There is something I don't understand:

If Assad kills with chemicals banned,

We will bomb him at will.

Other ways he can kill

And it won't  cross a line in the sand.

  • This is just a small bump in the road in one of 6 Syria policies candidate Psycho announced, i.e. let Russia and Assad take care of it.
    I was going to laud Nikki Haley for showing some intestinal fortitude in the U.N., but current stories are that the administration repudiated her talk about Russia had to take responsibility and about additional sanctions.

  • It won't cross a line in the sand that was set by, if memory serves, the Geneva Convention. I wish I felt happier about needing to research just what the convention said. P.S. I don't especially care if I should have used "which" in the first sentence -- "sand which" looked too funny then, although it can un-Serious things now.

  • According to conventional (pun) wisdom, you can never starve in a desert because of the sand which is there. A old chestnut , and very acorny, but I've always been nuts about it.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Is it on pita, as depicted at Naf Naf Grill?

  • I don't think so. What a pita!
