That must be good news for the supporters of the war against Syria!   There is a new ally for the intervention:

Albania to support US action in Syria

Now that the administration secured the support of Albania, they must feel much more confident.  Especially as this morning they also secured the support of McCain, Graham and Boehner.

So it appears that the coalition of the willing includes France, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and Albania.

Of course, at least 3 of the countries in that list have brutal dictatorships (SA, Qatar and Bahrain), but thats ok I guess.    Who cares that the UK refused to follow and so did almost all european allies?

The whole thing is pure insanity.   The intense pressure by Kerry and others on members of the congress and senate to vote for an illogical war is incomprehensible.

Never mind  that  there is no convincing evidence that Assad ordered the use of the chemical weapons or that he had a motive to use such weapons.   Never mind that there has been evidence that the jihadist rebels used chemical weapons in Syria in the recent past.   Nothing matters.   There is a march to war, with the enthusiastic support of the media, especially CNN and Fox News.

Hopefully the members of congress will show integrity and courage and vote NO to this new insane war.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
