  •  That's a difference without a distinction. (4+ / 0-)

    In one we have claims unsupported by third party verification that Iraq was working on chemical (and nukular) weapons.

    In the other, we have claims unsupported by third party verification that we know how used chemical weapons.

    In either case, we have official claims without third party verification regarding the justification for engaging in an attack, and pleas to trust the official sources of the claims.

    The difference, however, is that at least in Iraq we knew that we were going in without sufficient force to bring the claimed weapons of mass destruction development programs to a halt.

    Here, we are being promised up front that the action will not be sufficient force to bring the Syrian government's use of chemical weapons to a halt, even if it is credibly established by third party verification that the Syrian government was in fact the perpetrator of these attacks.
