Taking Syria’s weapons is a lame punishment
So let me put Syria in a different perspective. Stay with me here. A child breaks a lamp playing ball in the house after being told repeatedly, “Don’t play ball in the house.” Mom says, “You’ll get punished, but I have to agree on your punishment first with Dad.” Mom and Dad aren’t getting along, so Mom is worried. Then the kid’s friend says, “Give me all of your balls so you can’t break any more lamps.” Mom says, “That sounds fair; no punishment then for breaking the lamp.” OK, got it!
