There’s a lot of war mongering going on under the banner of defending Syrian children against regime gas attacks. There’s a lot of admiration for Nikki Haley & appeals to Trump to bomb the hell out of Syria. Like the US did in Raqqa & Mosul? Like they operate in Afghanistan or bankroll in Gaza? The distinctions between the war mongers for Assad & those against Assad escape me–because there are no meaningful distinctions between those who look to bombers for liberation. The same political forces who denounce the western left ad nauseam are not that far removed from the Assadist right when it comes to militarism. They should stop hiding their war mongering asses behind Syrian children.
