    You have no right to shame me simply because I feel strongly about exhausting diplomatic options before "a few days of air strikes".

    Downplaying the scope of a military action the USA might take does not change the fact that not everybody (we are also Americans and entitled to an opinion without being shamed for it) thinks we are justified in unilaterally policing the rest of the world..

    And you have no right to shame me for disagreeing with you about "what is right". Since when do you get to decide "what is right" and impose your opinion on me?

      ...that in order to further whatever diplomatic options exist, that a paper tiger needs to be perceived by Asad et al as a real threat?  If Obama, Kerry, HR Clinton, are ALL singing from the same hymn sheet, is it possible that this Administration is doing exactly what progressives want it to do, but with a heavy dose of realpolitik thrown in?

        I won't argue against paper tigers - I simply resent being told this (emphasis mine):

        Obama and Kerry are standing up for what is right, and shame on all the Americans who are not behind this effort.
