No reason for the U.S. to get involved in fixing this. It's time for the United Nations to step up.

This is a major gripe with me. And surprised that someone with a "Clinton for President" profile would post it.

The word WMD was first used to express outrage at the aerial bombing of Guernica by fascists in Spain, made more famous by Picasso's Guernica. Of course, and largely because the US has the most powerful air force in the world, we have redefined the word to simply mean nuclear, chemical, and biological warfare. Yet aerial bombings remain the most damaging force killing thousands of innocent civilians around the world.

The US loves to bomb people. Perhaps they did not do this one but they have aerial bombed numerous cities for years. Bill Clinton bragged about "no Americans died" in the Serbian-Kosovo conflict. Right. Only 8,000 Serbian civilians died whose only crime was being Serbian in our fight to stop ethnic cleansing. And good old Hillary brags about the aerial campaign in Libya. "We came, we saw, he died". No Americans died and Obama did not even go to Congress because it was not a "war" just aerial bombing the hell out of Libyan people. Aerial bombing is the preferred war making plan in the US, especially by Democrats. Few, if any Americans die and no one is one the ground to report on the misery of civilians.

Great f#$^)*%^&%^ plan.

If you don't think that it is worth American lives than do not use WMD (aerial bombing) on civilians.
