Syrian "use" of chemical weapons of mass destruction. Do you care? Will Colin Powell be taken out of mothballs and stuck in front of the UN to give a repeat speech, scriped already, to be known as Colin's Iraq Speech, redux?

Pepe Escobar, here. R2P and R2A? Responsibility to protect, responsibility to attack.

Escobar explores this war's version of Bandar's and Obama's pastiche Coalition of the Willing. With Saudis and Israelis uber-willing, to hold Anglo-American coats during a fight; France rumbling.

That last link, from here. I recall a wisdom of Barry Weintraub from when I was in law school. He regarded international events and problems as less important to him than the man who fixed his car.
