Remember the Mayaguez!

Or don’t. I do. (Alas.)

Rather than throwing in my 2¢ worth on the vast, vociferous verbal volley and melée known as the “Great Syria Debate,”  here’s some pretty pictures for you to look at. I remain stubbornly agnostic on this topic and subject.

I haven’t heard anything that sways me one way or the other, BUT I have seen one thing that makes sense, although I do not agree with all of it, nor necessarily its conclusions: Your Labor Day Syria Reader, Part 2: William PolkThe Atlantic (online)

  1. Much better than the Syria Debate!

    Thanks for posting your fabulous drawing Hart… man of many talents!

  2. Thank you, Pamela. I keep waiting for some sense in all of this.

    Meantime, there’s plenty of time to draw!

  3. There is no sense. I like the theory that Obama is setting Congress up for anti-war vote. It would be a precedent.

  4. I cannot shake the nagging feeling that we are at one of those historical litmus test moments, and we’re failing badly at it.
