Matthews: "The President made a strong moral argument for taking action."

Well, maybe, if you don't count the absence of evidence that Assad was responsible or explain why it is moral for us to bomb innocent Syrian civilians, no matter who used the chemicals.

Still, there is lots of international law that says you don't cowboy up and war wherever on the planet you wish on your own, when you have not been attacked That's what the UN is for. That's okay for us to violate, but not a treaty on chemical weapons to which Syria never became a party?

If so, let's stop being hypocrites at huge expense to the US and shut down the UN, as Republicans wish. Make a stunning high rise office building or condo.

What, besides an enormous expense, is the difference between shutting it down and ignoring it?

Geez, as lousy as the intel was for the Iraq War, at least Bushco went in to the UN with their bare faces hanging out and presented whatever crap they were using to justify that war.
