At 7:30 6:30pm ET I will be on the Jerry Doyle show to discuss the situation in Syria and the increasingly likely U.S. intervention.

Listen live here.

Below are some recent blog posts from Reason.com on Syria:

  • Peter Suderman wrote a list of eight reasons not to go to war in Syria. 
  • Nick Gillespie has asked why chemical weapons should be a "red line."
  • Matt Welch put together a collection of what liberal hawks think about the looming intervention. 
  • Ed Krayewski appeared on RT to discuss intervention in Syria and has also asked what Obama is thinking about regarding Syria. 
  • I have written about the use of limited strikes and how the U.S. knows chemical weapons were used last week near Damascus.

  1. Matthew Feeney Discusses Syria and Intervention

    OK, Syria…and intervention where exactly? Who’s intervening? Where? For what reason? And what’s he discussin re: Syria – history, current affairs?

    Is something going on somewhere?

    I’m confused…

    1. Apparently we are in a tacit war with Syria yet I can’t find any evidence of it.

      I am beginning to think it is just wishful thinking by Obama opponents.

      1. You need to pull back the trolling a bit. You’re usually good at it, but this is too obvious.

  2. That photo is on its knees *begging* for an alt-text.

    1. “Warboner Achieves Sweet Release”

    2. “Yosemite wildfire engulfs farmer’s silo”

    3. Totally OT:
      Believe it or not, that’s a photo of a normal launch of a Delta IV Heavy. It happens one was launched today and I watched the launch live.
      Of course, it was carrying a classified NRO satellite intended to take pictures of you and me, but still, it’s cool to watch one take off.
      It leaks hydrogen, which catches fire surrounding the bottom of the rocket as it ascends.

  3. So will the anti-war protests feature any “Obama Lied, People Died” posters?

    1. Obama killed, the party’s thrilled.

      1. Well, the Syrians are racist. Straight up.

      2. “Obama lied, so the fuck what?”

        BOOOOOSSSHHHHHH!!!!!!!

      3. Obama droned, the Constitution’s boned.

    2. Obama struck, because fuck…

      …you that’s why.

  4. Is this normal Garibaldi or mind-controlled Garibaldi?

  5. We must have a bunch of missiles getting close to the “best if used by” date. So State is reminding POTUS to use’m or lose’m.

  6. A Letter to Libertarians from a Former Libertarian

    I started reading things outside of the libertarian canon, primarily critical theory

    The pivotal moment for me was realizing that beliefs, ideas, and preferences don’t exist in a vacuum but are informed and created by the social, political, cultural, and material reality in which they develop. …“we’re all just individuals” is a cop out used to avoid confronting and interrogating why we think the things we think or why we like what we like.

    […]

    One way many libertarians reveal the context in which their ideas developed is by habitually siding with employers in discussions of employer-employee relations… Other similar demonstrations can be found in the prioritization of reducing or eliminating corporate and estate taxes and an emphasis on eradicating or drastically reducing social welfare programs with hardly a peep about the far more nefarious corporate welfare, as well as the tolerance of racist, misogynistic, and anti-LGBTQ people both in the movement and outside of it. …these priorities indicate a desire to preserve and propagate the interests of wealthy, straight, white men.

    Emphasis mine.

    1. This is what happens when people forget what libertarianism really is.

    2. Sorry, not ever a libertarian. I have ruled.

      1. “Critical Theory” is a signpost, warning you that there is no coherent thought past this point.

    3. One way many libertarians reveal the context in which their ideas developed is by habitually siding with employers in discussions of employer-employee relations and especially with regard to discriminatory hiring and firing practices

      Ouch! That strawman never knew what hit him!

      Other similar demonstrations can be found in the prioritization of reducing or eliminating corporate and estate taxes and an emphasis on eradicating or drastically reducing social welfare programs with hardly a peep about the far more nefarious corporate welfare

      Or Libertarians: Republicans who smoke weed.

      Basically, the standard leftist pap. No discussion on natural rights, rule utilitarianism, the role of government. Just “Libertarians are shills for BIG BUSINESS and tolerate offensive opinions!”

    4. The following was submitted by Megan Arnold, a student at George Mason University.

      AKA: My latest crush is a Marxist who looks like Ryan Gosling.

      1. I spend so much time surrounded by libertarians and thus expose myself to more potential for frustration.

        Bullshit Megan! I’ve never seen more than two libertarians together in person at a one time. After the last election we are truly the less than one percent (by vote).

    5. Ooops, I meant to post this in the PM links.
