For all of the talk about keeping secrets and then about leaked secrets, it just takes the cake for France and England to call for action and the end to diddling, while the U.S. Secretary of State shakes his finger at Bashar al-Assad.
The best approach for military action against the Syrian government is one that is close to the vest.
Since the criteria for military intervention that was defined as a “red line” has been twice crossed, President Obama should be meeting with his cabinet, followed by a prompt briefing with members of Congress to obtain support for the American role.
Since the U.S. has the best technology and know-how, inevitably, American pilots will be taking the risks. As for boots on the ground to secure weapons of mass destruction, that should require the full engagement of allied coalition members. There is a role for UN troops too, down the road.
The administration of American involvement should be swift and complete. The organization for allied participation should have been done already. It is a matter of pulling the trigger as stealthily as possible, right?
Talking incessantly about it is intended to accomplish what?
