A curious question for interventionists of all stripes regarding Syria. What is the difference between what the Syrian army did in Homs and what the U.S. military did in Fallujah? And why?
Under what conditions would it be proper for the U.S. Army to besiege, shell, invade, and demolish a U.S. city? Say, Atlanta? Or Richmond? Or Cleveland? Or San Francisco?
And would anyone be entitled to intervene to prevent that?3:41 pm on March 3, 2012 Email Charles H. Featherstone
