  •  In theory, yes, and (2+ / 0-)

    morally too: Assad could always resign if he can't control the insubordination of his brass.  But it's entirely possible that indeed he can't control his brass.  He was always a pretty weak ruler.

        •  Yes, of course. (0+ / 0-)

          I should have added the snark tag.  

          This whole situation just seems so in-the-mirror, upside down and unreal.

          I still ask: why bomb Syria and what is to be accomplished, in a concrete sense?  And am not seeing very thorough answers from anywhere.

          And why does this NOT resemble the rush into Iraq?  Not in every single aspect, but certainly in the apparent misleading, duplicitousness, and lack of clear goal or direction.
