Force Trumps talk in Syria

The resignation of Kofi Annan, the point man for international efforts to bring peace to Syria, emphatically confirmed what events there had already been making clear: The country’s fate is far more likely to be decided by force than by negotiations.

Ya think?

Assad has been murdering his own citizens for more than a year. Assad had Lebanon’s Rafik Hariri blown to bits in 2005.

Who is naive enough to think you can talk a tyrant into being nice?

Progressives and other fools who believe in the UN, that’s who.

And Nancy Pelosi, Hilary Clinton and John Kerry, all of whom recently touted Assad as a reformer.
