  •  I think there are lots of progressives... (0+ / 0-)

    ....who, if they had a magic button that could give Assad a bad itch or a headache, wouldn't do it because they just don't feel they have any moral authority to do anything, ever.

    You know, I sometimes think if I could see, I'd be kicking a lot of ass. -Stevie Wonder at the Glastonbury Festival, 2010

    •  Yeah. Progressives who don't like war suck. (4+ / 0-)

      Because, obviously, the only option available to this administration is to kill some Syrians.

    •  not me (0+ / 0-)

      if i had a magic button that could explode assad's head, i'd press it.  i'd have pressed it long ago, actually, because i think his use of conventional weapons has been egregious enough to qualify him for instant hell.

      if somebody were to assassinate the guy, i'd be dancing.  some people need killing.  yes, if i had a magic explodey button, i'd feel up to judging who does.  it's probably good that i don't, since absolute power corrupts.  i might convene a committee to protect me from that, but we all know how that goes. leaders.

      primarily i don't care for random syrians to be killed in the name of saving them from assad's evil gas attacks (if they're even his), with the usual euphemisms about "collateral damage".  i don't even see how tossing a few tomahawks into the mess that is syria could do anything positive, and i can instead see a whole lot of negatives.
