Assad has more dignity in his right pinky than these two vile warmongers have in their entire bodies.
"In fact, analysts believe Hollande cares less about public opinion on Syria than his own miserable ratings, which hover around 20%.

There are no troops on the ground.”" - Vivienne Walt, "France’s Case for Military Action in Syria," Time, August 31, 2013.America and France, father and mother of the epic revolutions of the 18th century, are modern-day oppressors and tyrants. They are attacking a country that poses no threat to them and that has not attacked them. And they are making up lies to justify their crime.

Imagine what the pressure will be in Washington to actually retaliate if violence leads, as it so often does, to more violence.

Risking a major war, no matter how slim you think the chance is, ought to be done only for some incredibly important reason." - Washington's Blog, "Caveman Credibility and its Costs," September 2, 2013.
