One U.S. official who has been briefed on the options on Syria said he believed the White House would seek a level of intensity “just muscular enough not to get mocked” but not so devastating that it would prompt a response from Syrian allies Iran and Russia.
“They are looking at what is just enough to mean something, just enough to be more than symbolic,” he said.
Apparently, the former Constitutional Law Prof His Most Cynical Majesty is still floating trial balloons on Syria, yet Chief Prostitute Jay Carney has no qualms. I personally would not use Ari Fleischer or Jay Carney to feed my plants, based on their inherent toxicity, BYMMV.
“Mockery Avoidance.” It’s too beautiful to fuck with.
