An interesting theory on the perpetual violence in Syria, brought to you by Washington Post
oddity columnist Richard Cohen:
The pity of it is that, had Obama used force early on, Assad would not have dared to gas his own people. The dead and the wounded are as much a victim of U.S. weakness and vacillation as they are of Assad’s brutality — the former made the latter possible.
Really? Is the U.S. is responsible for every country that suffers under a merciless leader? Or just Syria?
