Genocide in Syria?

If it's genocide, the U.S. is obliged to act, says Anne Marie Slaughter, at the Washington Post, "Obama should remember Rwanda as he weighs action in Syria."

She's calling for humanitarian intervention, regime change frankly. It's a human rights argument. Leftists can get behind that kind of stuff. Just not intervention for raw realpolitik. That's criminal.
