So who would Jesus bomb?

Here we go again folks! MSNBC is in full war-monger mode. Tweety mentioned how it would be generous of the US to "intervene". Such a nice man. The NY Times and WaPo are leading the charge again to kill people in the middle east. And for what reason? Did Assad use sarin gas on people as claimed by so many?

Not so fast folks. We've seen this before. In 2013, the "line in the sand" episodes - Khan al Assal & Ghouta - neither of which were definitively proven to be from Assad's forces, these same new outlets screamed for intervention and bombings and death because Assad had used chemical weapons. Unfortunately for these voices, it turned out to not be the case. The Times retraction years later was tepid at best and only half-assed. Haven't we been down the Iraq has WMD's road before? Why do we jump to conclusions because our propaganda media outlets cheer for war?

Assad has been gaining the upper hand in Syria. Peace negotiations are set to begin in Brussels. Why would he do this now?

I'm not saying he did or didn't use poison gas. I am saying that nobody has any definitive evidence and the last time this happened we were lied to by the media and our government agencies.

So here we are in the new Trump era, and I see my fellow left-leaning liberals jumping on the war bandwagon. When you find yourself aligned with McCain and the New York Times and right wing radio hosts, it may be time to check your position. And MSNBC sounds more and more like Fox News circa 2003.

Everybody, especially the DoD needs to take a breath. Instead we get to hear the "we must take action" BS pouring out of MSNBC.
