A thought experiment

What do you suppose would be happening now if, all things else being equal, Syria were located in, say, the middle of equatorial Africa?

If you say “We’d still be discussing sending a message” or “I don’t know,” you should take a quick glance at what has been happening in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for more than 15 years. Then ask yourself, When was the last time you heard a politician or pundit say We have to send a message about those war crimes and crimes against humanity?
