See you’re doing the thing I spoke to in the article, trying to straddle two truths. If you know the western media is lying about Assad (and they unquestionably are), that’s all you need to know in order to take a solid stance on Syrian intervention. You know there’s no way to get a clear picture of who Assad is, and you certainly know there’s no solid grounds for regime change. If all you know is that your government is lying to you and it’s hard to know anything about Assad, your nation’s military forces need to leave Syria the hell alone.

I write about the end of illusions.
