It’s been two years since the Ghouta chemical attack in which Bashar Assad crossed Obama’s famous, yet inconsequental, “red line” by slaughtering upwards of 1,000 people with a single sarin gas attack. Air raids targeting citizens consisting of mainly of shells, barrel bombs, and chlorine gas have only increased. Last week Syrian government forces launched a brutal bombing campaign on the town of Douma killing at least 82 people and wounding hundreds. As has been typical of such attacks, it barely registered a blip in western news. It’s no secret that Bashar Assad has gotten a pass to terrorize, torture and slaughter Syrian citizens. While the geopolitics at play in Syria are quite complex, the failure of the international community to put a no fly zone in place, or take any due action for the regime’s unremitting and blatant war crimes, rests heavily with the U.S. Congress.
