Has anyone been watching AMC's "Low Winter Sun"?

It's a dark cop drama based on a British Drama of the same name...I'm liking it (mostly) so far.

I'm interested in other's reactions.

I admit to being "on the fence" about the proposed strike on Syria -- until I read this

in Common Dreams.

The statistic that really got my attention was this:

Out of the 100,000 already killed in Syria by conventional weapons, a hefty 43% were ASSAD's people.

For some reason, I'd had the idea that the deaths there were something of a genocide

being perpetrated by Assad. This convinced me that the conflict truly IS a Civil War.

The use of chemical weapons is, of course, heinous, but to my understanding, we're not even sure if those weren't dispersed

by one of the very numerous factions of the rebel groups.

Aside from humanitarian relief, I think we need to stay the hell out of this.
