I'm sure that sarin gas left a bad taste in the mouths of Assad's victims, too. He should be wiped off the face of this earth.<quoted text>
Leaving Assad unpunished leaves a bad taste in my mouth but this is probably the best solution for us diplomatically in the region.
Putin now shares responsibility and has incentive to see that the all goes according the the agreement.
Keep in mind that Iran has been showing signs of wanting to become a bit more cooperative. It would be a shame to give them reason to revert to their old rhetoric.
I agree that this seems like the best solution for the U.S. at this point. I'm glad, however, that a military strike is still on the table.
Since when has any Iranian regime needed a "reason" to revert to being wild-eyed extremists? They're just playing up to Sputum right now to maintain his half-hearted support.
