Cowardly nations should speak up
Except Obama, and then even members of his own party who voted to go to war with Iraq have lost their spine. And except for the old warrior, John McCain, Republicans only find theirs when think that they can make Obama look bad. No, bombing Assad's military won't stop the war and it's probably not in our best interest to do so, but when do we get interested in stopping the murders of hundreds of children by a brutal ruler? When is it in our best interest to stop the use of poison gas, or how about a nuclear bomb? When will the best interest of the rest of the planet include stopping war? Where are you China? Where are you Russia? When do you join the human race?
It would be nice if we could just withdraw to this side of the oceans and say to the rest of them, fix your own damn problems and don't come whining to us when the going gets rough. Nice, but not possible anymore. It's just too small planet now.
