Exclusive: State Department Quietly Warning Region on Syrian WMDs

My first issue with this breaking story has to do with the definition of WMD's.  It appears Hillary Clinton and the State Department have no problem referring to Syria's chemical weapons program, (which includes mustard gas and sophisticated nerve agents, such as sarin gas, as well as biological weapons) as WMD's.  How then, are the democrats able to claim that no WMD's were discovered in Iraq?  The whole world knows of Saddam's mustard gas that he employed on the genocide of Kurds in Northern Iraq.  We also know that missiles with XV nerve and sarin gas were discovered in Iraq.  Typical liberal rationalization if you ask me. 

For a look at items discovered in Iraq, refer back to comments on my post from May of 2005: "Was The War Justified?!"

As for the issue at hand.  My opinion is the same as it was on the issue of the war in Iraq!  Innocent people are being slaughtered by a tyrant.  They do not have the ability to defend themselves.  WE DO!!!  Evil flourishes when good men do nothing, and it is morally wrong to sit back and do nothing when we have the capability to stop this.  Instead, obama sits back on his haunches waiting for someone else to make the first move (just like the Iran/Israel saga), until this turns into another Rwanda and all there is left for us to do is to look back and say once again, "Never again!"
