    he's suggesting between the lines that the possibility exists that Assad might be acting beyond the bounds or reason. At which point considerations of deterrence become moot, since appealing to rationality might not be possible. Assad and the people around him have nowhere to go, nowhere to turn. Even Russia is beginning to hold them at arm's length, excuse the pun. There's no future for them, and this is what makes them so potentially dangerous to themselves and others.

      But if a full-on international effort is hanging like a Sword of Damocles over Assad's head, one would think that the Russians have made clear to him that there will be no "next time."

      Calling other DKos members "weenies" is a personal insult and therefore against site rules.
