    Syria is a true unfolding crisis that requires a swift, strong response.
    Syria has been going on for two years, with 100,00+ dead. And even if we do strike in response to the chemical weapons attack, it will be months after the incident occurred. And, as the President himself said, the purpose of such a strike would just be punishment...a "shot across the bow", and not designed to remove Assad.

    So where does the "swift and strong" part come in?

    Not to mention that such an action would be illegal under international law. If you ever called Iraq an "illegal" war, you have absolutely no wiggle room with Syria. NONE. Unless you're just into hypocrisy.

    Dammit Jim, I'm a lawyer, not a grammarian. So sue me.
