The drumbeat for an American military attack against Syria continues, with President Obama making a full court press this weekend to pressure Congress to approve his plan for a limited barrage of only 300 missiles. Already however, the media reports that the American military is expanding the size of the barrage and scope of potential targets.
So far, not one word of freedom for the Syrian people from President Obama, despite all of his “moral outrage” at poison gas attacks by the Ba’ath Socialist regime in Syria in their Syrian civil war. Syria is not having a civil war for freedom; both sides of the conflict are dominated by thugs who have no intention of promoting human freedom.
The president is having a hard time convincing the American people that his planned attack is in the U.S.’s national interest. What he apparently will never understand is that it is freedom which is moral, so a “limited” sanitized missile attack which has no plan for the morality of freedom in Syria is not going to find favor with most Americans.[Email comments welcome: duoism(at)sbcglobal.net]
