A year ago, POTUS bombed Syria after a chemical attack. No one panicked. This time people are crying WWIII! What’s changed? The Russians took no action last night. They claim there was no damage and no casualties. The jury is out on that.
We’ll find out more in the coming days about the damage and any loss of life. I’ve seen people trotting out the tired old we can’t be the world’s policemen canard to claim we had no business bombing Syria. It has nothing to do with our security, they say. We weren’t threatened.
Well, perhaps you should think about this. We don’t know who has chemical weapons, but you can bet that there are regimes like Syria that do. (I know where Syria got theirs, but that’s for another day.)
