Dead Is Dead
Support for military action in Syria (albeit surgically sanitized and limited) is mind boggling. The mixed bag of politicians suggest we assist rebels who just recently assaulted the village of Maaloula, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These people are anti-Semites, anti-Christian and in some factions anti-Muslim——-and this is the group we should support !
Assad has killed over a hundred thousand souls thus far. Now he kills over a thousand by gas and we’re outraged! Dead is dead! regardless if by gas or bullet. Indeed, a good lawyer appealing to America’s twisted thinking in this situation may even make a good case that Assad’s latest assault on humanity is “mercy killing.”
