Bashar Assad is a third-rate thug who is quashing elements of al Qaeda because he inherited a secular dictatorship. He is so far removed from being a "Hitler" that anyone who equates him, and Syria, with the Germany of 1938 is out of their element when it comes to history or foreign policy.
I hope they vote no on intervening in Syria. There is nothing there that is worth one American life. Syria is a meaningless, irrational player in Mideast politics. Helping the "rebels" in Syria is the equivalent of handing al Qaeda a country in which to train. And John Kerry is a stunning failure as a Secretary of State. Assad equals Hitler? This is a "Munich" moment?
John Kerry and John McCain are incredibly incompetent old fools. Get them off the stage.
