason to act with military intervention now, because you know?  dead is dead, no matter whether it was gas or a bomb or mines (which the US still uses) that kill guilty and innocent alike.  have you learned nothing from iraq?

      if the US really wanted to save people rather than rattle its overly large sabre for whatever egotistical reasons, then they'd start a campaign to drop massive amounts of field medicine over syria.  because sarin is survivable and can be treated, and the meds are dirt cheap.
