    Argue about the precise number of Syrians gassed to death, but the immutable fact remains that Syrians were killed because of a poison gas attack. What is to be done about it?

      before you do ANYTHING about it.

      What he's saying here is less solid than what he said a few days ago. And that's the point of this diary, that a crack has opened in the certainty that Assad is the one responsible.
      "or at least generals under his charge " includes his brother who, by all accounts, is far more vicious than Bashar is. Is it still an official Syrian policy if one of his Generals acted without authorization?

      If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

    •  well, gosh does it matter who did it? (0+ / 0-)

      i suppose you could say that whoever did it, they're in syria now and just bomb syria randomly hoping that you've adequately punished whoever did it.

      i mean, it does follow obama's logic.  since assad is not to be targetted, we are going to make some other group of syrians the whipping boys for what obama wants us to believe is assad's action.
