We have to stop Assad from using chemical weapons on his own people!
As I state that I feel like I’m being attacked by the Right who want to crucify Obama with the same arguments sane people used against Bush and his disaster known as the Iraq War. I’m under attack from the Left who want no war at any cost, and I’m even under attack from my co-blogger here at STL, Paul Phillips.
Now I don’t care about any lack of evidence that isn’t 100% collected or any unfinished investigations. I don’t care about power vacuums and the who’s and what’s about Al-Quaida amongst the Syrian rebel forces.
What I am confident about, judging by all the evidence I’ve seen, is that most likely Assad is behind these attacks despite what the pundits on the isolationist sides say.
And I can’t stand seeing anymore vids on T.V. and the internet of babies being carried into hospitals limp and lifeless, or choking on the affects of the chemical attack. I can’t stand seeing anymore vids of long rows of shrouded corpses with no blood traceable through those white shrouds.
Now I know there will be civilian deaths associated with our strikes against Assad. And I know he may increase his use of chemical weapons against the Syrian people in an attempt to curb the American attacks. But something has to be done.
As you can tell by reading into this post this far that I am very emotional about this issue and, in all honesty, I may not be the best person to be in the White House making these decisions. But I can’t stand seeing anymore babies, choking to death, at the hands of the murderer Assad.
Maybe it’s revolutionary Guevar-ist in me, and contrary to many Leftists, there is a place for violence in the maybe not-so-sure realm of politics. Let the Syrians choose who they want to fill that power vacuum. Is that our decision or theirs? And I don’t know what the best strategy would be to attack Assad with would be. That’s the Pentagon’s job, not mine despite the fact that I think I know everything. I’m rarely handing it off to the boys and girls in uniform.
We have do something and I can’t believe so many are against this righteous action.
