  •  Ambassador Power advocates protecting innocent (9+ / 0-)

    civilians with a volley of Tomahawks which will kill a few more thousand of them.

    No, thanks.

    If she were really interested in protecting innocent civilians why doesn't she advocate that the US government stop what it has been doing covertly since the beginning of this civil war and is doing increasingly openly: aiding the rebels to kill even more innocent civilians?

    Not to mention the financing by our mates (cronies? proxies?) Qatar and Saudi (the most anti-democratic, theocratic, autocratic, feudal states in the Middle East) of the Jihadist rebels linked to Al Qaeda who have been massacring minority communities (especially Christians) in the parts of Syria they get to control? Why not a word from Ms. Power about these midsdeeds?

    We need to cast aside this mentality whereby we think we have the right to solve all problems by having recourse to violence, to killing.

    We're shocked by a naked nipple, but not by naked aggression.
