Contradicting President Obama’s assertion, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said this morning on “This Week” that the president does not have the authority to order a military strike on Syria without Congressional approval.
Ted Cruz is using the slippery slope fallacy: "If we do this, then this will happen! And this! And this! AND THIS!" He's getting the American public hyped about the idea that we 'definitely' will go to war with Russia and China as a direct result of intervening in Syria. This isn't to say that I think we should send our troops into Syria, but he's only making the American public more scared about what will come of intervening (if we do). What we need right now is to be calmed, not scared into refusing help to people in need.
Who will prevail in the Arab awakening, Hobbes, Khomeini or Jefferson?
Sarah Kubena's insight:
I very much agree with that Friedman is trying to say; we have to have some way of keeping control after we (might) take Assad out of power somehow. I'm glad someone is realizing that it is "all the same war," and we need to do something to prevent the total collapse of the government if Assad was taken out somehow.
