  •  Yes, and I will support Syrian intervention when (0+ / 0-)

    we decide to sign the treaty that bans the use of land mines and when we give up the use of phosphorous and depleted uranium in ammunition.  We can't know if people who died a slow agonizing death from a gunshot wound to the belly suffered more than those who died from being gassed with Sarin.  We do know that those who were burned alive in the WWII Dresden fire bombings are just as dead as those incinerated in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  The idea that we can impose more gentlemanly ways of killing in war harks back to the age of chivalry, and we ought to give it up in favor of humanitarian relief projects that might actually prevent war.
