Pelosi: We have to bomb Syria to find out what’s in it

Remember when war was a bad thing?


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) late Thursday appeared to push for military action in response to the Syrian regime’s alleged use of chemical weapons on its people…

“It is clear that the American people are weary of war,” Pelosi said. “However, [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad] gassing his own people is an issue of our national security, regional stability and global security. We must be clear that the United States rejects the use of chemical weapons by Assad or any other regime.”

A few years ago she called Iraq a “failure,” but that was different. That was when the other guys were in charge.

It might seem confusing, but it’s very simple: Sometimes going to war is bad, and those who do it are evil. Other times, the President of the United States is a Democrat.
