  •  Obama's intent (3+ / 0-)

    is about discouraging production and use of CW globally.  He cares about the victims, but that is not the main reason for the mission in mind.  The attackers knew that most victims would be non-combatants at sleep in their beds.  It is despicable.  But this is not about that.

    My open questions:  

    What is it about this specific use of chemical weapons that demands some form of example must be made as a deterrent to other dictators or militants?  

    Are the decades of international collaboration to restrict certain weapons at risk if we don't respond?

    I'm not liberal. I'm actually just anti-evil, OK? - Elon James White
