    A US attack on Syria will Prolong the War
    Perhaps that's the idea.

    •  We have to destroy Syria in order to save it. (11+ / 0-)

      This version of the Best and the Brightest seems no better and certainly no brighter than the original. Neither they nor their DKos supporters give any indication they've considered what happens after American "humanitarian" intervention.

      Whether we intend to prolong the war, that's a very likely outcome. Who benefits from that? Are we fighting on behalf of al-Quaeda? ...or is our desired conclusion a Syria fatally and permanently splintered into warring mini-states, locked in mutual hatred and spiraling into an endless abyss of ethnic cleansing and escalating violence?

      There are few possible near-term futures for tormented Syria that aren't even worse than the awful present. If we add to the carnage, we hasten the realization of one of those futures.

      The ardent advocates of Peace Bombs might stop to consider that.

      When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill...

      We need proxy states or broken nations over there, not sovereign states  that don't follow our directions.

      How we gonna rule the world if peace breaks out?
