Because on the right, we are vindictive like that...
Word today, John Kerry is saying it is undeniable that there Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) in Syria. When president Bush said this about Iraq, most of the liberals who subsequently targeted president Bush as liar were on board for invading Iraq.
WASHINGTON — Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday that the use of chemical weapons in attacks on civilians in Syria last week was undeniable and that the Obama administration would hold the Syrian government accountable for what he called a “moral obscenity” that had shocked the world’s conscience.
I doubt conservatives are eager for a Syrian expedition at this point. But what of the general public? Is there any appetite at all for yet another foreign intervention? I sincerely doubt it. And even a few cruise missiles at a million dollars a piece might be too much for voters to stomach in light of things like a Detroit bankruptcy, and Chicago school kids having to go through no man's land to get to school these days. We'll see. But if WMD's are not found the temptation to start with "Kerry lied, people died", or even "Obama lied, people died." will be hard to resist.
Of course if they find WMDs, that's another story. But don't hold your breath.
