I‘d almost tuned out the discussions about Syria and what appears to be an impending US intervention into a secular war that is none of our business. I’ve heard all the arguments on both sides. The president has made his pronouncement, and although he’s invited Congress to weigh in, it sounded for all the world like he’s going to launch his attacks regardless.
Then today I read this from philosophermouseofthehedge to the president:
… could you explain why it’s more important to save others’ children before our own?
If children learn by example, couldn’t you, Mr President, stand up and say “Violence is not an acceptable solution to solve conflicts. It’s cowardly.”
It is indeed. Particularly if you strike first.
