Enrique Ferro's insight:
Neocon Nicholas Kristof's despicable comment in the New York Times says it all: He comes back to the overused "barrel bombs" propaganda to demand an intervention on the Libyan template, which would make of Syria, or whatever remains after 5 years of US-sponsored terrorists' war, a barren land, and in a Hobbessian state of a permanent sectarian warfare. That is the future the demagogues of Empire are demanding, perhaps confidently thinking in a coming Clinton Dynast rule. Thereby they are threatening the future not only of Syria but of all of us. Hopefully something happens which will stop them in their tracks.
