Patrick J. Buchanan: America Says ‘No!’ to a Beltway War

How many Syrians should we kill to restore the credibility of Barack Obama? How many Syrians should we kill to impress upon Iran how resolute we are? How many Syrians should we kill to reassure nervous allies that Uncle Sam will forever come fight their wars for them?

Should we not set as high a standard of proof before we kill a thousand Syrians and plunge the United States into another war?
