Can’t turn our heads

No military strike on someone who has used chemical weapons should be unthinkable for the greatest country on Earth. For me it’s the moral equivalent of watching the lady across the street getting mugged and we turn our head because we don’t want to get involved. Even if we don’t like the lady getting mugged, the punk doing the mugging deserves a bloody nose.

I shudder to think we have become the guy that ignores the mugging or screams for help because it’s none of our business, or we don’t want to get involved. We are the greatest country, and we need to act the part.
