And while we’ve been inundated with news on the Syrian conflict and recent atrocities related to chemical warfare, I’ve been very purposely mute, largely because there’s not much more I can contribute on the matter.

Still, I find the general “let those people sort it out for themselves” attitude conveyed by both congressional leaders and the public at large deeply unsettling on a number of levels.
