Subject: RE: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Sorry, Keith. Moral outrage by itself is just not a good basis for foreign policy.    Thinking is also sometimes useful.   You might try it sometime.

And if the Arab states around Syria are not willing to clearly stand with Obama in supporting an attack on Syria--without putting an impossible precondition on it-- that says a lot about their seriousness in dealing with this.

Further, it is still not established how you and other zealots will deal with the inevitable "collateral damage" from attacks on Syria.   

And by the way, let me congratulate you on the wonderful job you have done in convincing your fellow Britons that an attack on Syria is essential.
