Committing a small act of war is like being just a little bit pregnant. Has anyone done the calculus to ask what a lone Syrian agent might do to this country in retaliation? If we believe they are capable of unleashing chemical warfare on their own population, why would they have any qualms about hitting the U.S. with the same weaponry? We know that DHS has no plans to seal our borders. What makes you think this of any concern to them? Another domestic terrorist attack would justify all sorts of increases to the federal government's domestic security apparatus, just like it did last time. Do you think the country would be complaining about drones or NSA surveilance if such an attack were to happen here?
Please note that I never said that the president or anyone in his staff would consider a violent act against the U.S. to be a bad thing. When I used the word “anyone”, I was thinking that there may, just may, be someone with cajones still on staff in the Pentagon. I should have been more specific. Apologies.
