Briefly on Syria

::deep breath:: i’ve struggled with this and have struggled hard. i worked my ass off for then-presidential nominee john kerry, for then-state senator barack obama and for both in their respective general elections. it breaks my heart to hear and read and see what the innocent syrian people are suffering, and the extent to which al-assad will commit atrocities to maintain his grip on power. i cannot, however, support a US military intervention in syria; i hope to god it’s not naïve, but i resolutely believe a diplomatic solution is still possible, and that American intervention would lead to more tragedy, chaos and uncertainty within the region.
