"moral imperative"


That's curious.
Somehow it's defused
by Americans being there.

Whereas, I guess, you see a moral imperative, I see a recklessness that should be avoided.

Action being the recklessness, I assume? Well, we can always keep writing those letters and hope the slaughter leaders get infected paper cuts from opening them

Seriously, Brad, aiming for a peaceful solution is an admirable goal but we can witness now what those attempts have accomplished so far. How many more thousands have to die to realize that they are not interested in peaceful solutions?

.

Any time Americans are actively involved
there seems to be  an assumption
of ulterior evil motives.

Burma has gas . . .
Maybe thatís it.

Unfortunately, you are right in this case. Yet,  South Korea, Chile, and the old Soviet Union are good counter examples.

It has happened before.

With all the latest power grabs and other decidedly undemocratic happenings in "the old Soviet Union" (the new Russia) one has to wonder about that.

Definately not. But I think maybe Mr. Putin wants to go back.
