Many crimes against humanity throughout the world have been far worse than the gassing in Syria. In Rwanda alone, anywhere from 500,000 to 1,000,000 men, women, and children were slaughtered in 1994, many by being hacked to death with machetes
Because of its military might, the U.S. is supposed to be the world’s policeman. As such, why didn’t we intervene in Rwanda to stop the slaughter of well over 500,000 Tutsi men, women and children by the Hutus? But now, because 400 children were gassed to death, Obama and John Kerry want the U.S. to intervene in a sectarian war between groups of Sunnis and the Shiites of Syria.
Before Rwanda, the U.S. turned a blind eye when in 1988 Saddam attacked the Iraqi Kurdish town of Halabja with sarin gas, killing up to 5,000 civilians. It gets even better. Declassified CIA files show that in the same year, the U.S. not only approved Saddam’s use of Mustard and Sarin gases against the Iranian army, but it also provided him with intelligence on the location of Iranian troop concentrations. Those chemical attacks killed up to 20,000 Iranians. But now Obama and Kerry are ready to go to war over the deaths of 1,400 civilians by Assad’s alleged use of sarin.
It looks as though Obama will suffer a stunning defeat because he will not be able to get House approval for a military attack on Syria. However, strange as it may seem, Russia's Vladimir Putin may come to Obama's rescue by trying to persuade his ally Assad to give up his chemical weapons.
