While the world dithers …
“British intelligence had put the number of people killed in the attacks at more than 350. The U.S. report quadrupled the death toll to 1,429. Kerry said that more than 400 of them were children.”
The world cannot afford to have monsters like Assad running free anywhere. It’s long past the time that the world should ramp up sanctions, with extreme prejudice. As far as I know France and USA are the only ones willing to do even limited punishments. Turkey wants to go much further. Turkey is right. The UN is way behind the curve thanks to Russia and China backing Assad. Shame on them.
No. Whether it’s one or thousands, the willingness of Assad to murder his own people in his own capital city shows he is a monster who must be stopped physically not just by words. Arm, train, equip and support the rebels. Bomb Assad into the Stone Age. Hunt him down and prosecute him as a criminal. Worrying about possible consequences instead of reality makes us complicit in the atrocities, makes us less than human just like Assad.
