During WWII, Franklin D. Roosevelt was informed that the Germans were conducting mass executions of Jews and Gypsies at the death camps. American Jewish leaders asked Roosevelt to bomb the camps, to disable the execution systems.. He refused. Roosevelt was asked to bomb the railroad tracks leading to the camps. He refused. The cited reason for contemplating an attack on Syria is the Syrian killing of thousands of civilians, But, more than six million civilians were killed during the Holocaust, so apparently it is not the number of civilians being killed that determines justification for an attack. Perhaps justification depends upon who the attackers are, i.e., Germans vs Syrians. Or, perhaps it depends upon who the victims are, i.e. Jews vs Syrians. Both involved the use of gas. Obama should explain that to the American people. Of course, there seem to be a multitude of conflicting facets to US foreign policy. Hillary Clinton, commenting on Assad's killing of Syrians, said, "Assad is different. He is a reformer."
