  •  The bullshit 'Degrade' argument (8+ / 0-)

    is the same 'mushroom cloud' bullshit that Bush peddled.

    We should not let anyone get away with a chemical attack but here is Ms Power's bullshit and lies:

    1. Assad is monster, a baby killer, but we will let him live. We are going to 'degrade' his ability which means kill some of his soldiers, some innocent civilians which have children as well.

    2. Japanese terrorists released Sarin in a subway; as if Assad does not have the ability to release Sarin with 'degraded' weapons

    3. What if Al-Qaeda types get hold of these weapons? They may not have the ability to make Sarin, but they most likely will figure out how to use them

    4. This is ONLY ABOUT tipping the balance of power because at this pace the rebels will lose.
