An Argument Against Bombing Syria…
…can be found simply by looking at who supports the action. Scott Lemieux at LGM notes: “Experts” Who Are Always Wrong About Everything Want to Bomb Syria.
Said experts include: Joe Lieberman, Bernard-Henri Levy, Karl Rove, Bill Kristol, Elliott Abrams, Leon Wieseltier as well as “Max Boot, Paul Berman, Dr. Clifford D. May, Marty Peretz, and Danielle Pletka.”
I can’t speak for every name on the list, but many of the more prominent ones no only have been wrong an awful lot, but also appear impervious to learning from past mistakes.
(Yes, I am being a bit snarky here, but sometimes snark illuminates the path of truth).
