Bluster as usual

Oh, the sanctimony of the rhetoric by administrations both here and abroad about Syria “crossing the red line in the sand” with reported use of chemical weapons on its own rebellious citizens. It's a specious argument, as though those killed by bullets and explosives are less dead than those killed by chemicals.

If outside governments sought to truly protect innocent lives, they would have intervened long before the Syrian regime approached this mythical boundary.

Truth is that this is all just political bluster and empty rhetoric, as usual.
