Matt Welch Talks Syria on MSNBC


On Tuesday, Sept. 3, I appeared on MSNBC's Jansing & Co. to discuss Washington's debate over going to war with Syria:

NEXT: China Takes Russia's Side on Syria at G20

  1. I’ve always wondered if a study has ever been conducted correlating suicide rates among leftists from MSNBC and libertarian punditry on their channel.

  2. I can’t watch this because my browser doesn’t get MSNBC, but I hope Welch’s take got a response here similar to the aghasterrific one he got on the CNN show Lady and the Brit the other day.

  3. is Matt being forced to do some sort of penance and MSNBC is part of it? I get that you want to expose partisans to a different set of ideas but one aspect of partisans is their unwillingness to stray outside of their echo chambers.

  4. That anchorwoman sounded like a used car salesman trying to sell Obama’s agenda. “What’s it going to take to get you into supporting this war today?”

    The question everyone skeptical of this war is asking and no one seems to answer is: what would this actually accomplish? Even putting aside the question of whether we should be the ones doling out punishment for killing people the wrong way (we shouldn’t), does Obama, McCain & co. know that the only people who will be killed or harmed with a missile strike are the people responsible for the chemical attack? How can anyone say with a straight face that this will actually be a deterrent to dictators struggling to stay in power? There really is no logical explanation for this except that they love war and blowing people up.
