Military action in Syria
If we kill indiscriminately to maintain our reputation. We are not peaceful. We are terrorists. We have become what we despise. A missile attack is exactly that.
We should not go it alone. If US involvement in Syria is punishment for killing Syrians, it makes absolutely no sense to kill more Syrians.
This "Red line" debate assumes one side or the other can actually stop or reduce future bloodshed. In Syria, that false assumption will be deadly for US soldiers with no impact on our actual and imminent threat condition for National Security.
