Is It The White Hats?

Top among all the things that bother and worry me about our evidently imminent attack on Syria is the certainty (he guarantees it!) of such wise men as John McCain that the opposition there is "moderate." And, hilariously in the way that a car crash is, "vetted." Good guys, all. Yeah. Right. Like the Mujahadin were in Afghanistan when Ronnie sidled up to them.

If there are good reasons to start something there -- and I haven't heard any that convince me -- not among them is the claim that the people rising against Assad are nothing but moderate; or, if they aren't all, that we can tell them apart from the bad ones. Over there, what defines "bad," anyway? Or, for that matter, "good."
