    ...is stopping one while it's still in progress, no?

    What would be better, putting someone in prison for killing 100,000 people, or stopping their ability to kill when they've only racked up 10,000?

    I'm not for bombing things willy-nilly, but if they want to launch tactical strikes against positions that are deploying chemical weapons that stand to kill thousands, then I say launch away.

    As someone once said, it does no good for the sheep to pass declarations against eating meat while the wolves remain of a different opinion.   Pacifism is no virtue when being peaceful lets others die.

    I don't think the point is just "to bomb the shit out of something," if it stands to stop chemical weapons from being used.  If we use missiles, the targets are going to be sites from which those weapons are deployed.

    If you have another realistic idea of how to stop it, please put that forth.  Otherwise, it just looks like your desire not to bomb things is more important than keeping chemical weapons from being used against people.   And I'd say that was misplaced concern.
