Here's Hama, By the Way

Hama Before Assad Razed It

This is a photo of Hama in the 1940's, well before Assad razed it.

I'm not suggesting, of course, that we have to raze cities or deliberately slaughter civilians, only destroy enemies when we must.

In the Middle East, it appears that hesitancy comes across as weakness. When you shoot at a king, or a totalitarian political party, or a violent religious movement, you must kill him (or it).
