    On the one hand, I soooooo don't want to be involved in another fucking war. I've never felt that the way to address slaughter is to use more slaughter. On the other hand, "we" did break it, (and by "we" I mean the United States because I sure as hell argued against it), so we have some sort of responsibility there. I would also point out that the problems in the middle east are largely a product of a long ended cold war and the greed and avarice surrounding a very finite resource. I could make a very strong argument for getting ourselves into intervention and off the oil addiction and leaving those people the fuck alone. Once again, Liberals like myself warned people of this outcome decades ago and once again, we were proven right.
